Illustration for article titled Ocho Cinco: Excuse Me, While I Kiss This Star

You've got to give props to Chad Formerly-Johnson, whose talents as a receiver are almost equal to his marketing acumen. Managing once again to somehow keep an 0-4 team in the spotlight, he vowed on Wednesday to score a touchdown and kiss the Dallas star when the Bengals play in Irving on Sunday. But he wasn't through. Ocho Cinco also revealed that he had tried to orchestrate a trade to the Cowboys during the off season.

"If I was in Dallas, they would have to change all of our damn games to pay-per-view because you need to pay to see that," Ocho Cinco said. "I'm serious. I'm so serious. They would have to put all the games on pay-per-view. Because you can't just watch a show like that for free; 81 and 85? Come on, now. Please." Ocho Cinco said he's angry the 0-4 Bengals are playing so poorly. The receiver told reporters to put Cowboys defensive coordinator Brian Stewart on notice that the Bengals are ready to break out. "Somebody's got to pay," he said. "I don't have a choice. I don't have a choice. Somebody tell Pacman or Adam or whatever the hell he wants to be called — he is going to get it. Anthony Henry, he's going to get it." Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones took exception to Ocho Cinco's declaration that their breakout would come at Dallas' expense. “When Sunday gets here I’ll be ready,” Jones said. “I expect him to have the same horrible games [as] the first four weeks. He hasn’t done nothing so far, so hopefully we can keep it like that.”


To be fair, Ocho Cinco said he would kiss the star with respect. "I've got so much respect for y'all," he said. "If I score Sunday, I love Dallas so much, I'm going to take my helmet off, get a fine and kiss the star." Ocho Cinco Vows To Kiss Cowboys Star After A TD On Sunday [USA Today]
