Jabrill Peppers will be sticking with 21
Earlier in the offseason, New York Giants’ safety Jabrill Peppers made it clear on social media that he would love to change his jersey numbers from 21 to five if the league was going to approve a new rule allowing skilled position players to wear the numbers 1-19.
Well the approval came and Peppers can now wear five if he wants. The only problem is that kicker Graham Gano has been wearing five and would have to agree to give up the number.
While talking to the media on Wednesday, Peppers indicated that Gano’s asking price for the number is way to high.
Peppers wore five at Michigan which is why he was interested in making the switch.
Peppers was also asked about the Giants having so many safeties. He replied by saying that it makes sense under defensive coordinator Patrick Graham.
Peppers also sounds very excited about the potential of the Giants’ defense and he should with how well they played last season despite having some glaring holes.
