Jets Release Updated Jersey Numbers

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. It was also the same number his late brother, Titus, wore. Titus had a two stints with the Green & White and wore No. 84. TE Ryan Griffin changed to No. 86. WR Keelan Cole, who wore 84 with Jacksonville before signing with the Jets, will wear No. 88.
