Sources: Pats to cut Chad Ochocinco

By ESPN.com staff


After spending Thursday trying to trade wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, the New England Patriots decided to release him, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Patriots pushed trade conversations with other teams up to near the end of the day's transaction deadline at 4 p.m. But despite conversations with other teams, there was not enough interest to make a deal.
