Robert Griffin III Won’t Change From Jersey #10

Robert Griffin III

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will not change jersey numbers. DeSean Jackson will, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Amazingly, one of the hottest topics of debate among Redskins fans in response to Jackson joining the team centered not on the former Eagle’s impact on the locker room, or how he would mesh with his new pass-catching teammates. It was all about the No. 10.

Jackson for the first six years of his NFL career sported that jersey number. But the Redskins already have a pretty popular player who wears the No. 10.

Asked during his conference call with the media yesterday, Jackson semi-jokingly said that maybe he could get Griffin to change his number.

“I definitely am familiar with the No. 10 on Robert Griffin,” he said with a chuckle. “But, you know, we’ve talked about it a little bit, but there hasn’t been a decision that’s been made yet so far, but maybe by the time season starts we’ll know. But maybe RGIII will wear No. 3 and I’ll try to get in 10. We’ll see how it goes though. Never know.”

    COLY McCOY a REDSKIN. He won’y wear # 10 either.

  2. Ghost of Sammy Baugh says:

    Will the REDSKINS clear REX the GROSS-man off the roster if KIRK COUSINS is not traded during the draft? Stay tuned.

  3. Ghost of Sammy Baugh says:

    ROB JACKSON in the house. One less reason to draft an olb in the draft.

    Needs now appear to be:

    R-OT
    TE
    RB
    DT
    ILB
    SS

    not necessarily in that order. Whatever player presents as the best available at any one of those positions when the REDSKINS are on the clock at #34.

    And COLT McCOY is insurance in case a deal for KIRK COUSINS arises on the second day of the draft, or as a rellacement for the GROSS-man, whichever.
