Accoding to the Jacksonville Jaguars' twitter, Denard has changed his number back to something we are all a little more familiar with:
We all, down deep, knew it was just a matter of time.
the universe has been returned to equilibrium.
Next thing to take care of is making sure that all of the NFL announcers know about his nickname and how he earned it.
After that, all that he has left on his checklist is to start breaking records.
"They call this kid 'Shoeless,' because he is so fast he flies out of his shoes"
Speaking of Jag's social media... this looks familiar.
Also interesting..looks like our old buddy Toney Clemons is right next to him at #17
denard has got to be the most hyped late round draft pick ever....
Undeserved? If so, I'd disagree.
if Jacksonville has figured out if they put any mention of Denard into their press releases and practice videos they draw the clicks of the Michigan fan base. I know I had never been to Jacksonville's site before, and have been clicking through every few days during their camps just because it makes me smile.
I thought the only eligible OW numbers were 100-999?
Anyone know if Denard was a Jags fan while growing up in FL? With Miami and the Bucs (who actually won a Super Bowl in Denard's impressionable years) I doubt he rooted for the Jags. But, that'd be pretty cool if he was.
I'd like to see Lewan get picked by the Cards as the overall No. 1 and get the #77. And I hope the Lions draft me and let me wear #33. But if a veteran has that number I'll take whatever they give me...
...he said during an interview at the Gator Bowl (same stadium...Rich Rod's last game), that he was a Bucs fan growing up.
"Robinson was listed as not only a second-team wide receiver, but third-team quarterback, third-team running back and second-team kickoff returner."
how does that saying go...Jack of all trades, Master of none?
...though oft times better than master of one.
He's more of a WR now than a RB. 16 is a WR number while 26 is a RB number.
OR...I suppose it could mean that they have another RB that they'd like to put on the roster so they "moved" Denard to WR since he's going to play both to make room for this other RB.
Also I don't think numbers in the 20s are able to play QB, although I'm not sure with the wildcat stuff
Darren McFadden has taken snaps at QB for the Wildcat...so has Dexter McCluster in KC. Apologies if I butchered his last name.
Now I gotta go get that tatoo fixed...
God made him fast. And the pro football world will soon discover that. Don't care what position he plays.
He'll make a difference as a player and a teammate. And we will simply acknowledge the obvious....that he's just a winner. No matter what.
My kids went to the scrimmage for the Jags on Saturday and Denard busted a 50 yard return. I promptly received a text from their grandpa saying "Denard is FAST!!!!" Why yes, yes he is sir!
