Tampa Bay Bucs CB Darrelle Revis Buying Mark Barron's Jersey Number for $50,000

Tampa Bay Bucs CB Darrelle Revis really wanted the number 24 on his back. He wanted tpo wear that jersey number, but young stud safety Mark Barron was already rocking the number. So Revis decided to buy the number off of his back for a solid $50,000 according to Paul Lukas of Uni-Watch.com

That is a ton of dough to pay for a jersey number, but Revis is the highest paid defensive back in the league. I understand Revis makes a ton of dough, but is it really worth it?

John Kruk sold his jersey number for a couple of cases of beer.

What do all the Tampa Bay fans do with their number 24 Barron jerseys? Barron only wore the number 24 for one season and will get a new number.

I wonder how much of that $50,000 is guaranteed money?

Mark Barron should be able to have a nice dinner tonight. Not like the kids doesn’t have a nice contract himself, but $50,000 still has to be a good sized amount of pocket change to the kid. I think.  Would that be equivalent to $1000 for me? I really can’t grasp that part of the situation, but I will sell my flag football jersey number for a couple of cases of beer.
