For the time being, Chad Johnson (formerly known as Ochocinco... after previously being known as Johnson) does not belong to an NFL team. Therefore, The six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver couldn't find himself in the Madden 2013 video game.
Based on a screenshot supposed from the game that Deadspin received, Johnson can be found in Madden 2013 in the free agency pool. Perhaps Johnson didn't have to create himself. Of course, building a player in Madden will likely prove easier than finding a new NFL team for the verbose veteran.
The cover star of the latest edition of the popular game is another wide receiver, Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions. Whether or not Johnson is an active player in the game still doesn't change the fact that's he not exactly the first (or even 85th) player one might go and acquire in hopes of beginning a virtual dynasty.
