Cardinals’ Marvin Harrison Jr. Gets His Jersey Number

With rookie minicamp approaching, post on social media shows No. 18

So it appears the Great Wait to see what uniform number Cardinals’ Marvin Harrison Jr. will have is over — and he apparently did some negotiating to make it happen.

Cardinals' Marvin Harrison Jr. Gets His Jersey Number

On his Instagram account, Harrison Jr. posted a simple picture of a red Cardinals jersey with his name and the No. 18. Of course, 18 was his college number, but linebacker BJ Ojulari had the number last year and it was important to him dating back to his LSU days, when he too wore 18 in college. Hoping that we find out the story of how that number swap went down (I can’t recall the specific players, but once the payoff was agreeing to pay for a player’s new outdoor space at his house.)

The rookies arrive Thursday at the Dignity Health Training Center for the first time, with rookie minicamp beginning Friday. So all the new guys will have their numbers. Fellow first-round pick Darius Robinson also used social media to announce he will be wearing No. 56.

What number Harrison was going to wear was always going to be of interest. It seemed that Ojulari might hang on to 18. Harrison Jr.’s high school number of 8 is retired by the Cardinals for Hall of Famer Larry Wilson. His father’s NFL number of 88 is also retired by the Cardinals for tight end J.V. Cain, who died after collapsing during a practice in 1979.

For the moment, Harrison Jr.’s jersey, even with a number known, still won’t be available. Harrison Jr. has yet to sign the licensing deal to allow that to happen.
