When OJ Atogwe played for the Rams he wore No. 21, of course the same number as the late Sean Taylor. After joining the Redskins in the offseason, he made it clear via his Twitter that he would honor Taylor’s memory and switch to a different number:
With all due respect, I will not be rocking nor even asking to rock 21…—

So now he and the Redskins have concocted a fun way for fans to get involved in the renumbering process.
Via the Redskins official Facebook page, if you correctly guess the new safety’s number, you win an autographed Atogwe jersey. Go to the sweepstakes page and enter your guess (remember that safeties numbers are typically in the 20′s and 30′s. Or you could be bold and guess 137–you may not be right, but if you are, you’re the only one that got it).
What’s better than a free lunch? Oh right, a free jersey. If you’re interested in guessing, you must enter by 11:59 p.m. tonight.
With an abridged version of the new league well under way, don’t overlook the addition of Atogwe to patrol center field. With his nose for the football and ability to create turnovers, he won’t be the forgotten man in Washington for very long.
All correct guesses will be entered in a drawing for the jersey, which will given away presumably after the Redskins announce jersey numbers. The fine print says no purchase necessary, so best of luck to anyone with a hunch:
