Ocho Cinco and Johnson grew up in Miami and have trained together there in the offseason for the last 10 years. Despite Ocho Cinco’s flamboyant demeanor and Johnson’s soft-spoken nature, the two have long been good friends.

“That’s my boy right there,” Ocho Cinco said. “I love ‘Dre to death. We’ve been friends for a long time. We’re always together in the offseason.

“We’re always together, and I’m always making jokes about football. I’m always talking trash, but it’s unfortunate this year that it’s not going the way – not just for myself, but for us as a team – the way I want it to. Usually, going against guys like this and being able to play against everybody from Miami, it becomes fun. But we’re 0-7 right now, and that excitement is really not there.”

Still, Ocho Cinco is excited about the numbers Johnson has been putting up this month. In his last three games, Johnson has caught 30 passes for 450 yards and two touchdowns. He leads the league with an average of 104.8 receiving yards a game.

"That’s what you expect out of somebody like that, someone who is really a consistent Pro Bowler year in and year out," Ocho Cinco said. "Maybe he doesn’t make it year in and year out, but he’s a Pro Bowl type of receiver. He can’t be stopped. He’s big. He’s fast. So it’s like you just pick your poison. At some point, he’s going to beat you, regardless of what you try to do.””

Ocho Cinco also praised his former teammate Walter, calling him one of the hardest working receivers in the NFL. Walter played in Cincinnati for three years before signing with Houston.

“Kev’s got some of the most unbelievable teaching from one of the greatest receiving coaches, to me, that I’ve had a chance to deal with, and that was Hugh Jackson when he was here,” Ocho Cinco said. “Not only that, he was able to pick some of the things that T.J. (Houshmandzadeh) and I learned from one of our closest trainers as far as when it comes to playing receiver and running routes.

“And really, taking the skills that Kev learned here with the toughness and all of the pizzazz he already has as a receiver, it’s no surprise he would be the starter on any team he was on opposite of whoever the number one is.”

Just saw this on MSN!

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/8...PHCP&GT1=39002

I forgot about this, he'd have to pay Reebok for all the jersey's they made that said C. Johnson on them if he wanted the change on the jersey. Next season he will sport 'ocho cinco' on the back and Reebock will make those jersey's instead. The league and organization have changed his name on everything b/c he legally changed his name. NFL records, name above locker, etc. However they wouldn't change his jersey b/c of reebock sales.

I understand that, but to me it says a lot about the league that they are so tied into marketing/sales. And I don't really understand how this truly affects Reebock's sales on the jerseys. People who want the C. Johnson jersey would buy it. Those that don't want that one and want the Ocho Cinco jersey will not buy the C. Johnson jersey right now b/c they know it's going to change in a matter of months. Reebock is going to lose $$ either way.

They'll find a way to not lose money. They'll probably just sell the old jerseys to Collector Shops to sell them as memorabilia.

If Reebok would force Keith Rivers to pay 10K to change his number from 58 to 55, they would definitely try to extort millions out of a superstar like Johnson. I think it's baloney because it's not like people would refuse to buy a jersey that says "Ocho Cinco".

Doubtful, they wouldn't want Dreessen to have to change his number. Just kidding. If the Texans are to make any trades after the season I'd think it'd be more towards a NEED position. I think they like AJ and KW as the #1 and #2's.

Hey Chad - 5 catches for 44 yards really is showing up big time. That's one catch and 10 yards better than your TE. Way to go Plinko.
