Patriots head coach Bill Belichick declined to address the specifics of the Albert Haynesworth trade or the move to acquire Ochocinco in his Friday morning press conference.
Ochocinco will fill a need the Patriots have had for a taller, experienced wide receiver who can take some of the attention away from Wes Welker or Deion Branch. The team opted to part ways with Randy Moss four games into last season, trading him to the Minnesota Vikings mid-season.
In 14 games last year, Ochicinco caught 67 passes for 831 yards (12.4 avg.) and four touchdowns. He has recorded 751 catches for 10,783 yards (14.4 avg.) and 66 TDs over his 10-year career with the Bengals.
