Several Steelers Players Issued New Jersey Numbers Following Saturday Cuts


Now that the Pittsburgh Steelers have established their 53 man roster and 10 man practice squad following the Saturday cuts, several players have been issued new jersey numbers.

Cornerback B.W. Webb, who was claimed off of waivers from the Dallas Cowboys this past Friday, will wear No. 39. During the preseason, cornerback Isaiah Green wore that number, but he was one of 22 players released on Saturday.

Rookie nose tackle Daniel McCullers, who shared No. 74 with guard Chris Hubbard during the preseason, will now wear No. 92, which of course was worn several years by recently retired outside linebacker James Harrison.

As far as number changes on the Steelers practice squad go, linebacker Howard Jones will now wear No. 44, while Nick Williams gets No. 65 and tackle Alejandro Villanueva gets No. 78.

About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
  • KenNYSteelerFan

    Too soon to give up 92 I’m my opinion.

  • Kyle Owens

    I was really hoping Martavis Bryant would change his number.

    fangupo wore it last year…

    I liked the 74. Too bad.

  • Steelers12328882

    So is Dri Archer officially listed as a WR, because I’m pretty sure he can’t wear #13 as a RB?

  • SteelCitysFinest

    Yes he is.

  • 2443scott

    man put the pressure on mccullers by giveing him that number its to fresh in everyones minds …i wonder what he would do as a outside lber i wonder if one guy can stop him from walking his guy back to qb …it must be nice not being a coach and thinking up things guys can do …..bet tomlin would laugh at that choice

  • Matthew Marczi

    He’s listed as “WR/RB”.

  • Matthew Marczi

    Try now.

  • Steelers12328882

    He should list himself as a QB/RB/WR and then take his #1. NFL rules on number restrictions are ridiculous.

    i agree his number choice was kind of wack

    When I saw the head line “Several Steelers Players Issued New Jersey Numbers Following Saturday Cuts”; My initial thought was that the Jets and/or Giants had poached some of our prospects.

  • JAMESH

    Honest beyond necessity! I had already moved on another story before I got it.

  • Madi

    McCullers is much more of a 92 than a 74 anyway. Good move.

  • JAMESH

    He should be allowed to have a 3 digit jersey number.

    “357” would look good on him.

  • JAMESH

    Or “757”
