    51 is a good number for Mayo. Most LBs wearing that number have a reputation for being nasty.

    51 is a good number for jerod, especially if he wants to market himself and pick up endorsements in the near future. having a "attractive" number is important in that regard.

    #12 Jersey

    #98 for Crabel - Isn't that number more for DEs or NT than LB?

    No, 90s are fairly common. I'm more surprised by 47 for Redd... I didn't know LBs could wear 40s. Maybe they can't and we just ran out for now though.

    #12 Jersey

    Bingo!

    The same when Colvin's number went to Hobson

    Its almost guaranteed when a former player is gone he is not coming back if that Jersey number is now used by another player.

    I can't remember it ever happening in the NFL - Does anyone?

    Name me some NE linebackers who wore #90-#99?

    I can't remember any off hand - or at least players that were not a bigger part of the team than just TC fodder.

    Sometimes the player gets to choose, sometimes not.

    For example, Gostkowski mentioned that when he arrived in Foxboro, they gave him the choice of 3 or 5.

    So are these the #'s they will be wearing in the regular season also or just for training camp? The reason I ask is cause i remember Moss wearing #6 during training camp then once the regular season started he was wearing #81.
