Jersey numbers announced for new Cowboys players

The have assigned jersey numbers to four of their newest acquisitions, some of which we have seen recently on former players.

Although recently told the world they haven't ruled out a possible return, he would need a new number if we were to see him back.

Stephon Gilmore

will take No. 21 to the other side of the ball. A number Zeke held for seven seasons as the starting .

We have seen that the Jones family doesn't like to retire jersey numbers. No. 21 was also worn by one the greatest ever to play this game, , and he was holding down the in the mid-to-late 90s.

Hopefully, Gilmore can give the Cowboys a solid year or two and bring one of those titles back to Dallas. This defense might be legendary.

Brandin Cooks

As for the offensive side of the ball, will take No. 3. The jersey worn by cornerback , a this year.

Thus, if re-signed, another player must find a new number. Brown wore No. 30 before making the switch last season.

I was hoping Gilmore would take the single-digit number instead of Cooks, but either way, the walking 1000-yard receiver will look good catching passes in Dallas.

Ronald Jones

Running back , who the Cowboys signed last week, will wear No. 32. The last time we saw a Cowboy wear this number was from cornerback .

Walk Garrison also wore that number when carrying the rock for Dallas from the 1960s to the early 70s.

A signing maybe folks didn't see or have yet to hear about is offensive lineman . He was only signed for depth, and he will wear No. 71. He only appeared in two games for the Falcons last season.

Expect much of No. 71 on the sideline in 2023 for Dallas.

That is the number won last season, but the 41-year-old is currently a free agent, and I highly doubt that if he returns for his 18th season, it will be with the Cowboys.

I know this isn't the most eliciting news, but it is an solid update so we know which numbers to look out for in 2023.

The agreed on Tuesday to now allow teams to wear No. 0. Those close to the team say has already jumped on the train by asking the team to make the switch.

The draft is quickly approaching along with workouts, more numbers for rookies and are sure to follow.
