If you are a big fan of Jeff Okudah, then you know that this day is coming. The second-year guard of the Detroit Lions is obvious. He wants to change his jersey number from the beginning of his rookie season. In that season, his jersey number was 30. Well, this seems to happen soon.
As Jeff Risdon of Lions Wire initially pointed out, the Detroit Lions appear to be selling Jeff Okudah jerseys with the number 23 printed on it.
Although the team has not confirmed this number change (his number is still 30 on Lions’ official website), there are many reasons to think this will be Okudah̵
Wood said: “He is on duty regularly and I think he is full of energy for the new coaching staff and many other players.”
In addition, we know that Ocada has made contact with Darius Slay before being selected, and at least there is a friendly relationship between the two. So maybe it’s no coincidence that both Oduka and Sly start with the number 30 and then transition to the number 23.
However, if you trigger finger itching on Easter, please be warned before you buy the next Lions jersey for the next five years. The Kansas City Chiefs proposed a rule change this year that will give cornerbacks (currently only wearing numbers between 20 and 49) the opportunity to wear numbers between 1-19. Okudah ranked first in college and high school. Also, don’t forget that Lions will make some uniform changes as early as next year.
