Cool...I had forgotten that he was the grandson of the great Elijah Pitts...I wonder when RBs were no longer allowed to wear #s in the 20s...

They've always been allowed as far as I can recall. Curtis Martin #28, Corey Dillon #28...could go on, but yeah, not sure what you mean, Cap'n.

You're right about those #s...I dunno, the story seems to imply that Bolden would not have been able to switch to #25 before this season if he had wanted to do so, or maybe I'm reading this incorrectly...

Hm, good call, it does sound that way. I think it was meant to imply it got him thinking about changing his number? Maybe?

Maybe he couldn't change it cause Chung had it. idk
Chung wore 23 in his second stint here. There's almost always been someone else wearing 25 though, so maybe Bolden just didn't have the priority when picking numbers, or maybe he just didn't think of it until this year because he's getting old and just wanted to make sure he wore 25 for at least one year.
