USA Today's The Huddle blog says the wide receiver "reclaimed his given name in a Fort Lauderdale courthouse Monday." Now, the blog wonders, will he regain his form? It picked apart his average season numbers:
— "As Chad Johnson (7 seasons): 80 rec., 1,195 yards, 7 TDs."
According to NFL.com, it cost Ochocinco ... er, Johnson ... cuatrocientos un dolar ($401) to become himself again. By the way, NFL.com hasn't totally caught up with the news yet. There's no "Chad Johnson" in its player archives at this moment. But "Chad Ochocinco" is there.
