Posted Apr 18, 2017

Justin Hardy changed his number this offseason and the WR took to twitter to explain why

A new season and a new number await Justin Hardy.

The wide receiver will now wear No. 14 and on Monday took to Twitter to explain the reason behind the number change.

Based off Hardy’s production in his sophomore season, there’s valid reason to believe Hardy could be primed for a breakout year in his third professional campaign.

Hardy caught 21 passes for 203 yards and four touchdowns and has been a key special teams player for Atlanta.

The former ECU standout will compete with newly signed receiver Andre Roberts and Devin Fuller for the Falcons’ return specialist job this year.
