Deion Sanders warned Todd Gurley not to wear No. 21 with Falcons
Todd Gurley has a new uniform number with the Atlanta Falcons, and he’s doing it over the objections of a franchise icon.
Gurley said he would wear No. 21 for the Falcons in 2020. That’s the same number Deion Sanders wore during his tenure in Atlanta, and Gurley said he’s taking the number over Sanders’ objections.
“Prime was hatin’ on me. He told me don’t wear it,” Gurley told The Midday Show with Andy and Randy on Atlanta’s 92.9 The Game. “If I was Prime, I wouldn’t want nobody be wearing my number either.”
Deion is an icon, and Gurley knows it. The number is there to be taken, though, and isn’t exclusive to Sanders. It may just be Gurley’s way of paying homage to the two-sport star.
Sanders can at least look on the bright side. He definitely has more cool jackets than Gurley does.
