Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson has made the news again. This time it is not for his antics, but for legally changing his name to Chad Javon Ocho Cinco in Broward County, Fla. according to several media outlets.
Johnson, who lives in Miami, adopted the name ‘Ocho Cinco’ two years ago. The name refers to his jersey No. 85 in Spanish. On the team’s Web site, he offered an explanation for the change.
“It’s something I don’t think anyone has ever done before,” he said. “Have I ever had a reason for why I do what I do? I’m having fun.”
During the preseason, Johnson had bone spurs removed from his ankle and has been limited on the field. However, He is expected to be ready for the season opener against Baltimore.
