As a member of the New York Giants — Landon Collins wore the #21 jersey as a tribute to Sean Taylor, who wore that number as a member of the Washington Redskins. Now, Collins finds himself on that same team and would love to keep wearing that number.
Washington hasn’t issued No. 21 to any player since Taylor was murdered in 2007, and Collins would love to be the first.
After Collins signed with Washington, Dan Snyder gave him a gift of a signed, game-worn Taylor jersey. It was one of two jerseys that he owned.
The team hasn’t officially retired the number and the team has not issued Collins a number as of yet.
