Former Bengals and Patriots wide receiver Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson wants to be part of the rebooted XFL – as a kicker.

On Tuesday, Johnson tweeted “The opportunity to kick in the XFL has presented itself, i must tryout Monday in Houston”.  The 42-year-old added that he’s “excited as hell” about the opportunity

Johnson actually does have some kicking experience – he once handled a kickoff and a successful extra point attempt during a Bengals preseason game, and last month he posted an Instagram video where he nails a 60-yard field goal on a practice field.
