    Number restrictions are pointless anyway, IMO.

      Do the people complaining out keeping things like they were realize that there used to be no number restrictions.

        4 WRs and 3 TEs is only 7 numbers. Even if a team kept 5 WRs and 3 TEs (which would be almost impossible) that is still only 8. They managed to keep WRs in the 80s prior 96 with Keyshawn

        What?

        The Seahawks keep atleast 5 receivers and 3 TE's almost every year. I can only remember them keeping fewer than that once in the last 10 years or so. 6 WR's and 3 TE's is a very real possibility this year.

        Far from being "almost impossible."

            Yeah but you know you want to see a wide receiver finally wearing number 1.

              almost impossible? Atlanta didn't have much of a passign game and had 5 WR's and 3 TE's last year o nthe roster...

                OK, this is the thread to discuss my idea for a numbering rule. It combines the all-inclusiveness of the NFL's rule with the broadness of the NCAA's (linebackers & o-line are tied for the fewest ranges allowed with 3).

                Offensive skill: 1-49, 80-99
                Offensive line: 50-79
                Defensive line: 50-99
                Linebackers: 30-59
                Secondary: 1-49*
                Kicking specialists: 1-39

                * - No college DB's, to my knowledge, use 50+ anyway.

                Under this rule, Brian Urlacher, for example, would be allowed to play linebacker and use his college # (44).

                NFC North right ends are shaking in their cleats.

                Or @ least they had better be.

                  or a RB wearing #5... I would prefer to keep the # system but allow WR's and RB's wear #'s in the teens and singles

                      not bad but I'd wanna see it broken down better:

                      QB - 1-19
                      RB - 1-49
                      FB - 1-49
                      WR - 1-19, 80-89
                      TE - 40-49, 80-89
                      OL - 50-79
                      DL - 60-79, 90-99
                      LB - 40-59
                      DB - 10-49
                      K/P - 1-19
                      LS - 00

                        I like that breakdown.

                          I like the way college works it. They should just make the pro's like that. Dlineman in the 80s, one of the best players usually wear #1, RBs 1-49. LBs in the 30s, and best of all...kickers with 99.

                            That would be a great system IMO. Not quite a free for all but still some flexibility for players to keep a number from HS to the pros.

                                (the only Wide Receivers on our roster that don't wear a number in the teens are Michael Lewis, David Patten, and Jamal Jones.)
                                Colston with 12 is def differnt
