Some Jersey Number Changes

With the Dolphins roster trimmed down to 53, a handful of jersey numbers have opened up, prompting a few remaining players to change theirs.

Here are the changes:
  • CB Vontae Davis will wear No. 21 (Davis wore 24 in th preseason, as 21 was taken by cornerback Eric Green, who was released in August; Davis wore No. 1 at Illinois)
  • CB Sean Smith will wear No. 24 (Davis wore 31 in the preseason, as 24 was taken by Davis; Smith wore No. 4 at Utah)
  • LB Quentin Moses will wear No. 93 (Moses had previously worn 74 with the Dolphins; though not an eligible number for a linebacker, Moses originally joined the Dolphins as a defensive end, where 74 is allowed; rookie nose tackle Louis Ellis wore 93 in camp before being waived in August)
Hopefully none of you bought custom Davis or Smith jerseys, and if you did then you have my sympathy. I have to admit, I was very close to ordering a Smith jersey, so I'm glad I found out when I did!
