For those of you who have yet to participate in your fantasy football league drafts, make sure you don’t select wide receiver Chad Johnson from the Cincinnati Bengals, because the next owner may draft Chad Ocho Cinco, leaving you with a non-existent player.
Ocho Cinco, formerly known as Chad Johnson, legally changed his last name to Ocho Cinco, the spanish version of his #85 jersey. The NFL has a rule prohibiting players from wearing anything but their last names on the back of their jerseys — and their first initial or name in the event that there are multiple players with the same surname on the roster. And Ocho Cinco, ever the prima donna, wanted to wear his spanish jersey number.
I can’t begin to express my utter disbelief and sadness that Ocho Cinco would actually legally change his name for the express purpose of wearing it on the back of his jersey.
