Mr. Snell Yeah Later will not be bringing 26 with him from Lexington to Pittsburgh.
Participating in team activities for the first time since he was drafted in the fourth round by the Pittsburgh Steelers, Kentucky’s all-time leading rusher rocked the No. 24 to rookie mini-camp.
When Le’Veon Bell departed, seeing Benny in 26 again was almost too good to be true. Steelers fans already had their jerseys prepared.
Josh Allen will still wear No. 41 when he suits up for the Jacksonville Jaguars. To keep the number, the first round pick had a price to pay to Tre Herndon, who wore the number last year. Allen does not have any specific emotional attachment to the number, but he did not want to make that change.
“Not a lot of people wear 41 in my position and make it look good. I didn’t want to wear 99. Might as well get my number back,” Allen told reporters. “I asked, he said yeah, and then it was all business.”
Allen did not disclose how much he paid for the number, other than it was “more than 41 dollars.”
