Samuels, Cooley to Wear '21' At Pro Bowl

Chris Cooley and Chris Samuels will both wear No. 21, the jersey number of their late teammate Sean Taylor, during the 2008 Pro Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 10.

Cooley and Samuels each will wear a jersey with Taylor's No. 21 and their own name on the back. Cooley's regular jersey number is 47; Samuels' regular number is 60.

The jerseys that they wear in the game will be auctioned at an NFL Auction with the proceeds going to the Sean Taylor Memorial Trust Fund, which was set up to benefit Taylor's daughter Jackie.

Taylor, who died earlier this season, was voted in as the NFC Pro Bowl team's starting free safety. He was the leading vote-getter at the position among fans, coaches and players.
