NUMBERS DON’T LIE

By Marc Lawrence — This week, The Athletic celebrated the greatest players to wear each jersey number across multiple sports. The most important players can have their numbers retired, making them off-limits to future generations. No one will ever again wear No. 7 for the Denver Broncos, No. 32 for the Cleveland Browns, No. 34 for the Chicago Bears and a range of other numbers deemed sacred throughout the NFL. Fans with even cursory knowledge of league history need not ask why. To streamline the process and make it more relevant to recent generations, its national NFL writers limited the time period to the Super Bowl era, which began in 1966. A few players whose careers straddled that cutoff made or missed the cut based on what we felt made the most sense (i.e. – don’t look to find Jim Brown’s name on this list, but you’ll want to throw up when you find who filled his place in the Super Bowl era instead). Click here to see each of the top 100 numbers assigned.
