Using a highly sophisticated super-smart keyword search of Chad Ochocinco's Twitter account, Jerry McDonald has surfaced a rumor that may have some legs: number 85 could -- and would -- play for the Oakland Raiders.

Inside the Oakland Raiders posted the thought from the veteran NFL writer with some germane comments from Ochocinco, specifically about new head coach Hue Jackson:

I would not care where Hue Jackson got a job. I would go play for him, run through a wall, jump in front of a bus, etc. u get the point.

Man that was the greatest coach I ever had. Hue Jackson would choke me out, cuss me out, just to make sure I was precise on everything.

It would be refreshing to be with Hue Jackson again. I know I wouldn’t have to worry about being thrown under a bus again.

Of course, Ochocinco did mention he'd like to play for the New England Patriots -- but maybe that playoff loss to the NY Jets will play a hand.

Either way, if Marvin Lewis is successful in chasing Chad out of Cincinnati, then maybe the Bay beckons the veteran wideout, after all.

And Darrius Heyward-Bey had be ready to part with jersey number 85.
