New Atlanta Falcons running back Todd Gurley has worn No. 30 for his entire NFL career, but he could change it this year for a really touching reason.
Todd Gurley told Chris Long he’s thinking about changing his number. His new Falcons teammate, Qadree Ollison, wears the No. 30 in honor of his murdered brother.— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) March 26, 2020
Gurley spent his first five NFL seasons as a member of the Los Angeles Rams but was released this offseason. It didn’t take him long to find a new home in Atlanta, landing with the Falcons on a one-year contract.
No doubt, taking a different number for Ollison’s sake would go a long way toward building rapport with his new teammates. Gurley wore No. 3 at Georgia before entering the NFL. Currently, nobody on Atlanta’s roster wears No. 3, so going back to his old number would make a ton of sense.
