Patriots WR Chad Ochocinco is not on the field when New England runs its no-huddle package, and there are still times when either Brady or another teammate is telling him where he is supposed to be lining up.
Part of the discussion during their week 7 bye will likely will be what the Patriots would lose if they cut ties: the team gave a fifth-round pick in 2012 as well as a sixth-rounder in 2013 to the Bengals. Ochocinco received a $4.5 million signing bonus as soon as he joined the team, and his base salary of $1 million is guaranteed because he was on the roster in Week 1.
The team was rumored to be interested in Brandon Lloyd, who has since been traded to the Rams. The no-huddle is a big part of the Patriots offensive scheme and no being in that means Ocho's fantasy potential is pretty dim.
