As part of honoring him, Ochocinco wore Henry's No. 15 to practice Thursday. And even though the NFL told Chad that he couldn't don the jersey for this weekend's game, according to FootballNewsNow.com, which sat through more than an hour of Ochocinco's Ustream, he's apparently planning to do it anyway*.
If it happens, it won't be the first time the league has fined Chad. In fact, it's become an almost weekly event. More than that, it won't be the first time the league has fined a player for honoring a fallen teammate. Last year, Steelers safety Ryan Clark, who played alongside Sean Taylor in Washington, was docked $5,000 for wearing eye black with Taylor's No. 21 written across it.
As I wrote then, sometimes relaxing the rules makes a lot more sense than proving a point. Although I'm guessing the NFL won't budge should it come to that.
* I'll be honest: I didn't watch.
