Lynn Bowden will wear the No. 33 in Las Vegas

Heads up for those of you planning to buy a Lynn Bowden Raiders jersey: it will have a 33 on it. Bowden tweeted tonight that he is switching to the No. 33, which goes in line with Raiders General Manager Mike Maylock’s comments that they plan on using him at running back initially.

“Ultimately, he’ll probably be what we call a joker — which I love in Jon [Gruden]’s offense — it’s somebody that’s able to do multiple jobs. But day one, he’s going to come in and be a running back. In the SEC two years ago, he caught 60-70 passes as a slot. Last year, as you guys know, he was quarterback/wildcat. He gained over 1,000 yards. We think he’s one of the most athletic, tougher guys in this year’s draft. We’re going to train him to be running back. If he’s able to do that job, we’ll be able to do some other things with him.”

Bowden even used the joker emoji in his tweet tonight:

It makes sense. Bowden finished his junior year as the top rusher in the SEC with 1,468 total yards, topping the 1,414-yard mark set by LSU’s Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Outside of pure rushing yards, Bowden also finished first in the SEC and eighth in the nation in yards from scrimmage with 1,816 total yards to go with 14 touchdowns and 139 yards per game.

I like my running back.

    At least Bowden didn’t use a Joker Phillip’s emoji.

    I’ve always wondered how good Ryan Timmons would have been at RB.

      I can’t recall – was he as speedy as LBJ?

      He had good speed and a great first burst. He just suffered from a bad qb situation. Heck several sites had him as an RB or Athlete. If you ever get the chance google his highschool return tape, it’s hilarious what he does to those other kids.

      Forest’s mom was correct about life being a box of chocolates. Athletes especially can attest to that. Getting into the right fit and the right situation is so critical.

    I’m really happy for Lynn. I think he is going to have himself a really nice career.
