"I'm Just Still Me:" Chad Ochocinco Returns to His Miami Roots

June 14, 2012

We caught up with Chad Ochocinco in Miami during one of his off-season workouts at Bommarito Performance Systems, and the Pro Bowl receiver reminded us why he's one of the NFL's best pass catchers of all time. His precise cuts, explosive routes and high-rev motor were just as impressive as his story of rising from early adversity to NFL superstardom. Despite his uncharacteristic sub-par season last year, the workout made clear that Ochocinco is still one of the most athletic receivers in the game.

As the newest member of the Miami Dolphins, Ochocinco brings experience, work ethic and big-play potential to a team in need. Peter Bommarito, Ochocinco's off-season performance coach, calls his client one of the most impressive athletes he has ever worked with. "The strength in his hips, hamstrings, quads—and his ability to break—is something we haven't seen before," says Bommarito. "People have strength, but do you have strength at high speeds?  Does it transfer? He definitely has those abilities, and you can see why he's been so successful in the league."

After watching Ochocinco's off-season training, do you think he still has what it takes to be a difference-maker for the Miami Dolphins? Let us know through Facebook.
