Thumbnail image for chad-ochocinco-ponho-sombrero.JPGCincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco was named to the AFC Pro Bowl team today as a replacement for injured Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker.

The honor comes after the often-verbose pass-catching and Twitter enthusiast was shut down by Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis two straight weeks.

Ochocinco hauled in 72 catches for 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns this season.

Immediately after being named to the team, Ochocinco challenged Titans running back Chris Johnson to a footrace.

"Bruh im going to the pro bowl with you, you want to race for game checks, loser gives the money to those n HAITI n need," Ochocinco said.

Johnson, as of now, has yet to agree to this idea. He is, however, pointing out he's a lot faster than his challenger.

Still, that hasn't stopped the Twitter train from Ochocinco's mobile device. He told ESPN analyst Adam Schefter that the race was on, for what that's worth.
