Chad, What’s Your Real Name?

Chad Ocho CincoChad Johnson has changed his name, but his jersey remained the same Sunday.

The Cincinnati Bengals receiver legally changed his name from Chad Johnson to Chad Ocho Cinco, but the NFL decided against allowing him to put his name on his jersey.

“While the NFL has recognized the legal name change of Chad Johnson to Chad Ocho Cinco, the league informed the Bengals today that certain issues remain to be resolved before Ocho Cinco will be permitted to wear his new surname on his jersey,” the league said in a statement.

“He will wear the name Johnson on his jersey today and will be referred to as Chad Johnson on the official play-by-play sheet,” the statement said. “Further questions should be directed to the league office.”

This guy is one classic cat! If anyone out there is looking for ideas to spread there name, just do what Chad Ocho Cinco does.  I mean look at all the publicity he is getting along with his team, this is a marketing dream.  He doesn’t even need to perform on the field, whatever he does off the field gets more attention anyways.
