New Atlanta Falcons running back Todd Gurley has worn No. 30 for his entire NFL career, but he could change it this year for a really touching reason.

Gurley spent his first five NFL seasons as a member of the Los Angeles Rams but was released this offseason. It didn’t take him long to find a new home in Atlanta, landing with the Falcons on a one-year contract.

No doubt, taking a different number for Ollison’s sake would go a long way toward building rapport with his new teammates. Gurley wore No. 3 at Georgia before entering the NFL. Currently, nobody on Atlanta’s roster wears No. 3, so going back to his old number would make a ton of sense.
