The Los Angeles Rams are welcoming nine rookies from the 2020 NFL Draft as they all are looking to make a strong start in the league. Even though fans were disappointed to see the Rams not address the offensive line as heavy as they wished, it made perfect sense why Los Angeles attacked the draft the way they did. With the rookies slowly getting a feel for the new organization, the Rams announced the rookie numbers for all nine members. Here are those new numbers below.
- RB Cam Akers: 23
- WR Van Jefferson: 12
- OLB Terrell Lewis: 52
- DB Terrell Burgess: 26
- TE Brycen Hopkins: 88
- S Jordan Fuller: 32
- LB Clay Johnston: 58
- K Sam Sloman: 1
- OL Tremayne Anchrum: 76
However, there is one Rams legend who is quite mad about one rookie’s number. Rams legend Orlando Pace recently took to social media about how OL Tremayne Anchrum will be using No. 76, the same number Pace wore with the Rams. I’m not entirely sure why the number is not yet retired by the Rams organization but fans backed up the Hall of Famer.
No Respect. Smh

There are some numbers you can’t mess with and #76 is definitely one of them.

Clearly Pace is not happy with the number choice. Should the Rams retire No. 76 in honor of Orlando Pace?
