Chad Ochocinco changing name back to Johnson



ochocinco.Chad Ochocinco is going back to the future. After changing his surname from Johnson to Ochocinco more than two years ago, the Bengals wide receiver is going back to his original name of Johnson. Ochocinco, er, Johnson made the announcement on and then confirmed the change on ESPN's NFL Live. "I've done enough with Ochocinco,'' he said. Meantime, unlike his starting quarterback Carson Palmer, Ochocinco/Johnson said he wants to return to Cincinnati in 2011.

"I don't want to go anywhere," he said. "I love Cincinnati, I love the fans. And, Cincinnati is all I know. That's all I know and I just look forward to next year."
