NFL positional jersey numbering policy
Does anyone know what the league's policy is for issuing jersey numbers by position? It just seems odd to see wide receivers (Chad Jackson) wearing numbers in the teens. Apparently this isn't just a training camp thing made necessary by all the extra bodies. I like knowing what position a guy is supposed to be playing by his jersey number; this comes in handy especially while watching other teams.
The way it's supposed to be as I understand it (traditionally):
1-19: quarterbacks, kickers and punters
20-49: halfbacks, fullbacks, cornerbacks, safeties
50-59: linebackers and centers
60-69: guards, linebackers
70-79: offensive and defensive tackles
80-89: tight ends, wide receivers, defensive ends
90-99: defensive linemen, sometimes linebackers
