Former NFL WR Chad Ochocinco Thinks He Can Play For All 32 Teams, We Decide For Every Team

The very seasoned and bombastic Chad Ochocinco, 43, made another crazy declaration recently when he announced that he could return to football today and make any of the official 32 NFL rosters.

As part of a promotional tour for his upcoming boxing match, the former Bengals Pro Bowl receiver joined The Ringer to discuss his debut on the canvas, and he added a jarring notice for every NFL general manager to hear.

While players like Ochocinco, including former teammate Terrell Owens, never decline an opportunity to make headlines, and they sometimes claim they can still play professional football, the Bengals legend presents an interesting possibility that may carry an ounce of truth.

Looking at all 32 teams, we have decided whether Ochocinco would make the team right now, based on factors such as roster, receiving talent, etc.:

Arizona Cardinals

Atlanta Falcons
Absolutely not.

Baltimore Ravens
Yes, after losing out on the Julio Jones sweepstakes.

Buffalo Bills
No, but a Diggs-Ochocinco tandem could sell tickets.

Carolina Panthers
No, unless he can block for Sam Darnold.

Chicago Bears
Yes. And Ryan Pace would still have a job.

Cincinnati Bengals
Yes. Homecoming!

Cleveland Browns
Yes. Increases the likelihood of Mayfield getting arrested three-fold.

Dallas Cowboys
Yes. As the owner of a lemur and Bengal tiger, Ochocinco would lend a hand training Ezekiel Elliott's dogs.

Denver Broncos

Detroit Lions
Yes. We just can't name a receiver on their roster.

Green Bay Packers
No. Aaron Rodgers would retire and send an SC-100 with a postage stamp from Hawaii.

Houston Texans
Yes. As backup quarterback.

Indianapolis Colts

Jacksonville Jaguars
No, but people would rather see him than Tebow. Sad.

Kansas City Chiefs
A pass from Mahomes would send him to hospice.

Las Vegas Raiders

Los Angeles Chargers

Los Angeles Rams
Yes. As the new assistant coach to help pull McVay off the field since the previous coach got into legal trouble.

Miami Dolphins

Minnesota Vikings
Yes. Kirk Cousins would like that.

New England Patriots
Yes. Homecoming, part 2.

New Orleans Saints
Yes, as a Taysom Hill-Swiss Army Knife player.

New York Giants

New York Jets

Philadelphia Eagles

Pittsburgh Steelers
As a player: No.

As Juju Smith-Schuster's brand consultant: Yes

San Francisco 49ers

Seattle Seahawks
No. Russell Wilson would run out of Seattle quicker than DK Metcalf.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tennessee Titans
Hell no. He can help carry newcomer Julio Jones' bags to the locker room.

Washington Football Team
Yes, but is likely to call the team by their old name.
