The wideout formerly known as Chad Johnson, Chad Ochocinco, lost his best friend and Cincy Bengals teammate Chris Henry in a domestic accident yesterday. For more details check out Post 1442...Chris Henry Passes.
Mr. Ochocinco, who normally wears number 85, wore Mr. Henry's 15 jersey in practice yesterday and intends to honour his late friend by wearing it in Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers in SoCal.
Here is where the wicket gets sticky. According to TSN, the NFL has told Mr. Ochocinco that he cannot change uni numbers and that he will be fined heavily if he does so. Mr. Ochocinco, who is quite the iconoclast, says he will wear the number no matter what.
