Chad Ochocinco may have made his name as a prolific wide receiver in the NFL, but now he's taking his talents to a different league and a new position.

The six-time NFL Pro Bowler tweeted Tuesday that he has a tryout for a kicking position with an XFL team that "presented itself." He followed that up by noting that he was "excited as hell" and that "being able to compete for a spot at a entirely different position will be so riveting" regardless of whether or not he's actually successful.

As it turns out, the 42-year-old has some unofficial experience as a kicker. In an appearance on Bleacher Report's "Gameday Gameshow," Ochocinco drilled a 60-yard field goal to help a contestant win a bet. With some practice, it's not hard to imagine the Cincinnati Bengals great finding a second round of football success through his powerful boot.

Check out a video of the 60-yard shot below:

Ochocinco did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
