Which NFL players are changing jersey numbers? Track every switch around the league

This offseason, NFL owners approved a proposal changing how NFL jersey numbers will be assigned. While quarterbacks, kickers and punters will continue to wear Nos. 1-19, these are the new regulations for other positions:

  • Running backs, tight ends, fullbacks, H-backs, receivers: Nos. 1-49 and 80-89.
  • Defensive backs: Nos. 1-49.
  • Linebackers: Nos. 1-59 and 90-99.
  • Offensive linemen: Nos. 50-79.
  • Defensive linemen: Nos. 50-79 and 90-99.

This undoubtedly will lead to some players changing numbers, but not to fret: We've got you covered with a team-by-team breakdown of all the switches.
