    Deacon Jones, the Hall of Famer who died in June at the age of 74, will be honored throughout the 2013 season with a helmet decal with his No. 75 that all Rams players will wear.

    The Rams will also recognize members of Jones’s family at their opener on September 8.

    “Deacon Jones was a legend who was cherished by generations of NFL fans and players,” Rams COO Kevin Demoff said in a statement. “Our team is proud to wear his number on our helmets throughout the season to honor his meaning to this organization.”

    Jones was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in 1961 and played 11 years for the franchise. Widely regarded as one of the best players in NFL history, Jones was the first person to use the term “sack” to mean tackling the quarterback; he compared his role in rushing the passer to the role of destroyers sacking a vanquished land.

    E X C E L L E N T.

    The saying "credit where credit is due" in Spanish is, "Honor a quien honor merece", literally, honor to whom honor deserves.

    And, obviously, this special decal certainly serves posthumously as part of said honor. Thanks for the news Rambos.

    I think that's a great idea - as is honoring Deacon - but their design kinda sucks,imo. The two elements just don't go together.
    Maybe we need a contest. I've seen better work on this board in sigs, etc. Easy enough to create a sticker file we could download and print.

    I have to agree with Azul. The present day logo overlapping the classic numbering font and colors just doesn't look that great to me. I'd rather the logo not be on there and just have the classic look and number on the decal.

    Totally agree. That decal proposed by the Rams front office just doesn't look right.
