I'd bet that is more a nod to the year than the number Djax will be. But we'll see...



It said on their twitter post that it's a placeholder number. Official number TBD

I'd take him in the second, honestly. He's an Anquon Boldin clone who as you said, would destroy slot corners.

That probably pushes Hump to number 4, which is fine. And it would make for a great receiving core, where everyone has their own niche. In order.

Evans - Does everything well, can run every route, can win jump balls, excellent red zone threat, can win downfield, demands safety help.
Jackson - A speed machine, best deep threat in the NFL, wildly experienced, will run clear out routes for our team to open up underneath coverage, demands safety help.
JJSS - Very physical, great hands, can win contested catches in traffic and keep the chains moving, underrated after the catch, will help spring larger gains in the run and pass games with his excellent blocking, especially on screens.
Hump - Does most of his damage within ten yards of the LoS, great on screens, great short area quickness, can get a step on the defender on short routes consistently, hard worker, good hands.
The Fifth Guy - Hope you like special teams

Pretty well rounded, I'd say.


Corps. ;)

Jackson on if he would be returning kicks and punts: "Whatever [Koetter] wants me to do on this team, I'll do it."

Hump is going to 10. DeSean is making a donation to a children's charity in Tampa in exchange for the number.

Jesus our receiving corps might as well be a QB rotation: 10, 11 and 13. Man that just feels weird

Always found it funny how territorial athletes get over jersey numbers. I understand for star players there is the marketing/branding angle, but honestly, jersey numbers mean absolutely nothing to me. If I seen some 3rd stringer in 99 or 55 for the Bucs I wouldn't blink an eye.

If you have a number publicly associated with you for years, it is easy to start associating with that number, and the thought of changing that number just isn't "you", ya know?

I thought for a second about why Hump wasn't angling for 13 since it's in his Twitter handle. Only for a second.

In the NFL the number may as well be your face. Unlike basketball and baseball, you almost never see a players face unless he's doing commercials. So most fans tend to associate and connect the great play/player with the number. Number 99 for the Bucs, wow! So yeah, you kind of want to keep your face... if any of this makes sense.

Numbers have, and always will, mean something...in every sport..

Football all the more for reasons you just mentioned..

It's a pride/ego thing..

And top dog gets there number of choice...

Time to move on..

Not just public, it's personal. I was partial to my high school number, and I'm pretty sure that I didn't qualify as a public figure.

I'm sure they do. I meant from Humphries' point of view. He has to give up his number, and unless he's got a personal attachment to the particular charity, he gets nothing out of it.
