Perhaps aware he’s likely reached a stage in his NFL career when he’ll no longer be able to choose his uniform number, Chad Ochocinco is reportedly ready to once again be known as Chad Johnson. According to TMZ.com, Ochocinco is changing back to his birth name in time for his wedding this summer — “because he doesn’t want his wife to have a made-up last name.”
There’s a valuable lesson to be learned here; if you’re going to do something drastic make sure you can back it up. Chad Johnson changed his name then disappeared. The guy’s career is over. I don’t blame him for wanting to change his name back. Why would you want to be a nobody with a made-up last name? Great season Chad.. good thing you didn’t change your name to reflect your production the past few seasons or you’d be Chad Nothing.
