Bengals putting Ocho Cinco on No. 85 jersey

CINCINNATI -- Chad Johnson is no more. It's officially Chad Ocho Cinco in the NFL.
The Cincinnati Bengals announced Thursday that they have begun "the process of listing the former Chad Johnson as Chad Ocho Cinco for all club business, per the legal change of his surname effected in Florida.

"The list of appropriate changes will include Ocho Cinco wearing his new surname on the back of his jersey for Sunday's season opener at Baltimore."

Ocho Cinco officially changed his name to Chad Javon Ocho Cinco in Broward County, Fla., last week. The league had not changed his name on their Web site or the team's Web site.

"It's something I don't think anyone has ever done before," the Pro Bowl receiver told the Bengals' Web site last week. "Have I ever had a reason for why I do what I do? I'm having fun."

Two years ago, Johnson gave himself the moniker in reference to his uniform number 85 -- Ocho Cinco means "eight five" in Spanish -- and put it on the back of his uniform before a game. Quarterback Carson Palmer ripped it off before the kickoff. After the season, coach Marvin Lewis -- who dislikes Johnson's attention-getting stunts -- referred to the receiver as "Ocho Psycho."

The receiver asked the media to start calling him by his new name this week. The Bengals couldn't change the name on his uniform until the NFL gave permission.
In an e-mail to The Associated Press on Thursday, league spokesman Greg Aiello said simply: "It's his legal surname."

The receiver has declined to talk about the motivation for his attention-getting change. Lewis said the receiver had been considering it since last March.
Johnson has been a concern for the Bengals this season. He unsuccessfully lobbied for a trade in the offseason, threatening to sit out if he didn't get his way. When the Bengals refused, he relented and showed up for minicamp, but complained that his right ankle was bothering him.

He had bone spurs removed from the ankle and was limited at the start of training camp. In the second preseason game, he landed awkwardly and temporarily dislocated his left shoulder. Johnson is wearing a harness and expects to play in the season opener against Baltimore on Sunday.

Information from The Associated Press is included in this report

While I think it is a little funny, he is a joke to the NFL.

Well...., Ocho Cinco still carries the stats of the WR formerly known as Mr. Johnson and that dude hasn't caught a TD pass in the city of Pittsburgh since about "Ocho Cinco" games ago. :chuckle: :tt02:

hmmmmmm.........I guess I win that bet.

I guy at work bet me during the summer that Chad Johnson would indeed be a Bengal and would catch a pass in the first game.

There is no Chad Johnson on the Bengals roster. :chuckle:

Chad Eight Five is nothing more than a clown. He's a traveling showman masquerading as a NFL WR.

All of that aside...it's going to be funny as hell to listen to the announcers call Bengals games and have to use that name. :chuckle: I'll bet some refuse to do it, though.

What's funny is that Scott Stuart pointed out the incorrect combination of words and that ocho cinco is only 8-5, not 85.

You stay dumb Chad.

I see him walking out on th field with "Johnson" on his jersey. Then Carson pulls it off to reveal "Ocho Cinco", Chad gets fined, and all is status quo in Bungleland. :sofunny:

He's like a side show freak at the carnival. Even bungler fans are growing tired of his bullsh!t. The only good thing about Chad is that its just a matter of time until he fades away into obscurity.

:toofunny::toofunny::toofunny: Nice.


In all honesty, I find him having 'Ocho Cinco' on his back pretty fricking hilarious. Usually I despise the things Chad does, but i have to admit I think this is pretty funny.

While I think it is a little funny, he is a joke to the NFL.

It's funny like a sexually transmitted disease and a joke like the looting of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. And just like both America takes them up in the ***.
