See All of the Numbers for the Jets Free Agents, Rookies and Changes Leading Up to the 2021 Season


The Jets have released the jersey numbers for their free-agent signings and rookies.

QB Zach Wilson, who wore No. 11 and No. 1 at BYU, will wear No. 2 with the Jets. Fellow first-round pick OL Alijah Vera-Tucker and second-round pick WR Elijah Moore will wear their collegiate numbers -- 75 and 8, respectively. Former USC OL Chuma Edoga, who wore No. 75 the past two seasons, changed to No. 70 and QB Mike White changed his number from 8 to 5.

"I'm just mixing it up, doing something new," Wilson said at rookie minicamp. "I like any single-digit number, I think they're cool. I was the second pick, so that's a good reason to switch it up. Not much reason behind it but I just think it's a cool number."

WR Corey Davis, one of the first free-agent signings, will continue to wear No. 84, which is the same number he's worn since college at Western Michigan.
