On the Rams’ web site, it says that Sam’s jersey will ship 2-4 weeks after his number is assigned; according to OutSports’ Cyd Zeigler, the no. 10 that’s currently shown there signifies that Sam was their tenth pick in this year’s draft, but is not the number that Sam will wear this year. Hopefully the league office can handle the volume of orders sooner than later.
