08:01 AM ET 01.21 | Marvin Lewis intimated that Chad Ochocinco's tweet to a Boston reporter was about no one talking about him, but that may change. If [Ochcocinco] and the Cincinnati Bengals are truly headed for a divorce as speculated on Bengals.com, Hue Jackson's presence as head coach would seem to make the Raiders a potential destination. If the team???s own Web site is floating the possibility, there's probably something there. When Jackson was hired, Ochocinco said on his Twitter account: "Congratulations 2 Hue Jackson for becoming the Oakland Raiders new head coach. Best receiver coach I ever had." Earlier this month, there were these tweets: "I would not care where Hue Jackson got a job. I would go play for him, run through a wall, jump in front of a bus, etc. u get the point."

Ocho Cinco = a thorn in Marvin's side.

Tuesday he flirted with the Pats. Now the Raiders. Where will the next stop be on the Ochostinko Loser Train?

Don't really care.....just as long he's not in Cincy next year

He seems to be on the fast track for that.

"Jump in front of a bus?"

Ocho, don't you mean "throw someone under a bus?" More your style, dude.

Sorry, the Raiders are where careers go to die. I'm not sure where careers go when they're already dead.

January 21, 2011  08:39 AM ET

That's the place for him. he'll like it there.

He was just referring to the 500 lb. elephant in the room.

I'm sensing the Bengals fans are not displeased with your departure OchoBozo. Take TBlows with you to the land of the Crypt Keeper and fade into obscurity quietly.

Don't bring that up. Albert Haynesworth had his own thread yesterday.

"jump in front of a bus, .." Please Hue, do the right thing. Give the word.

Going to the Raiders implies that you realize your pro football carrer is over.

January 21, 2011  10:15 AM ET

Cincy is going no where in that division...they are 3rd at best.

And, Carson Palmer is just an ok QB...

TO and Ocho are both gone, moving on to greener pastures....

Never thought that I would actually miss Brett Farve rumors, but this is getting sad.

My sentiments exactly. He should fit right in.

Exactly; haven't seen 85 do anything like what he's tweeting for anyone but himself.

Put him on the playground Al Davis runs, and let's see how those two play together. The verbal jabs would be great!
