Celebrity Jersey Cards #668 Rob Ryan

Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing sports jerseys.

Today I am featuring only one Celebrity Jersey Card, because it is a special one. It's not because it is Rob Ryan, although no disrespect intended. Not only is it the first card of someone wearing a New Orleans Pelicans jersey, it is the last of all four major sports teams to be featured. The Pelicans were the last team I needed and I searched a long time for this one. (Side note: I only count team names, not teams moving, as there are too many of those.)

Ryan is wearing #23, most notably worn by Anthony Davis, who played six seasons with the Pelicans, after one with the New Orleans Hornets. He has since played five seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Son of Buddy and twin of Rex, Rob has held positions with many NFL and college teams. Most recently, he is the senior defensive assistant with the Las Vegas Raiders. As for his connection to the Big Easy, he spent a few seasons as an assistant with the Saints.
