The Redskins wanted Ocho so badly in fact, that they were willing to give up two first round draft picks, the cure to cancer, a solid 24 carat gold Koala Bear statue (worth over $4 billion), Miley Cyrus' virginity and 93 percent ownership in the team.
|The Redskins offered Miley's virginity for Ocho in |
2008, but the Bengals turned it down.
Of course, if you're an old Bengals fan or a fan over the age of seven, you know what happened: Mike Brown vetoed the deal.
Mike Brown loves vetoing deals.
He's vetoed more deals than the last 23 Presidents of the United States combined.
If the Colts offered Mike Brown, Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne for Morgan Trent and the Bengals water boy, Brown would laugh at the offer for 30 minutes, explain to everyone that Trent and the water boy are under contract with the team and then veto the deal. And then he would take a crap in a Paul Brown Stadium bathroom and ask a Hamilton County official to wipe.
Anyway, back to Ocho.
Ocho was officially traded to the Patriots on Friday for two draft picks, only they weren't first round draft picks, they were fifth and sixth round draft picks. And they're not even for the same year. The fifth round pick is for 2012 while the sixth round pick is for 2013.
The Bengals only have one and a half scouts, so the last thing they need to be doing is trading anyone for draft picks.
Usually, the Bengals don't let their fans down until at least week three of the regular season, this year it looks like they're trying to break new ground.
