    I hate to harp on this again, but does anyone know if the numbers on some of these receivers are going to change? I mean, marque guys wearing 10, 11, 12, what kind of stuff is that. I hope we dont get to the point that guys start wearing numbers to single themselves out, ala what Warren Sapp said "no one sees our faces", so guys get numbers that are out there! Could you see AJ wearing 99, or Carr wearing 55, just so everyone on the field knows them? I hope this is just a preseason thing. AJ wore #15 for preseason, then switched to a traditional WR number, I hope these others do the same! :crazy:

    In the regular season, numbers are regulated based on position.

    Sorry i don't have a link, but I read somewhere that staring this year WR's may wear numbers 10-19 in addition to the traditional 80-89.

    The alternate number thing is not new, but the alternates can only be used if the primary numbers in the appropriate are used up.

    Rule 5, Section 1, Article 4.

    At least that's where it's discussed in my rule book.
