jeez, I can't believe he hasn't gotten a number yet. I know it's not a big deal, but I hope he wears 10 so I can get some more miles out of my Trent Green jersey (if I can figure out how to change the name on the back)

#0 would be awesome. Is it legal in the NFL?

There are places that will swap name plates for you, although I dont know why you would ditch the Green name. Why wouldnt you just get a new one? Green was a pretty good player for you guys

I have never done it, but have been told many places that sell throwback and game jerseys offer this service. Due to players changing teams from what I have read and heard there is a growing market for this and companies are cashing in.

Personally I think it would be awesome.

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.



In summary:

Position(s) Primary Alternate
QB, P, K 1-19
RB, DB 20-49
C 50-59 60-79
G, T 60-79
WR 80-89 10-19
TE 80-89
DL (NT/DT/DE) 60-79 90-99
LB 50-59 90-99

This is what I want to find out as well. I have a Green and a Dante Hall jersey (Bowe) I need switched out. Give me some names people! I've heard people say it could be done numerous times, but nobody has ever offered a concrete explanation of where.

That's sort of the weird feeling I have too. It seems very strange that he doesn't have a number yet, but other guys signed after him do and his name continuous to come up in trade talks. We shall see.

That is not that bad of play! The guy put up some good numbers one year playing behind the greatest offense of ALLTIME! His stock is huge even though the Pats gave him up for less than a 2nd rounder. Why not work a trade if you get a big return? Yeah he kept the Caddy on the road but who really knows if it was the driver or the car? If somebody offers the house you would not be stupid to think about it.

I wont be either. It would be a pretty damn smart move to trade for MC, then draft a QB at #3, having 2 hot commodities that other teams covet.

I really hope the Cassel trade rumors are just that...rumors. Thigpen is simply not the answer, and a rookie QB be it Stafford or Sanchez will struggle for the next 2 years before they become comfortable.

Cassel is in the prime of his career, and has some NFL experience with success.

That being said, does ANYONE KNOW THE HOLD UP WITH HIS ASSIGNED NUMBER? Are the talking with Dawson or is Cassel just that undecided? Inquiring minds would really like to know!

Either he is waiting for permission from Len Dawson to wear #16, the Chiefs don't want him to wear #10 because of Green, or they are still debating a possible trade involving Denver which would also explain why there have been no contract negotiations.

Are you serious? You do realize we won't be contending for the next 2 years right? And after those 2 years Stafford will be 24 years old, still 3 years younger than Cassel will be for the first game of this season.

Cassel is the final player on the roster without a number. Copper is wearing 10 and Boiman is no longer listed. Babin is also off the roster.

Well, clearly they don't since they let Hagans the Option Midget wear his number last year, but they damn well should. Green was a great quarterback. He led the best offense in football for three years until Geathers scrambled his brains.

It continues to amaze me how many idiots there are out there who don't appreciate what he did for this team.

IT IS NOT GREEN'S FAULT THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE A DEFENSE.

Yeah I didn't really that that was it, especially with Carl and Vermiel being long gone. I was just throwing it out there since 10 was Cassels HS and College number I believe. I'm surprised he didn't pick that since he obviously can't have 16...
