DULUTH, Ga. – Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco has a good amount of free time on his hands during the current NFL Lockout.

Earlier this year he had a tryout with Sporting Kansas City of Major League Soccer, and now has accepted a challenge from Professional Bull Riders chief operating officer Sean Gleason to ride a bull at the LucasOil Invitational this weekend in Duluth.

Ochocinco will earn $10,000 if he rides a bull. If he can stay aboard for the required eight seconds, the PBR will give Ochocinco a new Ford F-150, as well as allow him to rename the bull.

Gleason says Ochocinco is “a gifted athlete, but bull riding is a much different sport and climbing on the back of a bull in the chutes takes a little more than Twitter confidence, let alone calling for the gate [to open].”
