Cornerback Desmond Trufant wore the No. 21 for the Falcons the past seven seasons but was released by Atlanta this offseason. Gurley wore the No. 30 during his first five NFL seasons with the Rams.
He wore the No. 3 while starring at the University of Georgia and was asked during the interview whether he would ever consider wearing the number in the NFL.
“Unfortunately the way the NFL works, that’s not going to happen,” he said. “That’s going to be the last thing that happens, trust me.”
Per NFL rules, a running back’s uniform number must be from 20 to 49.
