DeSean Jackson will wear #11! Chris Baker... #90! https://t.co/imBUVyyqls2017-3-11 16:28:51
After signing a three-year, $35 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week, veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson had some business to take care off. He wanted his No. 11.
Fellow receiver Adam Humphries wore the number in his first two seasons with Tampa, but he agreed to give it to D-Jax on one condition, according to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.
Not for himself, though. Humphries gave up the number after "Jackson pledged to make a donation to a children's charity in Tampa," his new home. Per Auman, Humphries plans to make a similar donation in his hometown, Spartanburg, South Carolina.
"For him to be a new member of the Tampa Bay area, it's good for him to get involved like that," Humphries said. "The money wasn't really that big a deal, so we wanted to help out. It's just something good to come out of a little fun between two teammates."
Props to both receivers. Everybody wins.
