KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI - APRIL 27: (L-R) Jalen Carter poses with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after being selected ninth overall by the Philadelphia Eagles during the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft at Union Station on April 27, 2023 in Kansas City, Missouri.

After free agency, the NFL draft, and some new NFL rules changes, there are a lot of new faces in the Eagles locker room. And those new faces will be wearing new jersey numbers. And the Eagles recently announced what those numbers will be.

The Eagles had a pretty busy off-season. Lots of guys leaving, and similarly many new guys coming in. Before the draft they added names like Rashaad Penny, Terrell Edmunds, Olamide Zaccheaus, Nicholas Morrow, Greedy Williams, and Marcus Mariota, among others. Then in the draft, they added Jalen Carter, Nolan Smith, Tyler Steen, Sydney Brown, Kelee Ringo, Tannker McKee, and Moro Ojomo. Plus there were Undrafted Free Agents like Eli Ricks and Ty Zentner. Not to mention the day 3 trade for D’Andre Swift.

And now, even more numbers are open to players, specifically the number 0. Which new Eagle grabbed the number 0? Which Eagles players are switching numbers? And what number will all of these new additions be wearing?

The Eagles finally released info on everyone’s new jersey numbers. From the drafted players, to veteran additions, to guys already on the team who wanted to change their number up. You can find out who is wearing what number below.

  • D'Andre Swift- 0

    The Eagles have been pushing for the number 0 to be allowed for a while. They finally got their way. And then the question since has been which Eagle player will wear it. Now we know. Philly’s own D’Andre Swift will be rocking the number 0 this season. Obviously since 0 only just became available, no other Eagle has ever worn it.

  • 3- Nolan Smith

    It feels appropriate that the Eagles’ 30th overall pick would wear the number 3. He wore 4 in college, but that currently belongs to Jake Elliott, so Smith adopted 3 instead. Zac Pascal wore 3 last year. Before that, it was worn by Mark Sanchez and Mike Kafka.

  • Marcus Mariota- 8

    Marcus Mariota has been wearing the number 8 since he was at Oregon. He gets it back with the Eagles this year. It was worn by Arryn Siposs last year, but he is changing it to 10. Before them, it was also the number of Chas Henry, Donnie Jones, and Luis Zendejas.

  • Aaryn Siposs- 10

    After signing Ty Zentner as a UDFA, Siposs may not be long for the Eagles. At the very least he will have to fight for his job. But he will be wearing a new number while doing so. He swapped to the number 10 after wearing 8 the past two seasons. Gardner Minshew wore it last season, and other notable Eagles to wear it before that include DeSean Jackson, Koy Detmer, and Tommy Thompson.

  • Tanner McKee- 10

    Uh oh, we have competition for the number 10. If both Siposs and McKee are wearing it, it doesn’t bode well for one of their chances.

  • Olamide Zaccheaus- 13

    The Eagle’s newest weapon in the slot adopted number 13. Last year it was worn by Cameron Dicker “The Kicker”, and then later by Brett Kern. Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff, and Travis Fulgham have also rocked the number 13 in the past. So hopefully his time with the Eagles will go better than it did for those WRs.

  • Trey Sermon-22

    Sermon is also changing his number. He wore 34 last year but is making the switch to 22. Though he is another guy who won’t hold onto that number long. The Eagles RB room is very crowded. And he is not at the top of the list of people to fit in. Marcus Epps wore it last year. Other Eagles to wear it include Sidney Jones, Duce Staley, and of course Asante Samuel.

  • Rashaad Penny- 23

    The other new back in Philly, Rashaad Penny, is going to wear 23. Which opened up with CJ Gardner Johnson walking away in free agency. Before CJ and now Rashaad wore it, Rodney McLeod, Ryan Moates, and the great Troy Vincent wore the number 23.

  • Terrell Edmunds- 26

    In Pittsburgh, Edmunds wore 34. But even though 34 has been vacated, he is still making the switch to 26. Last year it was worn by Miles Sanders. Before that, Jay Ajayi and Lito Sheppard both wore it.

  • Justin Evans- 30

    Evans will be competing for the final backup Safety spot most likely. If he wins it, he will be wearing 30. A number that has not gotten a ton of use. Corey Clement was the last guy to wear it that actually contributed to the team.

  • Kelee Ringo- 37

    Ringo wore 5 in college. Obviously, that number is not available with the Eagles. So instead he will take a number we haven’t seen many notable Eagles wear. 37. Sean Considine rocked it for a bit. Marcus Epps wore it when he first joined the Eagles. But other than that, it has not been a popular number unless you go back to the 70s and 80s.

  • Greedy Williams- 38

    Greedy Williams will take Josh Jobe’s number from last year, 38. Before him, the much-hated Orlando Scandrick wore it.

  • Eli Ricks- 39

    UDFA Corner Eli Ricks will wear 39. It’s not a number with much significant history. But what was interesting is that Sheldon Brown wore it at first, before switching to what he is more well known for, 24. Ricks of course has to win a spot first though.

  • Nicholas Morrow- 41

    The replacement for Kyzir White, Nicholas Morrow, will wear 41. Which was last worn by Anthony Harris. Other notable Eagles to wear 41 include Ronald Darby and Keith Byars.

  • Sydney Brown- 43

    Sydney Brown will be donning Darren Sproles old number. 43. It was worn by Kyzir White last season. And before Sproles or White, it was worn by All-Pro Fullback Leonard Weaver.

  • Mekhi Garner- 46

    The other UDFA Corner the Eagles brought in, Makhi Garner, will wear 46. Reed Blankenship wore 46 at first last year but eventually switched to 32 once he earned a roster spot.

  • Ty Zenter- 49

    49 is an interesting number for a Punter. Zentner represents the first significant competition they have ever brought in for Arryn Siposs. The Kansas State punter with the big leg has a chance to make the roster. If he does, he may change his number. But for now, he will wear 49. Alex Singleton wore it last year, before that Boston Scott wore it when he first joined the team.

  • Tyler Steen- 57

    The guy who will be competing with Cam Jurgens for the RG job is taking TJ Edwards’ old number. 59 was also once worn by Chris Gocong.

  • Ben VanSumeren- 57

    Being given the same number as Tyler Steen is not a good sign for VanSumeran’s chances. The freaky athletic linebacker did not play very well on the field in college. If he does make it, it will be with a different number. Most likely though, he is not making the cut.

  • Moro Ojomo- 72

    The Eagles 7th round pick, will be wearing Linval Joseph’s number. 72. But it has even more significant history before either of them. It was worn by Halopoulivaati Vaitai in the Eagles first-ever Super Bowl win, and of course also by the legend Tra Thomas.

  • Joseph Ngata- 86

    Being given Zach Ertz’s number, 86, may say the Eagles are not too confident in Joseph Ngata making the roster. It will be hard for him to do so given how crowded the WR room is. 86 has also been worn by Reggie Brown and Fred Barnett.

  • Jadon Haselwood- 87

    Like with Ngata, it’s unlikely Haselwood, who played with Jalen Hurts at Oklahoma, will crack the roster. But if he does he would be the first Eagles player since Brent Celek to wear 87. Before Celek, you’d have to go back to Todd Pinkston.

  • Kentavius Street- 97

    With Javon Hargrave in San Francisco, 97 was open for Street to take. Before them, it was worn by Malik Jackson, Destiny Vaeao, and Cullen Jenkins.

  • Jalen Carter- 98

    And finally, the 9th overall pick takes number 98. He wore 88 in college but will make the switch to 98. Robert Quinn wore it last year, but you may not have known that since he never actually did anything on the field. Before them, Connor Barwin once rocked the number 98, and then way back in the 60s, Mike Ditka once wore it.
