    Donnie Avery

    Any news on whether or not he will switch his number 17 to the 81 (torry holt)??

    i think if he were going to change, he would've done it already.
    a few guys had new numbers before the last minicamp.

    i doubt he would go to 81 though, too soon for someone else to wear it.

    I believe in college he wore #2 (an ineligible NFL receiver number) so I don't know that he would have a connection to a number other than 17. Donnie Avery may be a "17" for life.

    What`s wrong with 17, I WOULDNT mind it at all if he could put on another 17lbs also. I think that would make him pretty scary receiver. Still a little slight, dont you think?

    I think that Avery is working on building his WR skills instead of his jersey number. He had a very good season for a rookie WR and he's going to have to be the number 1 receiver on this squad. I think that's the number he's focused on.

    I think having our starters wearing teen numbers is unique. We've had a greatest show on turf wearing 80's, maybe we can make something fun with the teens.

    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!

    I think having a signed rookie Avery jersey would be sweet, especially if he changes his number, always wanted a #88 Torry Holt jersey... Retro is in man

Thanks, i guess? haha

    I got one. But it is not signed.

    I actually got it from Kurt Warner's Cross line (IIRC) website a few... years ago. It's funny that I cannot remember the details, but it just showed up in the mail one day.

    Re: Donnie Avery

    Donnie Avery is on my Facebook (that statement probably makes me sound like a proper wanker) and I did ask the question about jersey number a bit back, and he said he's keeping it and that a front office official was dicussing the prospect of having 17 Avery jerseys in the Pro Shop. Huzzah.

    Re: Donnie Avery

    ive just asked for him to add me to his FB so if he don`t... i wanna know what you did to get in..

    i presume he`s the one with U. of Houston graduate `07 next to his name anyway...looked like it might be him in the pic but its shady and he`s wearing a cap..


    p.s. anyone want to add me to their FB....i dont go on there that much but i am 2nd on the all time trivia scoreboard on there with a whopping 10,870.pts(which means ive got 1,087 questions correct.) and yes i do like to blow my own trumpet!
