Akeem King, rookie Brian Hill switch jersey numbers

This is the kind of training camp news we all live for.

You guys love your jersey questions and number switching, so I figured I’d provide you with a juicy tidbit along those lines. This one concerns rookie Brian Hill, who is gunning for the third running back job in camp, and Akeem King, who is trying to hang on in a crowded cornerback depth chart.

These kinds of swaps usually involve money or, I dunno, Zaxby’s gift certificates changing hands, so we’ll see if either party confirms the details of the trade later on. In case you’ve already been to camp and seen Hill in 38 and King in 25, though, don’t do a double take next time you see these guys on the field.

We’ll see if this whole thing becomes moot in a month or so, or if both of these players wind up making the team.
