According to the official twitter account of Chad Ochocinco, the former Bengal and franchise leader in nearly ever receiving category will be officially changing his name back to Chad Johnson. Chad legally changed his name to Chad Javon Ochocinco on August 29, 2008. In his four season as Chad Ochocinco, he’s caught only 18 touchdowns(less than 5 per season) and only gone over 1,000 receiving yards once. In seven seasons as Chad Johnson, he went over 1,000 receiving yards six times and in those six seasons caught 48 TD’s(8 per season). Hopefully Chad can rekindle his old Johnson, though I wouldn’t count on it.
