Washington Redskins announce jersey number for former Mississippi State EDGE Montez Sweat
The Washington Redskins traded back into the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft to select former Mississippi State EDGE Montez Sweat.
Now, Sweat is at the team’s rookie minicamp, where he has recently been assigned a jersey number.
Per a release from the team, Sweat will wear No. 90 during his rookie season with the Redskins, which is a change from the No. 9 jersey he wore at Mississippi State.
Sweat fell down draft boards after a strong performance at the NFL Combine because of a heart condition that surfaced. However, he downplayed those concerns and managed to remain a first-round pick.
He’s working his way toward his first NFL season now, and there will be a lot of expectations on him during the 2019 campaign.
