he Falcons’ first-round pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant, wasted no time in deciding what number he’ll wear with the Falcons.
Trufant will wear the No. 21 jersey in Atlanta, perhaps a nod to former Falcon cornerback and Ring of Honor member Deion Sanders, who wore the same digits.
“I thought about it,” Trufant said. “That was Deion Sanders’ number when he was here and he was a great player. … It’s an honor to wear that number and to be here in general. It’s pretty cool. I can’t wait to put it on.”
