Rookie Numbers Assigned

Posted by nickwagoner on May 11, 2011 – 8:56 PM

–  The Rams have tentatively set aside the numbers for the new rookie class.

– For those looking to get a jumpstart on buying a jersey or just updating their roster with the new class, here’s the lowdown…

– DE Robert Quinn – 94

– TE Lance Kendricks – 88

– WR Austin Pettis – 83

– WR Greg Salas – 87

– S Jermale Hines – 21

– CB Mikail Baker – 41

– LB Jabara Williams – 52

– S Jonathan Nelson – 26

– Some notes on these numbers that might have been worn previously.

– No player on the active roster wore 94 last year. DT Jimmy Saddler-McQueen wore it on the practice squad. Victor Adeyanju had it previously.

– Tight End Derek Schouman wore 88 last year. He is not under contract for 2011.

– No. 83 belonged to practice squad WR Brandon McRae last year and hasn’t been worn prominently since Kevin Curtis.

– No. 87 was property of TE Darcy Johnson last year. He, too, is not under contract for 2011.

– Hines is stepping into a vacated safety spot that was held by Oshiomogho Atogwe and he’s also taking over Atogwe’s old No. 21. Atogwe signed with Washington before the lockout began.

– Baker is taking over one of the rare numbers that was not worn by anyone at any point last year.

– Williams has the number that once belonged to Curtis Johnson. Johnson was on practice squad for part of last year but finished the season on the active roster.

– Nelson’s No. 26 was also unaccounted for last year but might be most recently remembered because it was CB Tye Hill’s.

– Of the eight new rookies on the roster, none are scheduled to wear the same number they wore in college in the pros.
