CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Chad Ochocinco says he wants to stay in Cincinnati and has no conflict with Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis.

The 6-time Pro Bowl wide receiver ran routes Friday at UC's Nippert Stadium to stay in shape during the NFL lockout.  After his work out, Chad said he has no gut feeling if the Bengals will keep him for an 11th season or if he'll be cut.  The final year on his contract is a team option that would pay Ochocinco $6 million.

Marvin Lewis publicly ripped his receiver this off-season, Chad retaliated on his Twitter page, but in front of a TV camera, Ochocinco praised his coach and said, "Marvin's been good to me."

Ochocinco also said he next plans to catch and wrestle alligators after team owner Mike Brown joked Chad should wrangle snakes as his next stunt.  Ochocinco has already performed on "Dancing With the Stars" and rode a bull in May.
