Jaylon Smith made headlines today when he actually went through with changing his number to the No. 9 last worn by Tony Romo. Smith wore No. 54 his first four seasons with Dallas, but was No. 9 throughout his career at Notre Dame.
As expected, the fan base was beyond upset over this and let out their feelings on Twitter.
Prior to the NFL Draft, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones talked to the media about No. 9 and whether he’d let another player wear that number.
“Sometimes it’s a good enough deal for them to want to change and sometimes it isn’t,” Jones said, via the Cowboys’ official site. “We usually, as you know, let our players work it out between themselves. If anybody wants No. 9, we’ll have to represent Romo on this side of the table.”
In order to make this switch, Smith paid close to mid-six figures just to buy out the current inventory of his No. 54 jerseys and shirts.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
