With the NFL’s new quantity guidelines turning into extra lenient, and EDGE rushers together with linebackers starting to put on extra single digit jerseys, we had been certain to get to a ability place participant being put in a jersey quantity that’s way more befitting of a participant a lot larger than him.
New Detroit Lions QB Teddy Bridgewater has simply crossed that lexicon, and people it’s extra stunning than I imagined.
It appears to be like so goofy, but I truly wish to see a QB put on the quantity 50 in an precise sport. After all, NFL guidelines solely permit QBs in a sport to put on numbers 1-19, however with all the things else turning into extra lax, let Teddy go on the market and sling the ball round sporting 50.
Bridgewater has by no means been one to draw back from norms in relation to QB aesthetics both, rocking the 2 gloves on his arms even again to his time at Louisville. After all he’s the one to put on the quantity 50, it simply feels proper.
Extra QBs ought to put on wonky numbers. The Patriots make all their rookies put on bizarre numbers, and when QB Mac Jones was a rookie, he additionally wore 50.
Mac Jones was given No. 50 to put on in coaching camp.
Yearly, the Patriots give that quantity to their first rookie drafted.
Final night time, Mac returned to 10, his Alabama quantity.
