He will change his jersey number from 31 to 38, which he wore at Oklahoma.Â Williams, a devout Christian, said the number eight represents a new beginning in the Bible.
Williams wore No. 38 during practice the past two days.Â He said he chose not to change numbers sooner because he didn’t want owner Jerry Jones to lose money on jersey sales.
I wonder if the number change will happen this season or next?
I was alsoÂ unfamiliar with the number eight meaning a new beginning in the Bible, but this is what I found:
The number â€œ8â€ in the Bible represents â€œnew beginningsâ€. This is seen when God repopulated the earth after the flood by using eight people. This is also seen in the Bible when male Jewish infants were circumcised on the eighth day of their birth.Â Source
