Eagles Extras: An NFL Jersey Number Costs 10,000

Jason Babin reportedly paid Trevor Laws in excess of five figures to get his jersey No. 93.

What’s an NFL jersey number worth? Well, it depends who you ask. The Birds highest priced free agent this offseason, Nnamdi Asomugha, would have liked Joselio Hansen’s No. 21, but after a short conversation, Nnamdi realized the number wasn’t worth haggling over, so he simply chose a different number.

One of the Eagles other free agent signings, however, ponied up the cash to get the number he desired.

According to the Eskin family, defensive lineman Jason Babin shelled out in excess of $10,000 to Trevor Laws to get the coveted No. 93. Mind boggling numbers there, literally.

A quick update on Mike Patterson, per Les Bowen, “Agent JR Rickert says Mike Patterson is out of the hospital and hopes to be cleared to resume normal team activities in a few days.”

That’s not exactly clearing the situation up a whole lot, but at least Patterson’s intentions at this point are to resume football activities in the near future.

Another new Eagle, Evan Mathis,  seems to have a pretty entertaining Twitter account, “Damn it feels good to be a gangsta. Wait… I mean damn it feels good to be back on the field.”

Nnamdi Asomugha is limby, at least according to Les Bowen, “Nnamdi Asomugha is 80 percent arms and legs. That’s a legit 80 percent, I quantified it through my patented formula.”
