Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo will wear the No. 6 jersey in Atlanta after giving No. 7 to Bijan Robinson, the Falcons’ first-round draft pick.

The No. 7 jersey in Atlanta became the most popular jersey in Falcons history when Michael Vick wore it from 2001 to 2006. After Vick went from Falcons starting quarterback to prison inmate, no one wore the No. 7 jersey for the Falcons until Koo got it in 2019.

Now the Falcons have announced that Koo will wear No. 6 so Robinson can wear No. 7.

Backup quarterback Logan Woodside had previously been No. 6 in Atlanta but will wear No. 11 this season.

  1. That’s terrific, this bit of news just improved my mood and will carry me throughout the day. Consider myself enlightened.

  2. Let’s hope Bijan packs all the excitement of Vick but without the drama.

  3. So did Koo get paid by Robinson like what typically happens when a new player comes in and wants a number or did they just figure he’s a kicker and that unwritten rule doesn’t apply?

  4. Sooooooooo….if Koo goes into a funk and starts missing kicks will this be the cause?? You change ANYTHING with a kickers routine and you risk bad things happening. We’ll see.
