Default Chad Ochocinco Plans To Wear 15 Edit: He won't

Quote:
The NFL has a long history of strictly enforcing its encyclopedia of rules, so this situation is worth watching. In the wake of Chris Henry's death, fellow Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco plans to wear Henry's number 15 jersey on Sunday. This, of course, is a violation of NFL rules. Pro Football Talk asked league spokesman Greg Aiello if he has anything to say in response.

Said Aiello via e-mail, "No."

Whether the league has a response if Ochocinco shows up wearing No. 15 on Sunday remains to be seen.

A response as curt as this one suggests to me that the NFL isn't really sure how to react to this. On one hand, Ochocinco's proposed gesture is sincere, tasteful, and honorable, and fans of any stripe will surely appreciate it. On the other hand, rules!. Something has to give.

and apparently someone in the comments said
"NFLPA will cover any fine levied on Chad imposed by the league and match it with a gift to our Chris Henry memorial fund" his source was twitter though so I'll believe the idea but don't really think they are allowed to make comments like that.

Edit: for Posterize246 quick response

In texts sent to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Sunday morning, Ochocinco said he didn't want what would have been a tribute to his former teammate, who passed away Thursday, to become a diversion.

"It's becoming more of a distraction for myself and my team," Ochocinco texted. "Chris wouldn't want it to go the way it is.

"It can turn into a big negative if we don't perform the way we should. I'll have his jersey in hand throughout the entire game. His jersey is also 4 times bigger than my normal one."

Ochocinco had considered donning Henry's jersey, but league rules prohibit it.
