Donte Whitner's name change
Donte Whitner is going the way of Chad Johnson by changing his name -- only the change is much less dramatic than the former Ochocinco's ever was. Whitner is simply dropping the "W" from his name, making him Donte Hitner. Whitner (the name change hasn't officially gone through yet, so we can refer to him by his original name) will be required to purchase all of his unsold jerseys, but it might be worth the financial hit -- if people actually end up liking his new name, of course.
