Chad Ochocinco

I GET TO KEEP #85

7/30/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chad Ochocinco is whole again -- because Aaron Hernandez relinquished his number 85 ... FOR FREE.

Ocho (seen above at practice yesterday) was willing to fork over some bucks for the number, but Hernandez did him a solid as a "welcome to the team" gesture. Hernandez told reporters, "Chad Ochocinco came to the team and he’s a great player and I had a chance to get my college number back and he obviously wanted 85, and it wasn’t a problem."

Ochocinco joked that he would let Hernandez drive his Toyota Prius on weekends ... and might toss a few McDonald's coupons in.

I'm just glad he's gone from my town. What can I say, the Bengals lead the league... in arrests.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Of course he wants that number. He'd look even more stupid if he wore a different number than his last name, eh?(?!?)

Chad Ochodoucheo will be fired AGAIN. Within 2 years of NFL retirement he will be broke, arrested and blaming everyone but himself. I'll be sure to wave at him as he is standing in the unemployment line.
