CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

After some long thought the Browns safety Donte Whitner has decide not to change his name to Donte Hitner. Whitner had considered the name change to strengthen his reputation as a big hitter. 

"I think the majority of people will call me 'Hitner' regardless," Whitner said. Whitner reached out to former NFL ego driven superstar Chad Johnson who also went through a name change naming himself Chad OchoCinco, and Chad expressed the difficulties of name changing. While Whitner won't be hitting anything anytime soon lets hope the Browns hit .500 this season.
