|On Hard Knocks, HBO won’t be getting Rex Ryan circa 2010 — it will instead be getting Chad Ochocinco circa 2009.
The flamboyant wideout, the star of the Bengals’ stint on the popular training camp show three years ago, has signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins, who’ll open their doors in 2012 to the cameras and the microphones.

FF Today's Take: HBO just got its major storyline for "Hard Knocks" and Miami hopes it got its lead receiver for HC Joe Philbin's West Coast offense. Ochocinco will get what might be his final chance to prove he is still a quality NFL receiver with his hometown team. While he stands a good chance at winning a starting job in Miami, he faces long odds in returning to fantasy relevance in 2012 because of the likely chaos at quarterback and his own diminishing ability.
