The New England Patriots have acquired wide receiver Chad Ochocinco after he accepted a restructured three-year contract from the Patriots, a source told ESPN senior NFL writer John Clayton.

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Bengals will receive two late-round draft selections, one each in 2012 and 2013, for Ochocinco.

Ochocinco was seen catching a plane to Boston on Thursday. He was scheduled to make $6.35 million for the Bengals this year. The Patriots wanted him to restructure his contract to fit their cap.
