DeAndre Hopkins hints he might wear No. 6

Mike Florio and Chris Simms rejoice over the NFL's decision to allow jersey number expansion for certain position groups but also warn of potential ripple effects for some players.

Tom Brady doesn’t like the new single-digit jersey rule, but DeAndre Hopkins does.

Hopkins, the Cardinals wide receiver who wore No. 6 at Clemson before switching to No. 10 in the NFL, posted a picture of himself in a No. 6 Cardinals jersey with a caption suggesting he wants to go back to his college number.

“Bring back the 6 like @kingjames in Miami,” Hopkins wrote, noting that LeBron James wore No. 6 when he played for the Miami Heat.

A No. 6 Hopkins jersey would certainly sell well, and the Cardinals currently don’t have a No. 6. A change would make a lot of sense, and a lot of dollars.
