With the NFL easing jersey number restrictions for multiple positions, many began to speculate on who throughout the league could ditch their current numbers for new ones. The Baltimore Ravens have a few players who might look to switch to something that they think is better for them, and the first jersey change in Baltimore has officially happened.
A few weeks ago, Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen was on a mission to convince Lamar Jackson to give up his No. 8 jersey. Queen wore No. 8 in college, but after going back and forth with the quarterback on Twitter, he revealed that it was all just a joke.
However, not being able to pry No. 8 away from Jackson didn’t deter Queen from making a jersey change. The linebacker announced that he’d be making the switch from No. 48 to No. 6.
The Ravens confirmed the move, saying that Queen is indeed changing to a single-digit number.
Queen is officially the first Raven to take advantage of the NFL’s new jersey rules, as he leaves No. 48 behind after just one season. More number changes could be on the way in Baltimore, as even though DeShon Elliott revealed that he won’t be getting No. 4 from Sam Koch, other Ravens players who could make a number switch include Marquise Brown, James Proche, and others.
