(FootballStL) – The St. Louis Rams officially signed its newest receiver, Kenny Britt, to a contract on Monday. And now it looks like he’ll be wearing the number of one of the franchise’s all-time greats.
The troubled wide receiver will wear No. 81, previously worn by Tory “Big Game” Holt, according to multiple reports.
The news quickly spread through Twitter, and most of the feedback wasn’t positive.
Kenny Britt wearing #81 is a joke. What's next, I Pead is going to wear #28?— Rams Fan For Life (@scothoffman) April 8, 2014
