(MIAMI) — Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Ochocinco changed his name back to his birth name, Chad Johnson, on Monday.
The 34-year-old Johnson made the change because his new wife, Evelyn Lozada, didn’t want to have the last name of Ochocinco, according to OCNNReport.com.
Johnson changed his last name to Ochocinco in August 2008 as an ode to his No. 85 uniform number.
