Chad Ochocinco, Sporting KC Tryout Will Continue Into Next Week

The Chad Ochocinco experiment will continue through Monday. 

On Thursday night, a Sporting Kansas City assistant coach told me that they expected to keep Ochocinco in town on tryout through Monday or Tuesday. Ochocinco confirmed that news via Twitter on Friday morning.

I've been asked to stay through at least Monday to play in the reserve game for further evaluation by coach Vermes

Interesting. The assistant coach said Ochocinco is humble on the soccer field and very coachable. He says Ochocinco has obviously been away from the game for a while but he has the necessary work ethic. 

Whether that turns into a new summer job for Ochocinco during the NFL lockout is another thing. But it's a start.
