 BALTIMORE (AP) -Chad Johnson has changed his name, but his jersey remained the same Sunday.
The Cincinnati Bengals receiver legally changed his name from Chad Johnson to Chad Ocho Cinco, but the NFL decided against allowing him to put his name on his jersey.
``While the NFL has recognized the legal name change of Chad Johnson to Chad Ocho Cinco, the league informed the Bengals today that certain issues remain to be resolved before Ocho Cinco will be permitted to wear his new surname on his jersey,'' the league said in a statement.
``He will wear the name Johnson on his jersey today and will be referred to as Chad Johnson on the official play-by-play sheet,'' the statement said. ``Further questions should be directed to the league office.''
Contacted Sunday by The Associated Press, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said, ``He has a financial obligation to Reebok, which produces the jerseys available to fans. That has to be resolved before the on-field jersey can be changed.
``The same obligation exists for any player that changes his number or name.''
