With the 2015 NFL Draft still fresh in the memory teams across the league have taken the next step in welcoming their new recruits.
Over the last 24 hours or so we have seen franchises allocate jersey numbers to their draft picks, and the Green Bay Packers are no different.
This is often only significant to those looking to buy a new jersey ahead of the 2015 campaign. One particular number allocation, though, handed out to the Packers' second-round pick Quinten Rollins, appears to have revealed the team's plans not to bring back a popular veteran for his 10th season.

Rollins will wear the number 24 jersey during his rookie NFL season. Fans of the Lambeau Field franchise will know that, for nye on a decade, that has been the number of cornberback/special teams captain Jarrett Bush.
With Bush currently listed as an unrestricted free agent his future in Green Bay had been uncertain. The decision to officially hand out his jersey number elsewhere, though, looks to have signalled the end of the 30-year-old's nine years on the Packers roster.

The Packers, when handing out digits to rookies, usually keep back those numbers previously warn by stars who's futures with the team are unclear. The fact number 24 is no longer available makes it pretty clear that Bush - a four-year special teams captain - is heading for a new challenge.
Jarrett Bush made most of his impact on special teams as a Green Bay Packer but perhaps his most important contribution to the cause came in his natural cornerback spot during Green Bay's Super Bowl XLV triumph.
With Charles Woodson taken out of the game with a broken collarbone, Bush deputised with great effect - snagging a crucial interception in the second quarter that Aaron Rodgers ultimately turned into a TD pass to Greg Jennings.
If we have seen the last of Jarrett Bush in Green Bay he leaves having appeared in 137 regular season games since 2006.
