Darius Slay, who was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles last week, will wear No. 24 next season.
Slay wore No. 23 with the Detroit Lions, but wants to honor the late Kobe Bryant.
"I'm going Kobe mode," the cornerback said in an Instagram video. "Black mamba. Rest in peace to the GOAT. One of my favorite players. I will look good in 24."
