New Washington Redskins LB/S Su'a Cravens asked Skins fans on twitter yesterday which number he should wear, noting that his idol Sean Taylor's #21 which he wore in college wasn't an option. Redskins Nation responded with the suggestion to wear Taylor's rookie number, #36

Cravens took the suggestion, and will now be wearing #36 this season to honor and show respect to the late, great Sean Taylor.

"Well he's definitely my all-time favorite safety, and those are big shoes to fill," Cravens said on "Redskins Nation." "So when I come into Washington, I'm ready to play and hopefully I can be half as good as that man."
