You gotta be careful, some of those guys might change numbers after camp or any possible cuts when numbers become available.

I just can't imagine that DJ won't try to change his number to 11 since it's tattooed on his freakin arm! What are the NFL rules about that now?

The NFL has rules about numbers relating to position. DJ cannot be 11.

Keyshawn wears 19... did they just change the rules to allow WR's to wear 10-19?

Keyshawn came into the league during a time when WR's were allowed to have whatever number they wanted. IIRC they changed the rule a couple years after he entered the league. Those that were in the league prior to the rule change weren't affected by it and could keep their number.

Parker still wears 18, right?

I thought they had to change his # for the games he played. Or maybe that was Richard Smith, I don't remember. :shrug:

I think for those that are on the regular 53man roster have to be within the rules when they were drafted into the league concerning their number.

Anyway, here is the rule.


Player Numbers by Position
(NFL Rule 5, Section 1, Article 4)

All players must wear numerals on their jerseys in accordance with Rule 5, Section 3, Article 3c (see NOTE 1), and such numerals must be by playing position as follows: quarterbacks, punters, and placekickers, 1-19 (and 10-19 for wide receivers if 80-89 are all otherwise assigned); running backs and defensive backs, 20-49; centers, 50-59 (60-79 if 50-59 unavailable); offensive guards and tackles, 60-79; wide receivers and tight ends, 80-89; defensive lineman, 60-79 (90-99 if 60-79 unavailable); and linebackers 50-59 (90-99 if 50-59 unavailable).

If a player changes his position during his playing career in the NFL and such change moves him out of a category specified above, he must be issued an appropriate new jersey number.

Any request to wear a number for a special position not specified above (e.g., H-back) must be made to the Commissioner.

During the preseason period when rosters are larger, the League will allow duplication and other temporary deviations from the numbering scheme specified above, but the rule must be adhered to for all players during the regular season and postseason. Clubs must make numbers available to adhere to the rule, even if it requires putting back into circulation a number that has been retired or withheld for other reasons. See 7-2-3 for reporting change of position. (Note 2)

NOTES:

5, 3, 3c has to do with the size and placement of the numerals
7, 2, 3 rules regarding notifying the referee of eligibility if wearing and ineligible number for a position. Basically, any player wearing an eligible number at a pass receiving position (running backs, tight ends, and wide receivers) can play any eligible pass receiving position without reporting to the referee. That is, running backs can line up as wide receivers or tight ends, and players wearing wide receiver and/or tight end numbers can line up in the backfield without having to report to the referee.

If he took the number 91, he'd just have to add a circle to his tattoo.

I was thinking 80 for sure. I'd guess 26 would be available before 24, because Bartee at least brings solid special teams coverage play to the table, Battle doesn't even do that.

Ahhhhaaa. The NFL changes rules like we wipe our butt.


They've got their numbers

Keen observers have noted several rookie receivers are wearing uniform numbers from 10-19 this season. Among them are the Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald (11), the Lions' Roy Williams (11), the Falcons' Michael Jenkins (12), the Broncos' Darius Watts (17), the Saints' Devery Henderson (19) and the Jaguars' Reggie Williams (11) and Ernest Wilford (19). What gives?

In the offseason, the NFL competition committee changed the rule that required receivers and tight ends to wear numbers in the 80s if they were available. Previously, Keyshawn Johnson was the only receiver allowed to wear a number in the teens -- Kelly Campbell wore No. 16 for the Vikings because no number in the 80s was available -- because he started wearing No. 19 before the league prohibited receivers from wearing lower numbers.

Many receivers wear low numbers in college, so they prefer to wear low numbers in the NFL. Young receivers also found many more options in the teens than in the 80s.
