So much for that Chad Ochocinco-T.J. Houshmandzadeh reunion. Reports flurried on Sunday that the ex-teammate of Ochocinco in Cincinnati was going to work out for the New England Patriots on Monday. Nope, guess again.
Not only was Houshmandzadeh a no-show at Pats' training camp on Monday, but it's unlikely that he would be brought in, according to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, who made an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show on Tuesday.
"Houshmandzadeh makes no sense," he said, adding, "There doesn't seem to be a seat for him. He wouldn't seem to fit whatsoever." (via WEEI)
Florio added that Bill Belichick and company were only doing their due diligence.
"I think that Bill Belichick is willing to turn over every rock out there, and he turned over three rocks yesterday and I think he didn't like what he found. ... You never know what the motivation is. Maybe it's just to apply a foot to the rear end of the guys who are already there." (via WEEI)
