Chad Johnson has always been viewed as an odd ball for his on the field antics, but his past shenanigans don't compare to what he just did off the field this week.
According to Miami radio station 790 The Ticket, the receiver has legally changed his last name to "Ocho Cinco."
Johnson forewarned the public that a major surprise was coming during a recent interview with Chris McKendry on ESPN's SportsCenter & he couldn't have been more correct.
Ocho Cinco, The Wide Receiver Formerly known as Chad Johnson, has always wanted to wear his nickname on the back of his Jersey, but the National Football League wouldn't allow it without fining the Prima donna receiver.
Johnson started a buzz in Cincinnati during the off season by requesting a trade because he didn't feel enough love from Carson Palmer & The Bengals organization. Ocho Cinco, loves the lime light and will do anything he can to make sure he's a highlight on ESPN and in the public eye!
I can't help, but to ask myself if he's a genius who will be able to make millions marketing his own brand identity or has he gone completely mad like Mike Tyson did when he tattooed a tribal scribe on his face to look more intimidating in the ring?
Whatever it is, Ocho Cinco has sent shockwaves around the football world with his unpredictable behavior once again & I'm even happier with myself that I drafted him on my fantasy football team this 2008 season!
