Observations on New Patriots’ Uniform Numbers

-by DNOMN8R314

Yes, you get a uniform number article. It’s June; what can I say.

This will only cover free agent signings and other non-rookie acquisitions, as the rookies do not have official numbers yet.

8 – Jamie Collins: Obviously linebackers cannot wear single-digit numbers once the regular season begins, but for the preseason, I think Collins’ collegiate #8 will look good. It reminds me a little of Bryan Cox wearing #0 during the 2001 preseason, although the two are very different types of linebacker. Cox ended up wearing #51 during the regular season after Mike Vrabel switched from #51 to #50; Collins’ old #91 is currently worn by third-year defensive end Deatrich Wise Jr. My prediction: Wise switches to #99 (had Ufomba Kamalu not switched to #94, that would have been my guess) and Collins gets his old digits back.

15 – Dontrelle Inman: This is the number I thought N’Keal Harry would take, as it’s the number in his Twitter handle, but Inman got first dibs. If Inman doesn’t make the squad, I think Harry will end up with the number anyway. Either way, somebody will have a chance to become the second #15 to catch a touchdown pass from Tom Brady, as only Chris Hogan has done so while wearing that number. (I’m still waiting for a #16 – no player wearing that number has ever caught any pass from Brady, much less a touchdown.)

25 – Terrence Brooks: Brooks continues the trend of Patriots defensive backs wearing #25. In fact, the word “trend” may be an understatement; in the Patriots’ 60-year history, the number has never been worn by a running back, as all 16 players to wear the number in the regular season wearing a New England uniform have been defensive backs.

38 – Brandon Bolden: It’s nice to see Bolden back in his old number. Kenjon Barner briefly wore the number last year, and his short Patriots tenure was in the news this week when he announced he’d received a New England Super Bowl ring – which he gave to his father.

47 – Jakob Johnson: The Patriots have regularly given #47to backup tight ends and fullbacks, both in the preseason and regularly season. Johnson follows Michael Hoomanawanui, Glenn Gronkowski, and Jacob Hollister in the number, while UDFA tight end Andrew Beck wore #47 at Texas. With Johnson wearing those digits, Beck will have to pick a different number.

74 – Shilique Calhoun: I’m surprised Calhoun is wearing #74; not only is he doubling the number (with third-year OL Cole Croston), but there are five numbers available in the 90s (90, 92, 94, 96, 99), and Calhoun wore a 90s number (91) in Oakland. Additionally, Calhoun is listed as an outside linebacker instead of a defensive end, making this choice even more surprising.

75 – David Parry: While Parry is also doubling his number (with Ted Karras), and my lots-of-90s-numbers-available observation still applies, Parry has only wore a number in the 90s once, during one of his three 2018 stints with the Minnesota Vikings. There are a few unworn numbers in the 60s – excluding temporary rookie numbers – and a couple in the 50s; I’m a little surprised Parry didn’t select one of those instead of doubling.

77 – Michael Bennett: Bennett has always worn a 70s number in his career – 71 with Tampa Bay, 72 as a Seahawk, and 77 as an Eagle. With 71 donned by Danny Shelton and 72 by tackle Dan Skipper, 77 was the only non-doubled number in the 70s available (note the word “was”). Assuming he keeps the number, he’ll be the first defensive lineman to wear #77 as a Patriots since notorious draft bust Kenneth Sims.

77 – Cedrick Lang: Of course Lang selected #77, doubling with Bennett, instead of a free number in the 60s. Under Bill Belichick, #77 has been a very good offensive lineman number, worn by Mike Compton, Nick Kaczur, Nate Solder, and Trent Brown.

82 – Maurice Harris: I can’t be the only one who usually thinks tight end instead of wide receiver when considering #82, but Harris has selected the number. Of the four players who have caught a TD pass from Brady while wearing #82, three (Daniel Graham, Alge Crumpler, Matt Lengel) have been tight ends; only Keshawn Martin has worn the number as a wide receiver and caught a TD12. If Harris’ training camp and preseason continue on the trend from OTAs, he could easily join that crew.

83 – Matt LaCosse: Wes Welker has been the most notable #83 in Patriots history, yet now LaCosse becomes the second consecutive tight end (after Dwayne Allen) to wear the number. Interestingly, Martellus Bennett passed on it because in the Patriots’ font he considered it a wide receiver’s number; now it’s returning in frequency to the tight end position.

84 – Benjamin Watson: Like Bolden, Watson is reclaiming his old number after wearing #82 during his tours in Cleveland, New Orleans, Baltimore, and New Orleans again.

86 – Nick Thurman: Defensive players don’t wear numbers in the 80s. I have no idea why Thurman, a defensive lineman, has one, but for the preseason, it’s interesting and I like it.

88 – Demaryius Thomas: While #88 is considered a high-quality wide receiver number, the Patriots have seen the most productivity out of these digits when worn by tight ends. Only Terry Glenn (one) and Sam Aiken (two) have caught TD12s, while Christian Fauria, Mahty Bennett, Scott Chandler, Kyle Brady, and Matthew Mulligan have combined for 26.

98 – Mike Pennel: After Trey Flowers’ departure for New Orleans, the Patriots’ top free agent signing swipes the number for his own use. I was hoping Pennel would take #99, as New England hasn’t had a solid player in that number since Mike Wright, but he reclaimed his number from the Jets instead. So be it.

Suns trade Josh Jackson. Amazing. Two #4 picks in a row and nothing. Good thing they had the #1 pick in 18 – Deandre Ayton is solid

Looking back at 16 & 17 drafts, the same 4 teams had the top picks

2016:
1. Sixers – Ben Simmons
2. Lakers – Brandon Ingram
3. Celtics – Jaylen Brown
4. Suns – Dragan Bender

2017:
1. Sixers – Markelle Fultz
2. Lakers – Lonzo Ball
3. Celtics – Jason Tatum
4. Suns – Josh Jackson

They sent TJ Warren and #32 out to free up $11M. They took back Dario Saric and moved from #6 to #11. They then moved a 2020 1st to get #24 (Ty Jerome) and took on Baynes effectively wiping out the money they saved ditching Warren. Then they signed Rubio for $17M a season while having a $9M cap hold on Kelly Oubre– which effectively would put them $3M over the cap. New Orleans moved down 4 spots in the draft, dumped a $12M salary and got a mid first and future first (or 2 2nds). Phoenix moved down 5… Read more »

From Blue Bell….

During production, our half gallons are flipped upside down and sent to a hardening room where the ice cream freezes to the lid creating a natural seal. The lids are frozen tightly to the carton. Any attempt at opening the product should be noticeable.

Replying to @NFL @AaronRodgers12 and 2 others
Y’all crazy! Peyton is #1 no doubt! Can’t go by rings. The things he did on two different teams are mind blowing. Tom Brady is clear cut #2. Tom has played in a system that works (no doubt he’s been special), Peyton WAS the system.

Pollard tackles AH, and AH takes his life…

Over the last two seasons no QB has more big time throws than Tom Brady on 3rd and 4th down.

One of the highest average depths of target and past the sticks percentage on those throws, too.

Probably more than the system in NE…

and of course, some of the replies were about how he just throws checkdowns and the receiver gains all the yards (have to remind them to read the 2nd line of the tweet…not that they can comprehend it).

I feel like Argentina is playing better against a better level of competition. Maybe they’re one of those teams that plays up/down to their level of competition. Also, I’m not sure what these Barcelona fans are complaining about but Coutinho has been the best player on the pitch. If they don’t want him, we’ll be happy to take him back at Liverpool! 🙂

Nike just announced they’re releasing high-tops with East Pakistan decals from the 1960s. The entirety of Bangladesh is, reportedly, extremely unhappy with this and have begun tearing down all Nike factories in the country.

Good. Nike shoes suck. Overpriced and poor quality

The first soccer cleats I owned were The Nikes. They sucked in winter and wet weather. After a high ankle sprain, I ditched them to Adidas cleats and never looked back at Nike again.

Nike should probably rename themselves as Nuke, considering their marketing fiascos.

Warriors just stole Willie Cauley-Stein.

If Kawhi goes to Clippers as a package deal with Green, the Clippers could move Gallo to the Mavs. The Lakers would be left picking over scraps.

Two guys vs the World (West) is not the greatest situation. Lakers had two options, spread their money into 3-4 guys that could reasonably round out the core or chase Kawhi. Every hour more players come off the board and we’re already down to mainly exception and minimum guys. They’re now all in on Kawhi.

I hope Kawhi goes to the Clips. I like watching the boy play. Would suck to have to watch Lakers games on the reg to see him

If I’m the Lakers and Kawhi wants to go to LAC, I take Gallo on myself. Get a pick back and maintain options moving forward. Then flip him, Kuzma and the pick for someone later on.

Admittedly a sign and trade for Toronto (involving Green) could be difficult , but would imagine the Raptors could have interest in that. Mavs would seem to excellent fit with Gallo playing a stretch 4 between Doncic and Porzingis and them having precisely the amount of money to fit him. If Kawhi does go the Lakers Mavs and Raptors are in a bidding war for Green.. Doubt Clippers would include a pick and send him to the Lakers if there were other suitors. But even the Lakers were the only ones, it’d be an odd fit as he plays pretty… Read more »

I might have bought a pair of those. Next time you go buy something you want, and some idiot prevents that, don’t be as bothered as I am

So.. you’re pissed because you can’t buy the ‘colonial’ edition Nikes? That’s what it takes to make you mad?

Of course the money I would have spent on those shoes can rightfully go towards reparations

Slave era flag. I guess some people are offended by it. If so and Nike pulled it, I don’t see what the big deal is.

I get it.. but I don’t get why Kaep is being so petty about it, and/or why Nike listened. Also.. Kaep doesn’t even vote, and he is one of the laziest activists I’ve ever seen.

On the flip side, for those who are soooo upset about not being able to buy these shoes, they are more than welcome to make their own shoes with a colonial flag on it.
