Chad Ochocinco, is going to have to find another day job. The wide receiver has been dropped by the New England Patriots after only one season with the team. Being that he only caught 15 passes during the season, the firing was likely performance based.

Ocho took to Twitter to express his gratitude for the Patriots, who lost this year’s Super Bowl.  “Thoroughly enjoyed the oppurtunity to play for the ‘Patriot’ organization … fans were f***ing wicked awesome, I wish all of you the best,” he tweeted to his more than 3 million followers. The  Miami native’s fiancée, reality star and role-model (according to Vibe Magazine) Evelyn Lozada jokingly tweeted that she would take care of the 34-year-old. “Aww baby you got cut @ochocinco I got your back! I’m the bread winner now, which means I make the rules! #Boom,” she wrote.

His firing comes on the heels of  friend, Terrell Owens, getting the pink-slip from his Indoor Football League team, the Allen Wranglers. Both men also had ill-fated reality shows on VH1.

The struggle is real.
