Chad Ochocinco Takes a Huge $2 Million Pay Cut to Stay With the New England Patriots

How media savvy is Chad Ochocinco? This guy just reconstructed his contract and took a massive pay cut in order to remain with the New England Patriots next season—he'll make just $1 million instead of the $3 million that he was originally owed by the team—and he somehow managed to do it and get the news out about it on the same exact day that Tim Tebow held his first press conference as a New York Jet. As a result? No one cares about his pay cut, he flies under the radar, and he gets to stay with an organization that's got a good shot of making it back to the Super Bowl next season.

See? Savvy. That's the best play we've seen you make in the last year, Ocho.
