The NFL Shop can start working overtime to sell the new Donovan McNabb Redskins jerseys, because we now know that his jersey number in Washington will be the same as his jersey number in Philadelphia and at Syracuse.
The Redskins tweeted this morning that McNabb will continue to wear No. 5, which backup quarterback Colt Brennan has agreed to give up.
PFT’s Mike Florio noted Sunday night that it should be a simple arrangement in which Brennan, who wore No. 15 at Hawaii, takes his old college number. And the Redskins say that’s exactly what will happen.
We don’t know if McNabb offered anything to Brennan for his jersey number, but we’re guessing they were able to come to a more amicable agreement than Ifeanyi Ohalete and Clinton Portis.
UPDATE: We’re not sure how this guy already got a McNabb Redskins jersey, but he put the right number on it.
