Chad Johnson is one of the most colorful characters the NFL has ever seen, and he backed it up with his play. He racked up over 11,000 yards in the NFL, earning first-team All-Pro honors twice before changing his named to Chad Ochocinco ahead of the 2008 season.

During the Ochocinco era, he did more than just catch passes too. In a 2009 preseason game he took over kicking duties for injured Cincinnati Bengals kicker Shayne Graham, and the results were actually pretty good.

Not bad at all. His form looks a little awkward, but that thing was dead-center and had plenty of height and distance to it. It's not a huge surprise that he can kick, though, having been a soccer player in his youth and even making a couple appearances in various pro soccer leagues.

Bengals fans sometimes got tired of Johnson's antics as his play started to deteriorate late in his career, but there's no denying that he was one of the league's best wide receivers in his prime, and he's clearly an elite all-around athlete.
