It appears fans will finally get to see #85 for the first time tomorrow night when the Patriots play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their second preseason game.

Chad Ochocinco Tweeted a few minutes ago that he's ready to "spread his wings" with his new team.

"Kind sir my wings will b spread,feels like the 1st day of school a little," replied the receiver to a fan who questioned whether or not he'll play.

Neither Ochocinco or Tom Brady played in the Patriots first game against Jacksonville, but it appears that we'll see his debut this week.
