NFL: Ochocinco wants to get his kicks in Pro Bowl


Associated Press

CINCINNATI (AP) Chad Ochocinco wants to show a Pro Bowl audience that he can kick it as well as catch it.

The Bengals receiver did some kickoffs Thursday during practice for the Pro Bowl in Miami, hoping to convince the coaches that he's capable of going toe-to-toe in the all-star game.

Ochocinco told The Associated Press in a phone interview after practice that he's planning to kick field goals during practice on Friday. He's hoping to persuade AFC coaches that he could be more than a just receiver during the game on Sunday.

Ochocinco kicked an extra point and had a kickoff during a preseason game for the Bengals this season.
