Second-year wide receiver Rashod Bateman is changing his jersey to No. 7 after wearing No. 12 as a rookie.
The first-round draft pick had a solid rookie season after missing the first five games following groin surgery, finishing with 46 catches for 515 yards and a touchdown.
The Ravens’ No. 7 was worn most recently by Trace McSorley, and other Ravens who have worn the number include Kyle Boller, Ryan Mallett, Billy Cundiff and Chris Redman.

The Ravens’ past three top draft picks have all changed their jersey numbers.
WR Hollywood Brown: 1️⃣5️⃣ to 5️⃣
ILB Patrick Queen: 4️⃣8️⃣ to 6️⃣
WR Rashod Bateman: 1️⃣2️⃣ to 7️⃣
So maybe hold off on getting a rookie’s jersey for a while, yeah?
