Bengals Giving Away Chad Merchandise – A Clue to His Future?

From: Pro Football

The Bengals are engaged in an online promotion that might or might not provide a clue about the future of receiver Chad Johnson a/k/a Chad Ocho Cinco.

For every $50 spent via the team’s pro shop, the buyer will receive a free No. 85 jersey, with either ”C. Johnson” or “Ocho Cinco” on the name plate.

At first, we thought that it was a way for the team to clear out the “C. Johnson” merchandise, so that Johnson can officially become “Ocho Cinco” in ‘09.

The fact that either jersey is available makes less sense, especially since it’s our understanding the Reebok opted not to go forward with the production of “Ocho Cinco” shirts given the existing inventory of “C. Johnson” jerseys — unless Johnson bought roughly $800,000 worth of “C. Johnson” shirts.

Though the whole thing is confusing to us, we don’t think it means that the team is clearing out any and all Johnson/Cinco jerseys in advance of a divorce with the mercurial wideout.

Then again, these are the Bengals we’re talking about.
