CINCINNATI — Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco is putting his unusual name back in the news.
Ochocinco suggested at the end of an interview with ESPN on Tuesday that he’s planning to change his name back to Johnson. He didn’t give a specific reason, other than saying he’s “done enough with the Ocho thing.”
He has talked about changing his name several times. Leading up to a game against the Jets during the 2009 season, he insisted that he would change his name back to Johnson if cornerback Darrelle Revis shut him down.
Ochocinco failed to catch a pass, but kept his name. He later said his comments were made in fun and he was never serious about a name change.
