Titans CB Chidobe Awuzie having trouble picking a jersey number

One of the first orders of business for players when they sign with a new team is to pick a number, something cornerback Chidobe Awuzie and the rest of the Tennessee Titans’ free agents are currently in the process of doing.

But Awuzie is apparently having an issue trying to figure out what number he’ll wear, as he revealed on social media on Saturday.

“All the good numbers taken, [I don’t know] what [I’m going to] wear this year,” he tweeted.

Awuzie wore No. 22 during his three years with the Cincinnati Bengals, which is, of course, Derrick Henry’s old number. It isn’t clear if the Titans won’t let him wear it, or if he simply doesn’t want to out of respect.

Over four years with the Dallas Cowboys, Awuzie wore No. 33 and No. 24. The latter is currently taken by defensive back Elijah Molden, and cornerback Eric Garror wears No. 33.

His college digit, No. 4, is also taken by punter Ryan Stonehouse, so there’s another roadblock for him. Chido is also out of options with other single digits, with Nos. 0-9 either taken or retired by the franchise.

The good news for Awuzie is that he’ll have a lot more money in his bank account after signing his deal with the Titans, so maybe he flexes his financial muscle and buys a number from one of his teammates.

Let the Chido number watch begin.
