In case you haven’t seen it yet, cornerback Jalen Ramsey is officially switching from number 20 to number five ahead of the 2021 season. Earlier this year prior to the NFL approving the expansion of jersey numbers, Ramsey had his eyes on number two. However, veteran Robert Woods had seniority and chose to go back to two since that’s what he wore while in college at USC.

Ramsey wore the number eight while he played at Florida State but inevitably chose to let kicker Matt Gay stay in the number and will continue his NFL career wearing the number five, which is also a pretty sweet number to wear in its’ own right.

What do you all think of the change? How many of you are livid that you now must buy another jersey? Let us know how you’re feeling about this one.

And now for today’s links.
