If only 49ers would've gotten Ochocinco

The San Francisco 49ers' reported interest in veteran receiver/entertainer Chad Ochocinco suddenly makes a little more sense.

Michael Crabtree's foot injury will leave the 49ers short-handed through camp and possibly into the regular season. The team will have to consider adding a veteran wideout in free agency, in my view.

I still think adding Ochocinco would have been a curious move for a team with so many younger players on offense. Former 49ers running back Michael Robinson, who recently agreed to terms on a new contract with Seattle, was also among those chuckling at the possibilities.

"Chad and Vernon [Davis] would have been hilarious!" Robinson tweeted.

Indeed. If Davis had problems with Crabtree's approach last summer, and he famously did, imagine the possibilities with Ochocinco.
