Jabrill Peppers got his number from college?
Now that the NFL has approved skilled position players to wear numbers 1-49, New York Giants safety Jabrill Peppers has been trying tp pry away the number five from his teammate, kicker Graham Gano.
On Tuesday, Peppers’ agent posted a photo on Instagram with him wearing the number five. Does this mean he got the number?
If I were to make a guess, I would say that Peppers will get the number five from Gano. But right now, looking at the Giants’ roster, Gano still owns the number. If something does get done, I think Peppers will have to pay a hefty price for the number.
Aside from paying Gano, Peppers will have to buy all of the jerseys that Nike has made that haven’t sold yet. This is a big reason why I don’t expect a lot of current NFL players to switch numbers right now. The number change is great for rookies coming into the league.
