The Bengals have traded wide receiver Chad Ochocinco to New England for two draft picks. The outspoken receiver will accept a three-year restructured contract from the Patriots.
He caught 67 passes for 831 yards and four touchdowns last season.
Ochocinco was supposed to make $6.35 million this season, but the Patriots needed to him to re-do his deal so he would fit into their salary cap.
New England also acquired Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth earlier in the day.
