Tonight we pass along a rather….odd story, to say the least. In the state of Ohio, we’ve already witnessed Chad Johnson’s famous name change from Johnson to “Ochocinco,” his nickname and jersey number. Now, after receiving multiple disciplinary measures for illegal hits in recent memory, former Buckeye and current San Francisco 49er Donte Whitner has dropped the “W” from his last name to become “Donte Hitner.”

Here’s a full article on the matter: http://www.49ers.com/news/article-3/Donte-Whitner-to-Become-Donte-Hitner/54c30dcc-d126-4683-b77d-b268aee2dc82
