Low jersey numbers for receivers, what up with that?

Anybody have any idea why there is a trend of giving receivers low numbers?  For years 99% of all receivers had numbers in the eighties.  Over the last five years or so it's been chic to use the numbers 10-19.  Look at the Steelers:  Holmes #10, Logan #11, Sweed #14, and Wallace #17.  I think Quincy Morgan back in '05 might have been the first with the Steelers.  Only problem is, sometimes when I see #10 I have a flashback and think that Kordell is the QB!  Actually I kind of like the low numbers.  Receivers could where single digit number if they wanted to right?
