Star cornerback Darrelle Revis wants colorful wide receiver Chad Ochocinco to join him at the New York Jets, the New York Post reported Monday.

"I want Chad to come here and play for us, to be a Jet," Revis told New York Metro. "I've been in his ear a lot about it ... I think he could do well here. I've been telling him to come here."

The Jets could be in the market for wide receivers, with Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith heading toward free agency in an uncertain NFL labor climate.

Ochocinco is currently with the Bengals but reportedly looking for a way out of Cincinnati.

He also said recently that he thought about returning to his former surname Johnson but changed his mind again.

Revis and Johnson often correspond on Twitter, and the Jets cornerback wore an OCNN T-shirt — for Ochocinco News Network — during Super Bowl Week in Texas.

Ochocinco, who last month expressed a desire to play for Jets coach Rex Ryan, did not comment on it while in Texas for the Super Bowl.

"I cannot speak about that right now," Ochocinco said.

He and Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis seemingly are at odds. The team replaced offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski this offseason.

Ochocinco is under contract with the Bengals through next season, so he would have to be cut or traded to join the Jets. He also has said he wants to join the Patriots.
