Earlier this week, the New England Patriots formally began organized team activities and with it came a list of updated jersey numbers that included both signed and newly signed veterans. The rookies will have their jersey numbers assigned at a later date according to the Patriots.
The list of numbers was revealed by way of a mock album back cover created by the Patriots media team.
Take a look at the full list below.
Back in April, NFL owners passed a new, relaxed rule that now allows for numbers 1-49 to be worn by tight ends, wide receivers, running backs and defensive backs.
As evident by the list above, a few Patriots took immediate advantage of the changes.
In prior seasons, only quarterbacks, kickers and punters were permitted to wear single digit jersey numbers.
