St. Louis Rams rookie jersey numbers announced

The St. Louis Rams 2011 draft class now have uniform numbers. Of course, they can't pick up a jersey or any other piece of team equipment that has those numbers on them because of the lockout. Details, details. Here are the new uniform numbers for all eight players.

  • DE Robert Quinn - 94
  • TE Lance Kendricks - 88
  • WR Austin Pettis - 83
  • WR Greg Salas - 87
  • S Jermale Hines - 21
  • CB Mikail Baker - 41
  • LB Jabara Williams - 52
  • S Jonathan Nelson - 26

Biggest shoes to fill: Jermale Hines inherits Oshiomogho Atogwe's old uniform number. Atogwe, a team captain, left for Washington in free agency this year after the Rams declined to pick up an pricey contract. Spagnuolo's defenses are known for not over-valuing safeties. Surely giving a fifth-round pick Atogwe's old number isn't any sort of statement?

Avoid the last guy's fate: Nelson has Tye Hill's old number. Fortunately, he doesn't have very far to go to contribute more than Hill did during his time with the Rams.
