  • MIAMI (AP) — Chad Ochocinco is officially no more. The Miami Dolphins wide receiver has changed his name back to the original Chad Johnson.

    Johnson legally changed his name Monday in an appearance at the Broward County Courthouse. The change he announced via Twitter quickly follows his July Fourth marriage to Evelyn Lozada of TV's "Basketball Wives" fame.

    Johnson was known as "Ochocinco" for the past four seasons. The name was a playful reference to the No. 85 he wore on his jersey.

    Johnson was a six-time Pro Bowl receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals. He signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins earlier this year after being cut by the New England Patriots.

    For his NFL career, Johnson has 766 receptions for 11,059 yards and 67 touchdowns.
