The new ruled proposed by the Chiefs now allows expansion of jersey numbers available to players:
— QB: 1-19
— WR: 1-49, 80-89
— RB: 1-49, 80-89
— TE: 1-49, 80-89
— DB: 1-49
— LB: 1-59, 90-99
— OL: 50-79
— DL: 50-79, 90-99
With the news that this is definitely happening, players around the league have been hinting at switching their numbers.
Any Eagles player looking to immediately switch numbers will have to make sure it’s worth it financially thanks to a rule that says the player must buy all remaining inventory of unsold jerseys with the player’s current number.
That player must purchase the jerseys at retail prices from the Fanatics supply.
If a player chooses to give the notice to change his number for the 2022 NFL season, he won’t have to pay anything.
Vikings star running back Dalvin Cook changed his mind when he realized a jersey switch would cost him over $1 million.
Here are five Eagles who would have a huge check to write.

The Eagles star cornerback may want a single-digit, but his status as one of the NFL’s most popular cornerbacks could cost a hefty check.

Sanders looks super smooth in his No. 26 jerseys and as one of the NFL’s youngest and most popular running backs, he’d have to cut a huge check.

Hurts is switching to jersey No. 1 and unless he gave the NFL early notice because a psychic let him know that Cameron Johnston wouldn’t be returning to the Eagles, he’ll likely have to buy back his jersey which has been a huge seller.
The Eagles’ newest playmaker at safety, Harris wore a single digit in high school and during his time at Virginia. A switch could cost the Pro Bowler.
