It’s less than two months before the Patriots-Bengals regular-season opener ‘€” Sept. 12, to be exact ‘€” but it’s never too early for Chad Ochocinco.

In the wake of LeBron James‘ decision to sign with the Miami Heat on Thursday night, the Cincinnati wide receiver took a shot at Patriots’ cornerback Leigh Bodden, tweeting: ‘€œLebron went to the #HEAT, now its football time, @leighbodden its you and the #Patriots ass week 1.’€ Bodden, who has previously exchanged in a little back-and-forth with Ochocinco, replied: ‘€œLebron had to Leave Cleveland to win and so did I so Week 1 #23 will #HEATITUP so @OGOchoCinco u better be ready.’€

It marks the second time in less than a month that Bodden and Ochocinco have engaged in a little Twitter trash talk. On July 1, the two had a Twitter conversation that culminated with Ochocinco asking Bodden: ‘€œDoes it frustrate to train so hard and still #fail when trying to stop me, even with safety help every play #justaskin.’€ Bodden responded: ‘€œIt frustrates me when I work so hard & #succeed vs U. Sometimes I feel bad cuz ur such a great guy. #Itsjustbusinesstho.’€
