Chad Ochocinco, the 33-year-old Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver, announced he will be legally changing back to his original surname, Johnson.
“I don’t have a choice right now,” Ochocinco said during an interview with ESPN’S NFL Live on Tuesday.. “I’ve done enough with the Ocho thing.”
In 2008, Ochocinco had his surname legally changed from Johnson to Ochocinco to reflect his No. 85 jersey.
The name change has not been made legal yet, but Ochocinco says the plans are well underway.
