Dallas Cowboys fans are completely and utterly outraged this week.
Jaylon Smith is contemplating a jersey number change, but the change has the fan base upset, because the linebacker wants the No. 9.
Smith is among the Cowboys players who hinted about a change on social media as the NFL contemplates relaxing the rules to allow more position groups to wear single-digit numbers.
“Know what type of time I’m on [if] they let this rule pass #Nina,” Smith said in a recent Instagram Story post.
Jaylon actually wore No. 9 as a standout college player at Notre Dame but switched to No. 54 to comply with NFL rules once he arrived in Dallas.
Even Smith’s current number has ties to the No. 9.
It doesn’t matter about his history on the number, Cowboys fans wanted his head for even thinking about taking Tony Romo’s old number.
This past season, he had a career high 155 tackles, and registered 1.5 sacks, an interception, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.
