Chad Ochocinco — I Get to Keep My #85

Filed under: Chad Ochocinco, TMZ Sports

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.
