I'm glad you brought this up.

I was under the impression that WR could only take a 10-19 number if all the 80's were taken. Since, as you say, 82 and 89 are open, surely Mathis has no choice but to change to one of these?

I believe they can request a number from the NFL if they wish.

What number did Mathis wear in college?

Anyway, I am assuming Mathis had to take #13, because Miller and Swinton had #82 and #89 locked up, until they were cut.

i believe 2 years ago the NFL changed the rule that WRs can wear 10-19 if they wish, even if a number in the 80s is available

#3 was his college number yes. And the rule "was" changed 2 years ago that they can wear 10-19 even with numbers in the 80's available.

It would be hard to have all the numbers in the 80's taken. A team would have to have 10 WR/TE's on thier roster.

Not if you take IR, PUP and PS into consideration.

No that is his number and would have been his number when he came into the NFL(because he wanted the number and didn't want to be like every other WR out there) but he would have been suspended by the NFL because some of some rule stating that recievers numbers have to be in the 80's. That rule has been changed in the last 2 years.

What you should be more concerned about is his hammy since he had to leave practice again yesterday (because of tightness). I hope this doesn't become a chronic thing with him. This is the second time in a month.

Is PB the only player besides Mathis we've got for kick-off/punt returns? If
so, we're gonna be real thin there in the event Mathis is injured. I don't even
like the idea in the first place of a starting CB who came at a pretty high price to us being used in this capacity.

It is. They made the rule about players can have a 10-19 or 80 - 89 number last year so about half the rookies ot number 11 (Boldin, Roy, Reggie Williams, Jenkins). Burress also changes his number to 17 upon moving to the Giants. I guess the 80's arent cool anymore . . .

I'm still shocked that Reggie Swinton didn't make the team.

Hollings can be used on kickoff returns and Gaffney on punt returns in emergency situations.
