    LT's Number? Blackjack in Green and White

    03/23 Equipment manager Gus Granneman and his staff are busy today with a hamperful of newly assigned uniform numbers to recently assigned players. But we could have seen one player/number combination coming down One Jets Drive:

    LaDainian Tomlinson will wear No. 21 in green and white.

    Tomlinson, of course, has worn 21 since he entered the NFL as the San Diego Chargers' fifth pick overall in the 2001 draft.

    To get that winning blackjack hand, LT had to fight off a few new teammates who also had connections to the number. CB Dwight Lowery began his Jets career in 2008 as No. 34 before starting anew with 21 last offseason. And newly signed S Brodney Pool had worn 21 with Cleveland since the Browns drafted him in the second round of the '05 draft.

    [B]Pool will wear 22 as a Jet. Lowery becomes 26,[/B] pending official league approval of the change.

    Newly signed LB/ST Lance Laury will receive his new number once he arrives. Here are the 14 numbers just assigned to new arrivals and some of the future signees from last month:


    K Nick Folk 2 CB Dwight Lowery 26
    P T.J. Conley 8 CB Antonio Cromartie 31
    WR Larry Taylor 15 LS Tanner Purdum 46
    WR S.J. Green 18 LB Ezra Butler 53
    RB LaDainian Tomlinson 21 LB Josh Mauga 58
    S Brodney Pool 22 T Mike Turkovich 72
    DB Bo Smith 25 DE Rodrique Wright 98

    Interesting that Lowery went with #26 instead of his old college number.

    Dwight Lowery now will have his 3rd different # in as many years in the league.

    Coincidentally, thats as many big plays as he's made in those 3 years.

    Obvious exaggeration? :i_dont_kn

    His 5 FF, 4 picks and almost 30 PD are nothing to scoff at. Even if he does get burned at times.

    Makes sense that Nick Folk is wearing #2 considering his field goal kicking is total sh/t.

    Me too. Did LT offer Dwight flat out cash or a sizable donation in Lowery's name to his favorite charity (which is usually the norm) amongst players looking to grab up their favorite number?

    BTW - Vernon Gholston got away cheap with Eric Barton & grabbing number #50 after Eric was cut. So far ole Vern has been able to hold on to his $22 mil without a hair out of place. Nice. :P

    I'll take Dwight Lowery over Kerry Rhodes any day. Dwight may get burned, but at least I know he's giving 100%. Rhodes is a P@ssy!
