Ochocinco -- Happy to Ride the Bench

3/29/2011 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chad Ochocinco better not give up his day job -- because Kansas City's soccer team thinks he's only good enough to be a backup player ... for now.

Chad Ochocinco

Sporting Kansas City of the MLS announced today the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver will be on their reserve team -- which means he CAN train with the team and hang in the locker room ... but does NOT get paid.

Ocho seemed happy about the news ... posting, "Totally awesome ILuvKC" on his Twitter.

At least it'll give him a reason to stay in shape during that damn NFL lockout.

Looks like some people need a computer lesson. Don't type in all caps! There's a button on your keyboard - it's on the left side, and it says "Caps Lock". Press it once and you are now joining the rest of the world.

CANADA or euro and he`s starting everygame with over 200 grando per year.Stayin in the states don`t pay unless you make the cut..but it could make him a star overseas.Sad american football for fattasses small feild and too many players REAL football is over sea`s as american players are roid phattasses and to slow for the bigger feilds and too fat to play offence and defence.Should make all the players play the whole game on both offence and defence play eight players and make the feild HUGE than american REAL football would be alive..it is dead today as too many players and short feilds ruin the american game of football.Roids also make phatasses look strong and fast on little bitty feilds playin for huge money for a few moments on one side of the ball.It FN`ed it all to H when they put on helments and pads.JIM THORPE was a real football STAR

BFD! Ochocinco had better find another gig cause don't any serious football team wants him on their team. I guess the next step is a reality show with his old ass fiance, Evelyn. Both of them are non-relevant factors.
