CINCINNATI -- Oh-oh, Ocho. The Cincinnati Bengals' top receiver has yet another name.


The NFL had agreed to let the player formerly known as Chad Johnson wear his new name on the back of his jersey this season. There's one catch for the receiver: It's not exactly how he wanted it.

Instead of Ocho Cinco, he'll be "Ochocinco" because that's how he wrote it when he submitted his name-change form last August in Florida.

"It's his legal name," AFC information manager Corry Rush said Thursday.

The receiver said last year that he wanted his name to be "Ocho Cinco." Neither he nor his agent returned phone messages Thursday to discuss the name being one word instead of two. Shirts and other gear are selling on his Web site under the "Ocho Cinco" name.


Sorry if repost.

Failed like the hold out.

I am a receiver! Notice me at #2.

But I also agree it was granted because the NFL has more expensive lawyers and made it happen. So nice jerseys.

GFudge em all.

Just maybe I am jealous?

But it about me I say!
