Default Green strikes unusual deal for his number

I thought this was a good read about what Jason Simmons wanted from Ahman Green to get his beloved No. 30 from the long time Texan.

It's not really funny at all. A very nice jesture by Jason Simmons, giving Green his #30, and giving money to charity. You just wish everyone could be like that, then the world would be a much better place.

Really shows the character of a guy like Simmons, who is far from being the highest paid player in the league, and could have just as easily taken the money for himself. How many guys would have done something like that? Jason Simmons, if you posted on NFLDC, I would give you + rep, sir.

How can anyone be a long-time Texan? They've only been around for like four years.

Good read regardless.

I understand what you mean and it is true but it's still cool to hear it. I mean it beats the typical you get your number for fifty grand story which is what people expect. And it was creatively done, which is even cooler.

I was having similar thoughts, but 2007 will be their 6th year.

Of course, to answer the question, Simmons was a charter Texan.

True, but it's normally a high paid guy and some backup that doesn't have nearly as much money... it's not very often that a backup gives up his # and doesn't pocket the $$$.

I remember, last training camp, when Whitner showed up in Buffalo, he wanted the number 20. Shaud Williams had only been in posecsion of that number for a season, but none the less, it still took an undisclosed, "6-figure" transition for Whitner to buy the number off him.

Funny thing is, Williams will probably be cut this year, and be out of the league, unless he can find a special teams spot somewhere. His biggest nfl pay-day will be selling a number, he only ever took because he said "it made him feel faster (as opposed to his old number 40)."

Nice gesture by Simmons, when he really could have cashed in.

Do any of my fellow Bears fans know what Moose gave Justin Gage for #87?

I never understood paying for numbers. Sure, it's nice to have a number that has sentimental value or whatever but I would never pay for a number.

If you win millions of dollars a year, I think paying about 100k wouldn't be much.

Obviously they can afford it but still, that's a lot of money for a number. I guess I just don't care enough about my number to pay for it.

Also, I think it's misrepresented how much athletes make. About 40% of these guys salaries are likely chewed up by taxes. Also, some of these guys will be living off this money the rest of their lives. Plus, they're likely paying for stuff for their family and friends. Throw in money spent on agents, accountants and stuff and more money goes down the drain. Buy a million dollar house, a few cars, and these guys might need to get a day job after they retire.
