CHAD OCHO CINCO

Genius! Darren Rovell of CNBC has come up with another NFL business story. He says the dispute between Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ocho Cinco (Johnson) and jersey company Reebok could be settled. For a price.

Rovell says Reebok estimates it will be stuck with as many as 100,000 “Johnson 85” jerseys if the receiver changes his uniform. Rovell says that’s about $4 million dollars in inventory and if Johnson were willing to cut Reebok a check, they would give up the “Ocho Cinco” jersey. Or, as the¬†Yahoo! Sports football blog pointed out, Ocho Cinco might need to come up with $50 million pesos.¬†Figures by other media outlets later in the day put Reebok’s costs for the jerseys at closer to $800,000.

Profootballtalk.com says Johnson has already planned to use the Ocho Cinco name as a “one season stunt.” The site claims the receiver will change his name back to “Johnson” for the 2009 season. They theorize this may be a way to reslove the dispute with Reebok. The Johnson jerseys would simply go back on sale affter one year.
