"Rookie running back Marcus Murphy has changed from No. 48 to No. 23"

"Newly acquired linebacker Michael Mauti is No. 56"

They have some big shoes to fill!

New Orleans Saints rookie linebacker Hau'oli Kikaha said his jersey change to No. 44 was a tribute to the overall spot where the team picked him in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft, he said Friday.

He also preferred the number over the No. 45 he wore through the offseason and preseason as a tribute to the No. 8 he wore in college at Washington, as in four plus four equals eight.

"One of my friends pointed it out," Kikaha said.

But those weren't the only reasons for the number change.

The clincher came with something his grandmother told him.

"I'm the 44th descendent of my great-grandmother, who's like our favorite person in our family," Kikaha said. "She's going to be 100 in two years."
