New Detroit Lions defensive tackle Alim McNeill celebrated his 21st birthday on Tuesday, May 11th. The third-round nose tackle celebrated by giving fans a gift.

McNeill revealed the jersey number he will wear in Detroit.

Fans looking to get a McNeill jersey can order his No. 54, based on his Instagram post. It’s a nontraditional number for a nose tackle, but that’s nothing new for McNeill. He rocked No. 29 at North Carolina State after converting from running back to the defensive line.

No. 54 in Detroit represents Chris Spielman to many fans. Spielman is now the team’s special assistant in the front office. That number was last worn by linebacker Steve Longa in 2019.
