08:06 AM ET 06.20 | Chad Ochocinco isn't talking much these days, perhaps instead focusing on turning around his career. "For me, it's about getting back to the basics, going back to the root of how it all started, not as far as playing in Miami, but as far as how my game goes and getting back to what we're all used to seeing," said Johnson, who after averaging 80 catches for 1,162 yards and seven touchdowns from 2002 to 2010 in Cincinnati hardly made an impact in New England last season. "I think I kind of lost that. I'm looking to go back to Chad Johnson, and just make it live again." If the way Ochocinco practiced Tuesday is any indication of what he has left in the tank, his career in Miami should last quite a bit longer than his first interview.

Hey Mick come on. He just changes his name back to Chad Johnson and everything is perfect

If Miami is hoping to pick his brains, they're going to be disappointed.

I'm still surprised that the Dolphins never retired 85 in honor of Nick Buoniconti.

They'll wish they had.

If they're smart, they'll cut him before the season starts, but I would never accuse the Dolphin front office of being smart.

10-1 is pretty good

But 85 is not.

That's not what I heard. I heard that Chad was sharing a lot of what he learned with the Pats.




Focus, depth of field, camera angle, setting up the shot. Valuable information

"Pretending" is about as close as he'll get.

I'm glad he's gone from here.

Try to learn the playbook this time Chad, that might help.
