There aren’t many choices for Bills new LB Shawne Merriman in terms of a jersey number. That’s why we’ve got a pretty good handle on what number he’ll be wearing for Buffalo for the rest of the 2010 campaign.
We’re told odds are heavily in favor of Merriman taking jersey number 55, which is open right now. It’s the only number in the 50’s that is available, although rookie Danny Batten, who has 57, is on I-R and technically doesn’t need the number this season.
Linebackers can also wear numbers in the 90’s and the only numbers available there are 93 and 94.
We’ll confirm 55 once we know for sure.
