It didn’t take but a couple of minutes after the Detroit Lions pick of Ziggy Ansah for the team’s official twitter account to send out notification that he has been assigned a jersey number:

Lions fans will recognize number 94 as the number worn by Lawrence Jackson since he joined the team in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks. Jackson tweeted earlier in the offseason that the Lions had made him a contract offer but he remains unsigned. With Ansah joining the Lions defensive end ranks and the assigning of the number 94 you have to wonder if Jackson’s time with the Lions is officially over.
