    Well not yet. He is changing numbers to #87 until he gets cut.

    It kept Martin hanging on the roster so long he may hope he will hang on the roster much longer than he should.


    Also Hodge has switched from #55 to #52.

    Packers.com has the story.

    Switching numbers
    Two Packers are changing their uniform numbers for the upcoming season.
    Wide receiver Robert Ferguson, who has worn No. 89 for his first six seasons with the Packers, is switching to No. 87.

    Meanwhile, linebacker Abdul Hodge, who wore No. 55 last season as a rookie, is changing to No. 52. Hodge wore No. 52 in high school in Florida and in college at Iowa, and it's the number his younger brother, Elijah, wears as a linebacker for the Wisconsin Badgers.

    I was all excited when I read the title. 87 is a great number for Fergie. The number of underacheivers it seems

    Robert Brooks wore 87 and was not an underachiever. He had to call it quites early because of injury.

    Probably more to do with Ferggy wanting a "Fresh start" without the baggage of his injury history.

    Falling short of getting that fresh start with a new team, he decides to do it with a new number. If I'm not mistaken, Jerry Porter did the same thing with the Raiders this year,
