Time for a jersey number update.
After signing with the Washington Redskins last week, safety D.J. Swearinger displayed his love for the No. 36, paying new teammate Su’a Cravens $75,000 for his jersey digits, according to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.
Cravens will now take No. 30.
Both safeties have professed their admiration for the late Sean Taylor, who wore 21 for the Redskins before his tragic death in 2007. No Washington player has worn 21 since Taylor, but both Cravens and Swearinger coveted 36 because that was Taylor’s number in college.
Head coach Mike McCarthy had said that he was hoping Montgomery would switch to a traditional running back number, but apparently, is not getting his wish.
