The Caw: No. 29 Goes to Earl Thomas or Marlon Humphrey?

Marlon Humphrey is pumped about having ball-hawking safety Earl Thomas on his squad now.

Buuuuut, there’s a little business that may need taking care of …

You see, Humphrey has been wearing No. 29 for the past two seasons. And, well, umm, Earl Thomas has worn No. 29 throughout his nine-year NFL career.

So who gets it moving forward?

Departed safety Eric Weddle, who is still reveling in busting his former teammates’ chops on Twitter, was pretty blunt about it.

Humphrey and Thomas aren’t the only Ravens in conflict. New running back Mark Ingram wore No. 22 in New Orleans and cornerback Jimmy Smith has it in Baltimore.

FOX Sports apparently worked it all out …

Finally, Thomas weighed in, and it seems like he wants that No. 29 …

This left us all like …

Humphrey wore No. 29, then switched to No. 26 in college. He wore No. 26 because it’s the same jersey number his father, and star running back, Bobby Humphrey wore at Alabama.

But Marlon didn’t like the way No. 26 looked on a Ravens jersey so he went back to No. 29 as an NFL rookie. It also wouldn’t be easy for Humphrey to go back to No. 26 because that’s owned by fellow cornerback Maurice Canady.

Anyway, somebody is going to have to change their number next year. And it seems to be leaning in Thomas’ favor. Stay tuned …
