Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo changes jersey number

The moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo has chosen a new jersey number after giving the No. 7 to rookie running back Bijan Robinson.

Koo will officially wear the No. 6 next season, the team revealed in a tweet on Monday afternoon.

Koo wore the No. 7 for the last four seasons since joining the team in 2019 as a free agent. Prior to Koo wearing it, former Falcons quarterback Michael Vick made the No. 7 a staple in Atlanta when he wore it from 2001-2006.
