Atlanta Falcons RB JacQuizz Rodgers Yields #22 to New CB Asante Samuel

Atlanta Falcons RB JacQuizz Rodgers stated on twitter early tonight that he’d be handing off the #22 on his jersey to newly acquired corner Asante Samuel.

JacQuizz Rodgers wore the number 22 in his rookie season last year with the Atlanta Falcons. Rodgers posted this via his twitter account (@qui22rodgers) around 9:30pm ET: “For you falcon fans @pick_six22 will be wearing 22..It wouldnt be right if he wasnt in that duece duece this season. #VetRespect

A classy move by a young player. Looks like they’re already getting along down in A-Town. It appears someone will be changing their twitter name, too.
