Why was he wearing #5 when that's obviously not a RB's number? Don't care, just wondering.

I don't think anyone on the Titans uses #5 - so yeah he'll be able to keep his college number.

I don't care and it really doesn't matter. Besides I thought mainly kickers wear single numbers.

Grid has it right as for the current rules. WRs changed from 80s only to allowing them to wear 10-19 a couple of years back.

He also has the option of declaring himself a wr and picking a number between 10-19 since rookie wr's are allowed to use those numbers. The no. 5 is out of the question.

He can use #25....Tony Hollings won't be needing it next season.

Reggie Bush doesnt need a number. In fact, reggie bush is so fast, whenever he runs, all of the logos, names, and numbers on the back of his jersey peel off from the sonic force.

I think he wore 11 during mini-camp, just as Andre Johnson wore 15. But when he's not falling off motorcycles, he wears 80.

and when he was at Miami, Andre Johnson wore...#5.

LOL. Reggie prefers single digit numbers. Double digit numbers affect his weight when he's flying over tacklers.

Well, after the whole WR movement where the went to the teens, I would not be suprised if Bush starts the movement for any player to have number they want to wear.

I think he should wear the number 23, 2+3 equals 5 the number he wore in college and highschool; or wear a throw back number like 41.. 4+1 equals 5 "dittio" and plus gale sayers wore the number 40 and 41 would be like Reggie Bush is "one above gale sayers" and the 1 could stand for #1 player drafted over all... :homer:

I could see the number #33 directly under his name but it's already taken. Even #30 is gone, but as long as it's in the 30's it will look right for him. I can't picture anything in the 20's or 40's looking good under his name.

Why was he wearing #5 when that's obviously not a RB's number? Don't care, just wondering.

It's how many games he'll play before he gets hurt
It's how many times he'll get nailed behind LOS every game
It's his draft position
It's that many less $$ by the millions he'll get than VY
It's how many pitches he attempts a season
It's his shoe size
It's how many times he asked PC to put him in the game on 4th and 2
It's how many yds UT had to get for a 1st down when VY ran it in for the winning score

Its how many times he runs circles around the defens before scoring

Morency wants a trade? :shocked:
Sorry should have followed that up with a "thats what I heard." There was some speculation on various sport shows that if we drafted Bush, Morency would want to be traded to a team that he could show case his talents at. If this is true couldnt blame him. Poor guy couldnt get any playing time behind DD and Wells. Really never get to play behind Bush and DD.

34 should be, in my opinion, worn by a great player. Campbell, Hakeem, Ryan. So far the Texans that have had 34 has been a scrub, Mack and now Morency.

If, and I did say if, Bush is as great a player as they are hyping, then yes he should be given such a sacred number. If he is a bust, then he should be stripped of the number have his hand slapped and have to personally apologize to Earl himself for ever thinking he could wear such a number.

But thats my opinion.

He can wear number 5 but he'll have to pay a fine to the league. The Jets will likely pay that fine for him though.

I see a possibility of us movin' to #3
Titans take Leinert / Chow reunited with QB he helped recruit and won a NC with.
Saints take Bush as they pickup Best QB FA available.
We still get Young.

It is not an NFL rule concerning what numbers you have to wear. Alot of WR's wear numbers in the teens, Keshawn Johnson 19, Peerless Price 17, etc.

I doubt there is an option to allow someone to pay a fine and have a uniform that isn't in accordance with the league rules. Remember, this is the same league that wouldn't allow Manning to wear black shoes for a game to honor Unitas or Plummer to wear a Tillman patch to honor his former teammate and friend. I'm sure if he ran out with a #5 there would be a fine, but if it happened again I would imagine something much more severe. They don't like individuality in the NFL.

I remember when Keyshawn came to the league, he would pay a fine before the season started to wear 19. They wanted him to wear a number in the 80s but he paid whatever the fine was 16 times at the beginning of the season. Today, I believe the number 10-19 were added to a recievers options because someone was drafted and all the numbers in the 80s were taken so they expanded the options. As for what they will do today who knows... Then again Reggie Bush is to the NFL what Lebron James was 2 years ago to the NBA; they may let him do what ever he wants.

Thankfully this is the NFL and not the NBA, and all the individualism that has torn the NBA up and such. If a player can pay a fine and keep a number he may do it, but I don't think he really cares what number he has, maybe he'll take #20 since that was Barry Sanders' number and everyone is comparing the two of them for some reason.

If there was just a fine for wearing the wrong number, wouldnt AJ have snatched it up his rookie year and paid the fine? Being as he was #5 in Miami.
