Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey has settled on No. 5 as his new jersey number after moving on from No. 20.

The All-Pro defender flirted with the idea of taking No. 2 earlier in the offseason, but the Rams assigned that to wide receiver Robert Woods, who switched from 17. Ramsey has been sporting No. 5 at Rams minicamp.

Ramsey sought a new number after the NFL relaxed jersey rules, allowing defensive backs and other positions to adopt single-digit uniforms.

The Florida State product wore No. 8 in college before adopting No. 20 when the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted him in 2016.
