Default Chad Changing His Name?

As much as I want to hesitate from posting this, here you go. Granted it is from PFT, but I wouldn't put something like this past CJ.

JOHNSON WANTS TO BE OCHO CINCO, LEGALLY
Posted by Michael David Smith on August 12, 2008, 7:24 p.m. EDT

Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson was fined $5,000 for wearing “Ocho Cinco” on the back of his jersey before a game in 2006.

To avoid getting fined, Johnson hasn’t done it since then. But Johnson now has a plan for how he can get away with having “Ocho Cinco” spelled out over the “85″ on his back.

We’ve learned that Johnson has taken the first steps in the state of Florida toward legally changing his last name to Ocho Cinco.

Seriously.

If Johnson follows through on this, his actual, legal name will be Chad Ocho Cinco, and the NFL would then (we assume) allow him to put his new last name on the back of his jersey.

From a business standpoint, this might be Chad’s way of picking up some of the extra cash that he wants to make but that the team has said it won’t give him. The jersey would instantly become one of the NFL’s top sellers, and NFL players get a cut of all sales of their jerseys.

In recent interviews, including one on ESPN Monday night, Johnson has made veiled references about future plans that he has said will change the way fans think about him. This is a strange one, to say the least.

I think a name change to Di ck Head would be more fitting.

I guess "Gold Toofed Bag of Sh$t" won't fit on the back of a jersey.

After watching that preseason game and now this, it's good to know that nothings changed in Cinci.

I cant find a link to the story but I caught an audio snippet (espn radio) on Sportcenter tonight and Chad was talking about his change in attitude since his earlier offseason talk about trades.

He thanked his new change in attitude to his new mentor Ray Lewis.

He also promised something special in celebration when the bengals play the ravens next.

Any suggestions on CJ's new tribute dance in honour of Ray???

There should be some sort of law against the media exploiting retards. Chad can't help himself, but the media should know better than to keep sticking a mic in front of him.

Go ahead and change it. Then it will be even funnier when he gets cut and goes to a team that already has 85 in use and he has to wear a different number
