Rams share first look at Baker Mayfield in No. 17 jersey

Baker Mayfield won’t be able to keep his old number with his new team, so he’s making a change. Because Derion Kendrick already has No. 6, Mayfield – who the Rams claimed off waivers on Tuesday – will go with No. 17.

That’s not a number he’s worn before, even going back to his high school days. He’s worn No. 6 since college and rocked No. 11 in high school.

Mayfield didn’t have much of a choice in the matter, either. Every number from 1 to 19 was already taken, with the exception of 17. So, he took what was available.

Heres a preview of Mayfield in his new number.
