FOXBORO (CBS) – During the Patriots-Buccaneers game last Thursday, Pats wide receiver Chad Ochocinco took a huge hit from rookie Mason Foster.
It was helmet to helmet and Mason was flagged. But after the game, Ochocinco said it was a good hit and if Mason received a fine, he would pay it.

Mason responded back with a simple, “thanks bruh I appreciate that.”
