Cardinals rookie receiver Rondale Moore wore No. 4 at Purdue. When he arrived in Arizona as a second-round choice, Moore found No. 4 taken.

Veteran punter Andy Lee has worn No. 4 for 13 of his 17 NFL seasons, including the past two seasons in Arizona after wearing No. 2 in his first two seasons with the Cardinals.

So Moore selected No. 85.

But JoJo Ward‘s recent release opened up No. 14.

Lee told Moore he would switch to No. 14, allowing Moore to have No. 4. Lee, though, did receive compensation for the jersey change.

“He does not like spending money at all,” Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said of Moore, via Darren Urban of the team website. “So it hurt him. But he was very happy to get the number.”

Moore said earlier in camp he bought his mother a house.

“That’s about it,” Kingsbury said. “I don’t think he’s spent another dollar outside of that.”

  1. I’m guessing every rookie NFL player who signs a higher wage contract makes buying his mom a house his first priority!

  2. Super excited to see what Moore will do this year. He could be the steal of the draft. He was the best player on the field in his game against Ohio State a couple years ago.

  3. Thank you Lee for making that possible… Moore will settle in very nicely now with his familiar good luck number.
