In a cardboard universe that’s soon to include video trading cards, the answer to this question is “definitely maybe.”

According to a recently-released ESPN.com news item and the following video from the foxsports YouTube channel, the loud-mouthed Bengals receiver started a four-day trial with Major League Soccer team Sporting Kansas City earlier this week. Obviously better known for the other foot-named game, Chad Ochocinco apparently played soccer during his youth — and this tryout could (but likely won’t) spark a new career.

In the case that he just happens to make the roster — and if he’s willing to take a massive salary cut — collectors might just be able to see a different kind of Ochocinco football cards.

Despite the fact that April Fool’s Day is one week from today, the  footage below is very, very real.

    Please God no. MLS is better than this.

    It can only happen if he makes the team! Then he will cramp up and run the wrong play and be out for the season!
