In addition to safety Jim Leonhard going from jersey No. 45 to No. 36, four other players have also changed their respective numbers.
Per the team —
- RB Ronnie Hillman — No. 21 (Formerly No. 34)
- DB Duke Ihenacho — No. 33 (No. 39)
- LB Steven Johnson — No. 53 (No. 41)
- OL C.J. Davis — No. 54 (No. 71)
The numbers above became available after the Broncos waived/released nineteen players last week in order to meet the 53-man roster limit.
Among the players who switched numbers are Inhenacho, who is on the practice squad and Hillman—a flashy rookie running back out of San Diego State—who is the only one likely to see much playing time this season.
We’ll get our first look at these players in their new numbers on Sunday when the Pittsburgh Steelers come to Denver. 6 days, 9 hours, 55 minutes, 39 seconds and 346 milliseconds!
