Lewis says Bengals won’t trade WR Ochocinco

The name has changed, but the demand for a trade has not.

If it’s April, Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco likely is seeking a trade. But once again, Ochocinco likely will be in Cincinnati after the draft passes.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis told the team’s Web site that he’s growing tired of the trade talk because Ochocinco isn’t going anywhere:

    “I don’t know why people continue with the speculation of moving Chad,” Lewis said. “Many times we’ve reiterated, I don’t know if we’re keeping count on this, Chad’s not getting moved. … I don’t know if any team that goes through a draft doesn’t draft a wideout. I’m sure there will be at least 32 receivers picked in this draft by 32 teams. Chances are we probably take a wideout at some point in the draft.”

Three of our NFL.com experts have the Bengals taking Alabama OT Andre Smith with the No. 6 overall selection in this weekend’s draft.
