James Robinson promises to sign any jersey with his old number

By Tyler Nettuno

With Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson changing his jersey number from No. 30 to the No. 25 he wore in college, anyone who purchased one of his jerseys last season has seen it rendered obsolete. But if this applies to you, worry not. Robinson has you covered.

In a cool gesture that you don’t usually see from NFL players, he has offered to sign any of his No. 30 jerseys to make up for the change. He announced on Twitter that affected fans just need to reach out to the Jaguars PR Twitter account with a picture of them wearing the jersey.

Robinson’s college jersey was occupied last season by safety Jarrod Wilson, but Wilson was released last week during final roster cuts, freeing up the jersey number Robinson wore while becoming one of the most prolific running backs in Illinois State history.

The former undrafted player burst onto the scene as a rookie, finishing tied for fifth in the league with rushing yards at 1,070. He will be Jacksonville’s top back again this season, and he will likely see an even bigger role than originally thought, given the injury to running back Travis Etienne.
