Chad Ochocinco wants to play until he's 40, the Miami Dolphins wide receiver told the South Florida-Sun Sentinel.
"I'm going to play 'til I'm 40 years old, and this year I'm going to show the world I can," the 34-year-old Ochocinco told the paper. "There is physically nothing wrong with me. I want to race Clyde (Gates) right now. I've asked him."
Gates ran a 4.31 40-yard dash, which was the fastest among wide receivers in the 2011 NFL draft.
"I've still got it," Ochocinco said. "I'm a lot smarter and I'm still fast."
Ochocinco signed with the Dolphins last month, shortly after being released by the New England Patriots. The Miami native has made six Pro Bowls.
