Former New England Patriot WR Chad Ochocinco is no longer unemployed. The 34-year-old reality TV star, whose real name is Chad Johnson, signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins on Monday, according to the Miami Herald.

Johnson grew up in the seedy Liberty City neighborhood of Miami and attended Miami Beach high school.

He worked out with the Dolphins on Monday -- four days after he being released by the Patriots for underperforming.

Chad's final year with the Patriots was unremarkable.

Last year he caught 15 passes for 276 yards and one touchdown in 15 regular season games and he caught just one pass for 21 yards in the Super Bowl.

Before the Dolphins signed Johnson, an NFL scout told The Miami Herald on Monday that Ochocinco seemed to have lost his explosiveness and might not bring enough for the $925,000 10-year veteran minimum a team would have to pay him.

But the Dolphins signed him anyway. Good luck with that.

      This is why I can't take Evelyn serious. I saw on Necolebitchie that she wrote a letter to her younger self saying how she was going to better be/c she know young girls are watching her. Saying that she is not proud of her actions on BBW and she is trying to better going forward..

      Thats bullshyt.. If you know young girls are watching you and u aren't proud of the way you are being potrayed.. then why would u take a pic like this? Was it necessary?

      Raging Bull/Beavis and Butthead Nostrils irked me!

      She gave Thuzie a major side-eye like, "Twisty-tongue better not tell Kesha the Kitten that I told Mr. Tami the Terrible what she said."

      Kesha the Kitten got in Mr. Tami the Terrible's square-ass and broad shoulders last night! I was like, "Go Kesha the Kitten...you are making me proud."

      Johnnie Mae was wrong for pointing out that err'body did something positive except for Jen. Jen was the most positive this season behind Royce the Rejected! Jen rose above the drama, kept the G-code tight, and did not let those angry birds see her sweat. Then on top of that, she had the nerve to slay ( :dead: ) them at the reunion in Valentino, Chanel, Louboutins, and Lucid! Oh yeah, and Jen showed how she is building Lucid from the ground up (and it is now in several boutiques) and Hozado went and put plastic crystals on an $8 Made in China palette and trying to sell that ish for $25! Whatever bish :rolleyes:
