08:03 AM ET 06.27 | After trying out for an MLS team and riding a bull, leading Mike Brown to suggest snake-wrangling, Chad Ochocinco is at it again. Now the wide receiver says he will wrestle alligators. "I just one-upped [Brown]: I am wrestling alligators," Ochocinco told WXIX-TV following a recent training session. "Actually, catching them in the wild, which is going to be really interesting, I am catching them in the wild. Don't laugh, like I am serious and you'll see it. And I am living life. It's pretty dangerous, I could lose an arm, lose a leg, you know ... so was bull riding," Ochocinco said. "So the chance of me getting hurt on the bull is similar to the chance as me winning the lottery, slim to none. And the same thing with alligators. If he bites me, I can still play with one arm [because] I can kick, seriously."

Lets hope this time he does some serious damage.

The alligator could bite his head off, I doubt he would miss it....TO and Ocho ion a Monday morning...what a way to start a week

Gator bait...yeah, that would be good.

Man, this guy is gonna have a nervous breakdown after he retires. Talk about being addicted to attention and fame. Pathetic.

Hang a ham around his neck just to increase our chances of happiness.

Good Luck Mr. Alligator.

Watch Ocho be in the next "Messing with Sasquatch" ads, too.

I actually think it would be more interesting for him to do everyday jobs for a day instead of stunts. One day volunteer to work.work with construction workers. One day volunteer with a fire crew. One day volunteer as a teacher's assistant. I think people would gravitate to him more if he worked along side people than just doing stunts.

Bro, that wouldn't make the media cover Chad. Being outrageous sells just ask T.O.

Good idea, but we're talking about Ocho here... Nothing about working with ordinary people screams, "ME! ME! ME!", like he wants.

Word - I'd have about 30 minutes of his **** then he'd be out the door.

But any how... I give S.I. a B+, for finding a way to get both clowns, T.O. and Ocho, in the threads today.

June 27, 2011  08:40 AM ET

"I could lose an arm"

He'd have to change his name to Chad Uno-Armo

Good point. Yes, Kudos to the whole staff at FN.

Uh, is that what the announcers mean when they say Chad's developped a case of "Alligator Arms"

June 27, 2011  08:45 AM ET

Crocodile Done Deal?

June 27, 2011  08:52 AM ET

Here's an idea for a novel stunt: run good pass routes and catch the ball.

June 27, 2011  09:03 AM ET

Like most of what Ocho says, this story is just a croc.
