Chad Ochocinco To Return To Chad Johnson

Thursday February 9th, 2012

Patriots wide receiver, Chad Ochocinco has announced via twitter that he is planning to change his last name back to Johnson.

Prior to changing his last name to Ochocinco he used his birth name, Johnson for 30 years. He indicated that  Ochocinco was just a temporary name. Many are speculating that this decision was actually a result of his upcoming nuptials with Evelyn Lozada.
