CINCINNATI -- Chad Ochocinco is working on a tweet surprise for the NFL.

The flamboyant receiver promised something new for the Cincinnati Bengals opener Sunday against the Denver Broncos at Paul Brown Stadium. What exactly? He won't say.

Ochocinco stopped posting on his Twitter account last Friday, saying he didn't want to violate the NFL's new rules on what players can say on social networks. The league said players can't use Twitter, Facebook or other networks immediately before or during games.

Ochocinco said on Wednesday that he has read the NFL's restrictions and has discovered loopholes. Until last week, he had been one of the most frequent tweeters among NFL players.
