Ocho extends olive branch to Bruschi: ‘I love Tedy’

Time to bookend this Chad Ochocinco-Tedy Bruschi affair.

Ochocinco on Friday broke his silence about Bruschi’s radio tirade, in which the former┬áPatriots linebacker came down on the wideout for his tweets following and lack of production during the Patriots’ 38-24 win over the Dolphins on Monday.

“I love Tedy,” Ocho told ComcastSports New England.

Ocho said he’s done talking to the media until he’s mastered New England’s Russian novel of a playbook. He emphasized his determination to become a productive cog in the Patriots’ attack before he says another word.

Whether or not he’s been pressed into silence by Foxborough’s powers that be, it’s a sign that Chad is listening — that he wants to go to work. While outsiders dump on Ocho, those inside the locker room — namely Tom Brady — have praised his efforts.

For a player who’s largely stayed out of trouble and, more often than not, met his critics with an open mind — is it time to give Ochocinco a break?
