Brady calls jersey number rules `dumb'


Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterbac­k Tom Brady isn't impressed with the new rule approved by NFL owners that relaxes the jersey number limitation­s for a slew of positions, calling it “dumb” on Thursday. NFL owners approved the rule change that now allows linebacker­s to wear any number between 1 and 59, defensive backs between 1 and 49, and defensive linemen any number between 50 and 79 as well as 9099. “Good luck trying to block the right people now!” Brady posted to Instagram. “Going to make for a lot of bad football! “Why not let the Linemen wear whatever they want too? Why have numbers? Just have colored jerseys ... why not wear the same number? ... DUMB,” Brady posted.
