  • Donnie Avery

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

    Re: Donnie Avery

    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.
      The more things change, the more they stay the same.

        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.

                      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

                          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.

                            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.

                                ...is my hero. Seriously...he seems to be the only one out there that's showing any emotion.

                                To be honest, I might actually be able to live with a Torry Holt cutting this off-season. From my perspective..he's just been going through the motions. My love for Avery just hit an all-time high after that tackle he just made.

                                Like most teams in the NFL, attrition begins to take its toll on rosters around the league the deeper into the season you get. That’s certainly held true in the case of the Rams and nowhere is that more evident than at the receiver position.

                                At a position that was short on experience entering the season, there’s been only one constant. That constant is a blur in blue, wearing No. 17 named Donnie Avery.

                                No matter which quarterback has been under center, the one player that signal caller has been able to count on this year is Avery, the second-year speedster out of Houston.

                                “You get comfortable with certain guys,” quarterback Kyle Boller said. “I just started taking reps with these guys again. Donnie is probably one of the ones I’m more comfortable with because he’s been around for training camp and mini camps and all that kind of stuff. I feel like each and every week we get more comfortable with each other. That’s the name of the game. Timing is what it’s all about.”

                                After an up and down start to this, his second season in the league, Avery has timed his emergence at a good time.

                                It’s difficult for any young player to have an immediate impact but receivers rarely make that much of a difference unless their name is Randy Moss.

                                In the offseason, the Rams’ receiver corps went through an extreme makeover, leaving Avery and fellow second year wideout Keenan Burton as the most tenured players at the position on the roster.

                                But at least entering the year, Avery was surrounded by players like Laurent Robinson and Burton, guys who had been in the new offense installed by coordinator Pat Shurmur for the entirety of the offseason program.

                                Fast forward to now and Avery is the only active wideout on the roster who was also on it when the preseason came to an end.

                                Whether he was ready for an expanded leadership role or not, Avery was thrust into it as the most experienced guy on the team.

                                “I don’t try to go out and yell during the week or go crazy,” Avery said. “I just try to lead by example and go out there, practice hard and hopefully go into the game, play hard and have success.”

                                Since the beginning of the season, the Rams have lost Robinson and Burton to season-ending injuries. Derek Stanley was released to make room for Danny Amendola and the likes of Nate Jones and Tim Carter have made appearances on the roster.
                                The Rams have replaced those players with youngsters like Amendola and Brandon Gibson as well as more experienced guys like Ruvell Martin and Jordan Kent.

                                But none of those players have been around or have the rapport with the quarterbacks like Avery and all of those receivers are quick to turn to Avery with questions.

                                “I just try to calm them,” Avery says of the younger wideouts. “Sometimes, I see them on the sideline with jitters and tell them I...
