The five-time Pro Bowler has done a whole lot of goofy stuff in his time in the NFL. Most recently he got a $20,000 fine for trying to bribe a ref with a buck. Of course, the whole name-change thing from Chad Johnson to Chad Ochocinco ranks right up there, too. And there was the race on foot versus a thoroughbred horse that he won back in 2007. (So he was given a 110-yard head start.)
But this one takes the cake on pure self-promotion. Ochocinco has recently tweeted an actual mockup of the box his condoms would come in.
This all apparently stems from Ochocinco joking about creating condoms under his name earlier this year on HBO.
