CINCINNATI (AP) -- Chad Ochocinco is used to making news. Now, he's going to try to break some.
The Cincinnati Bengals receiver said he's planning to form his own social news network on Twitter, using his player contacts around the league to break news about other teams.
He's doing it as part of his partnership with Motorola, using its smart phone technology.
The receiver has dubbed his venture OCNN, for the Ochocinco News Network. He says he'll be competing with mainstream media to tell fans what's going on.
He'll have to make sure not to run afoul of head coaches, who like to keep a lid on news.
