Chris Henry changes name to Chad Johnson

CINCINNATI - Following the Chad Jonson's widely reported name change to Ocho Cinco, Cincinnati Bengal Wide Receiver Chris Henry announced he has taken steps to legally change his name to Chad Johnson.

During a press conference at Paul Brown Stadium, Henry said, "My name has been associated with so much controversy.  As soon as the name Chad Johnson became available I decided this was my chance to upgrade my image and to get a clean start.  The name Chad Johnson is not a stretch for me because I am a Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver just like the former Chad Johnson.  I hope many fans of the former Chad Johnson will begin to accept me as their own."   

Ocho Cinco told reporters he is happy his former name has found a way to live on within the Bengals organization.

Reportedly, an inmate at the Hamilton County Jail has filed paperwork to legally change his name to Chris Henry.  Steven Phillips, who is serving an 11 year sentence for several gun felonies and domestic violence convictions, feels changing his name to Chris Henry is his chance to upgrade his image and to get a clean start.
