The Patriots released receiver and six-time Pro Bowl selection Chad Ochocinco on Thursday, Fox News reports. Ochocinco, 34, played in 15 games in his only season with the Patriots. He caught one pass in the Super Bowl as New England lost 21-17 to the New York Giants.

"Thoroughly enjoyed the oppurtunity to play for the 'Patriot' organization… fans were f***ing wicked awesome, I wish all of you the best," Ochocinco, a prolific Twitter presence, tweeted. "I'm healthy n living life, I'll be fine," he wrote, and exercised his sense of humor by changing his job profile to "UNEMPLOYED BLACK GUY."

Ochocinco's agent Drew Rosenhaus said he is "in the process of gauging interest from potential teams."
