NFL star to trial with Kansas City MLS team

NFL star to trial with Kansas City MLS team

Wide receiver Chad Ochocinco is using the NFL lockout to see if he can play for Major League Soccer side Kansas City.
Never short on publicity-grabbing ideas, the Cincinnati Bengals player is set for a four-day trial starting on Tuesday.
The club says on Wednesday that after the tryout, it will determine whether to extend the trial. Ochocinco grew up playing football and remains a big fan.
Kansas City manager Peter Vermes says "we're excited to see how his skills will translate."
Ochocinco says he's "excited to be able to follow my childhood dream."
The reality TV star is friends with the likes of Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ronaldinho.
