marquise brown switches to no. 5
Another Baltimore Ravens player is switching his jersey number. Wide receiver Marquise Brown is switching from No. 15 to No. 5. Linebacker Patrick Queen announced he was changing numbers earlier this week.
Brown wore the No. 5 in college BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, elite quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Joseph Vincent Flacco wore the No.5 for his career in Baltimore and is the basis of its legendary symbolism.
I'm not nearly as bothered by this as most people would assume I would be. It's just a jersey, and I'm sorry to say, but Hollywood Brown at this moment is not nearly the player Flacco was for the Ravens, so it's all good for me.
daesean hamilton clears waivers, is added to broncos nfi list
The Denver Broncos were planning on trading wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton last week until he, unfortunately, tore his ACL working out (away from the team's facility, might I add). The team ended up waiving him earlier this week. Hamilton was not picked up by any of the other 31 clubs, so he lands on Denver's non-football injury list.
This situation is eerily similar to the Broncos' other current player-gets-injured-away-from-team-facility-and-its-therefore-not-our-problem case. Tackle Ja'Wuan James faced a similar problem, except he was released from the team. James may file a grievance as well, and players are keeping an eye on this one.
