Cowboys Announce Number Assignments & Changes for New, Returning Players

Yesterday the Cowboys confirmed assignments for five new players and changes for eight returning players ahead of the . With this year's draft soon to come, current talent is no doubt wanting to claim their numbers of choice before the next influx of rookies join the organization.

Don't worry, none of the marquee Cowboys have changed numbers so far. All of your , , , , and jerseys are safe for now.

Here is the list of returning players who are changing numbers in 2022:

The biggest name of this bunch is Anthony Brown, the only full-time starter on the list. He appears to be joining a movement toward single-digit numbers among Dallas' cornerbacks with Joseph and Lewis. Trevon Diggs, who wears #7, appears to have started a trend.

Along with these changes for current talent, five new Cowboys were assigned jersey numbers for the upcoming season:

Fowler is going back to #56, his original number when coming into the NFL, after playing in a #6 jersey last year for the Falcons. Washington will hopefully add some shine back to the #83, which is most recently remembered in association with .

An interesting note from this bunch is giving the #94, previously hallowed ground given its legacy with and , to a relative nobody in DT Josiah Bronson. An undrafted in 2021, Bronson was signed by the Cowboys in January after spending most of the year on the Saints and Browns practice squads.

Cowboys fan since Ice Bowl. Wilson was a keeper. Brought versatility and options to the offense. Offensive line is priority. To protect Dak and give tailbacks a chance. Must stay healthy to allow continuity and cohesion on o-line. Same old thing.
