After much hoopla and fanfare. Former Cincinnati Bengals Pro Bowl Wide Receiver Chad ‘OchoCinco’ Johnson passed on an XFL tryout at kicker.
According to ESPN’s Kevin Seifert;
“Johnson informed the league Sunday that he had decided against participating. He has not commented publicly about the decision. “
Johnson was supposed to be part of a pool of kickers trying out for the XFL this past Monday. Reports had Johnson in Miami at the time of his tryout.
After stalking Ochocinco’s Twitter, I feel far more confident that he skipped out on his XFL kicking tryout today. https://t.co/BojGHd9mfY— Konnor Fulk (@XFLKonnor) January 21, 2020
No word on if the DC Defenders decided to sign PFTCommenter to a contract at kicker.
