Cincinnati Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco began a four day tryout with Sporting Kansas City of Major League Soccer yesterday. Can we even call him Cincinnati WR seeing there is no NFL right now? He could be a member of an MLS team before we know it….
Where do Chad’s chances stand…
ďIíve said this beforeóIíve always considered it from the very beginning to be a long shot. But I can tell you this, we bring trialists in all the time,Ē Vermes said. ďTo be frank, theyíre always long shots. But we also bring guys in with much lesser physical tools than he has and they get trials with us as well. Itís very normal in our sport to do this. Itís just different because itís a guy whoís coming from the NFL.
It’s a pretty interesting proposition for Kansas City. I’m sure Ochocinco’s skills are severely lacking, but like the coach said, he’s got physical tools. He’s big and he sure is fast. Then there’s that other side of it…. Ticket sales. You don’t think Kansas City would be an attraction if he was on the team. I think that may compensate for his lack of actual soccer skill. For him it’s not about the money though….
ďI would play for free,Ē he said.
