    I'm glad hes back because Mike or Ted expressed how hard of a decision it was to let him go and stated they didn't want to let him go. Plus, I think he's going to a little spark to the return game.

    Can you tell me why WR are now wearing jersey's with numbers in the "10's"? I thought they had to wear numbers in the "80's".

    It all started with Keyshawn Johnson when he was with the Jets. They did not have anymore 80 numbers available therefore he was able to snag a number in the teens.

    I hated to see Bodiford get cut, although they had to do it under the circumstances. I'm glad they were able to get him back. Maybe it's destiny. The guy's got talent and a lot of heart. He may only be around until Koren Robinson comes back, though.

    You gotta admit, though, Woodson did a darn good job with the punt returns on Sunday. A couple of them were not easy punts to handle, but he not only handled them, he made a few guys miss and picked up some yardage. If Bodiford can do what Woodson can do, put him in there by all means, but if not, Woodson's still the guy.

    Thanks Z, I have noticed WR using the numbers since the 90's but I wasn't sure when the NFL allowed it. I thought at one time the player had to line up in on a wing like an H back.

    yah the evolution of the tight end position means teams were carrying more 80-89 numbers so they decided to let recievers wear the numbers 10-19. As far as i know, Centres can wear 50-59 numbers too (ala Mike Flanagan).

    So this is my understanding of the numbering system:

    0s--QB's, kickers, punters
    10's--QB's, kickers, punters, some WR's
    20s, 30s, 40s--DB's, RB's (including FB's)
    50s--LBs, centers
    60s, 70s--OL's, some DL's
    80s--TE's, WR's
    90s--DL's

    There are some exceptions (e.g., LB Hunter Hillenmeyer of the Bears wearing #92), but for the most part it holds true.

    I was at Wikipedia last nite looking at something else. Wandered over to the football section and they say that LB's CAN were #'s in the 90's as well.
    There break down is amlost the same as the one you listed here. At first I thought you just copied and pasted there info.

    Here's their breakdown:
    Uniform numbering
    In the NFL, ranges of uniform numbers are reserved for certain positions:

    1-19: Quarterbacks, wide receivers, kickers, and punters
    20-49: Running backs and defensive backs
    50-59: Centers and linebackers
    60-79: Offensive and defensive linemen
    80-89: Wide receivers and tight ends
    90-99: Defensive linemen and linebackers

    i suppose when you get some hybrid players such as Chris Cooley there are some exceptions, the one that confuses me is Julian Peterson LB of the seahawks who wears number 44
