NFL Draft 2011: Nick Fairley Will Wear Jersey No. 98 With Lions

No. 90 at Auburn, Nick Fairley was Fairley nasty; an absolute beast, actually. But he won't be wearing No. 90 with the Detroit Lions. As you should all know, that number already belongs to last year's Rookie of the Year Ndamukong Suh, and will be spoken for for as long as Suh wants it. So, yeah, Fairley, we're ecstatic to have you, but you'll need to find a new number. Oh ... 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, and 99 are also taken.

With that, Fairley has decided on wearing No. 98 with the Lions for at least the next season. Stitch your draft jerseys accordingly, or just wait for it to be released at the team store.
