    Joe: doesn’t the NFL requires linebackers to have numbers in the 50s?

    I can’t recall but seems like Jermaine Phillips would have to change numbers before the start of the season.

  2. Joe Says:


    Joe believes you are correct. For example, you didn’t see LaVar Arrington wear his Penn State number (No. 11) with the Redskins.

    Thanks to Tanard, he won’t have to worry about that now, will he?
