CINCINNATI -- Maybe receiver Chad Johnson can go by the name that his head coach hates.

The Cincinnati Bengals receiver has legally changed his name to Chad Javon Ocho Cinco in Broward County, Fla., a switch that became official this week. Johnson, who lives in Miami, didn't return a message left on his cell phone Friday night.

"It's something I don't think anyone has ever done before," he told the team's Web site. "Have I ever had a reason 4 why I do what I do? I'm having fun."

Two years ago, Johnson gave himself the moniker -- a reference in Spanish to his No. 85 -- and put it on the back of his uniform before a game. Quarterback Carson Palmer ripped it off before the kickoff. After the season, coach Marvin Lewis -- who dislikes Johnson's attention-getting stunts -- referred to the receiver as "Ocho Psycho."

Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the Bengals had no comment on the matter.

Johnson has been a concern 4 the Bengals this season. He unsuccessfully lobbied 4 a trade in the offseason, threatening to sit out if he didn't get his way. When the Bengals refused, he relented and showed up 4 minicamp, but complained that his right ankle was bothering him.

He had bone spurs removed from the ankle and was limited at the start of training camp. In the second preseason game, he landed awkwardly and temporarily dislocated his left shoulder. Johnson is wearing a harness and expects to play in the season opener against Baltimore.

I thought it was good as a nickname. Now it's "Oh, Chad Ocho Cinco has had a great year." His name in Madden 2010 will be C.Ocho Cinco. The guy usually makes me laugh, but I don't think this is funny at all. Just sounds stupid if a spanish number is his name. But that's just my opinion.

Ocho Cinco means eight five, not eighty five. I didn't think it was possible, but my estimation of his intellect has dropped even further.

GoPack1984 (10m) : ...with the current defense.
GoPack1984 (10m) : Good season. Great rebound from 4-6. Would have loved to have seen them go to the Super Bowl and win, but I don't know if that was realistic

Nonstopdrivel (36m) : ndedly fill in all the holes on the roster.
Nonstopdrivel (42m) : I do get the same sort of complacent vibe from the Packers front office that cost Bill Polian his job. You can't rely on the QB to single-ha
The_Green_Ninja (56m) : Thomas Brady has been given tools his whole career. It's up to the Packers to start doing the same.
The_Green_Ninja (56m) : As much as I loved brett, Aaron is right. We need more tools and HE is the QB that deserves the tools
shield4life (58m) : & management
shield4life (58m) : Blame the coaching
The_Green_Ninja (59m) : This is near the same time Brett started saying the same stuff.
uffda udfa (1h) : That is exactly what Aaron is saying. We don't do what needs to be done to win. Same song over and over.
uffda udfa (1h) : Aaron is a troll and a hater and doesn't understand the game. Who is he to say such things?
Zero2Cool (1h) : Probably reading into it wrong, but I think he's saying to front office. Do. More!
Zero2Cool (1h) : Rodgers says "We just gotta make sure we're going all-in every year to win....we can take a big step this off-season"
