Second-year tight end Aaron Hernandez currently wears number 85 for the Pats.

The former Chad Johnson changed his last name to match his number in Cincinnati three years ago.

According to the celebrity web site TMZ, Ochocinco wants to buy 85 from Hernandez and that “no number is too high.”

There’s been no comment yet from Ochocino or Hernandez.

There was an update during the afternoon practice session Friday.
