Gholston Gets the Number of Former Giants Great Taylor

A lot was made today about rookie Vernon Gholston getting his new number as he reported for Jets camp – no. 56.  Yes, that is the same number that another linebacker in New York wore that gave QB’s nightmares, the same ones that Gholston wants to give QB’s in 2008.  That player that use to wear no. 56 is none other than Lawrence Taylor, Hall of Fame LB for the Giants.  Gholston says it’s not a big deal he got that number.  “I just thought it was a good number,” Gholston said. “That’s all I really thought.”

Third-round bust Anthony Schlegel was the last Jet to wear 56, and overall there has been 15 players to wear the number.  Gholston is hoping that he will be more like the player in blue that use to wear the number.  “My goal is to hopefully one day be the best player I can be,” he said. “My immediate goal is to just help this team. I’m all about the team and being a team player. If we’re all doing good, then I consider myself doing well.”
