The trade was first reported by ESPN.

It was not known what the Patriots gave the Bengals.

The only thing Ochocinco, who seems to live on Twitter, has tweeted Thursday that might be a reference to the deal is "God is so Good."

Ochocinco provides another option for Tom Brady, who has been without a deep target since the Patriots traded Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings last season. In 10 seasons, all with the Bengals, Ochocinco has 751 catches for 10,783 yards and 66 touchdowns. He has made the Pro Bowl six times.
