    I've heard nothing from the Patriots, but in a twist of irony, Vince Young of the Titans has been assigned his Wonderlic score number.

    Young is #10 it seems, from Titans official website. His Wonderlic score was 7.

    Wasn't Chad Jackson petitioning the league office about the new WR number restrictions? He said that his number 8 had a special meaning to him from a past tragedy or something, I think. Maybe that is the hold-up.

    It changed in the middle of the day from #1 to #24. My guess is that they wanted to get as many jerseys up there as quickly as possible and filled the numbers in later. I bet tommorrow they'll have Leinart jerseys up there now that he's on the Cardinals website holding up a #7 and add the Pats rookies as soon as they figure out what numbers they want.

    He's petitioning the league to get #5, but rules are that he needs something in the 20-40's and Jackson has to be in the teens or 80's. Jackson doesn't have much to choose from if he doesn't want a teen number though: 85, 86, 88 and 89 are the only ones I think are open (correct me if I'm wrong). I doubt either gets their single digit numbers. Edge tried for #5 coming out of college and got denied. You know that the league isn't going to break the rule for just anyone, cause it would just open the floodgates (think of all the wideouts who want #1).

    #89 is retired.

    #88 makes the most sense.

    89 is retired. There's a good chance 81 could be open by the end of training camp.

    Believe me, I would be ecstatic if he decided to make something of himself.

    Same here... but don't count on it. Bethel just doesn't get it.

    I thought the numbers weren't set until after training camps? Didn't we have some #a's(ex-10a, or 15a) and such until after cuts? Anyone know how this works?

    Wow, 30 is a great score. I think Brady had a 32.
