With next year’s NFL season still up in the air, players are trying to get by where they can, if that means moving in with their parents or changing careers. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Chad Ochocino is trying out for an MLS team. The controversial wide receiver has a four-day tryout with Sporting Kansas City. Ochocinco confirmed his possible career change via Twitter saying, “Due to the NFL lockout, I’m excited to be able to follow my childhood dream of playing for a Major League Soccer team.”
While Sporting Kansas City is claiming this is not a publicity stunt, they were in the news last week for announcing that their new stadium would be called Livestrong Sporting Park, despite Lance Armstrong’s foundation not paying for naming rights.
At least Ochocinco is still playing futbol!
