Report: Chad Ochocinco Will Change Name Back to Chad Johnson

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - FEBRUARY 05: Chad Ochocinco #85 of the New England Patriots makes a catch against the New York Giants during Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium on February 5, 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Okay, so this isn't really news. Heck, we don't even know if Chad Ochocinco will be back with the Patriots in 2012 (taking a pay cut will probably be the only way). But for those interested, Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco will be changing his name back to Chad Johnson... at least according to a TMZ report:

Say goodbye to Chad Ochocinco ... the Patriots star is telling friends, he plans to change his last name BACK to Johnson in time for his wedding this summer -- because he doesn't want his wife to have a made-up last name.

Ocho's wedding to his "Basketball Wives" fiancee Evelyn Lozada is set for July in Florida -- and sources tell TMZ, the wide receiver plans to legally change his last name back to the one he was born with before he ties the knot.

Umm... cool. I guess. Of course, now that I finally got used to calling him "Ocho" I'll have to go back to calling him by the last name "Johnson." Or maybe I'll just stick to Ocho. Okay, this article has run its course.
