Deion Sanders addressed what he told Todd Gurley about wearing No. 21 with the Falcons – For The Win

Shortly after the Atlanta Falcons signed running back Todd Gurley, there was speculation about what number he would choose with Atlanta.

The No. 30 that Gurley wore with the Rams was taken by Qadree Ollison as a tribute to his brother who was killed in a 2017 shooting. So, Gurley wasn’t going to make a push for that number. And NFL rules didn’t allow Gurley to go back to the No. 3 that he wore with the Georgia Bulldogs.

So, he turned to the famed No. 21, which was Deion Sanders’ old number and newly vacant after Desmond Trufant’s departure. The only problem was that Sanders apparently didn’t want Gurley to wear the number.

In an Atlanta radio interview, Gurley said of the number, “Prime was hating on me. He told me don’t wear it.” Despite Sanders’ request, Gurley chose No. 21.

But it’s evidently all good with Sanders. The former Falcons star tweeted on Sunday that he was actually joking with Gurley when they discussed the number.

Sanders said that he was sure that Gurley would represent the number well.
