Tom Brady Will Throw To Chad Ochocinco If He's Open

New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has a reporter from OCNN (Ochocinco News Network) credentialed for Super Bowl XLVI.

During today's media day, Mike Freeman of CBS Sports reports that the OCNN got an interesting response when he asked Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to throw a pass to Ochoinco in the Super Bowl.

"Tell him to get open and I'll throw it to him," Brady said.

During the regular season, Ochocinco caught 15 of the 32 passes thrown his way for 276 yards and one touchdown. Ochocinco was active, but barely played in the playoff win over the Denver Broncos and was inactive for the AFC Championship Game after missing some preparation time to attend the funeral of his father.

Given Ochocinco's lack of roles on special teams, or versatility to play cornerback in a pinch, it's no lock that Ochocinco will be active in Super Bowl XLVI.
