The St. Louis Rams officially signed wide receiver Kenny Britt yesterday. We’ve had plenty of coverage here regarding the signing, including this, this and this, but ultimately, no matter what our stance on the signing, we all accepted that Britt was going to be part of the team and that we should root for the guy to turn his career around.
But then I saw this, and I got kind of angry.
Kenny Britt will wear number 81

Guys, how can we be outraged Britt is wearing No. 81? I mean they only reserve it for the best of the best, like Mardy Gilyard

(I have to admit, I totally forgot Gilyard wore no. 81. That might be even worse.)
