Steelers rookie jersey numbers revealed

New, comments

Rookies begin minicamp today in Pittsburgh, and in wake of that, the team updated its roster to include the numbers of the rookies who will be in attendance.


The Steelers have given jersey numbers out to its rookie class, according to Tribune-Review reporter Mark Kaboly.

Along with that, a few veterans have changed their numbers.

Wheaton is wearing No. 11, according to the team.

Nose tackle Hebron Fangupo took No. 92, the number worn most recently by James Harrison, who's now with the Bengals. Alameda Ta'amu switched from 95 to 74 - the number vacated by offensive guard Willie Colon, who signed with the Jets after being released by the Steelers this offseason.

Newly acquired running back LaRod Stephens-Howling will wear No. 34, vacated by Rashard Mendenhall who went to Arizona, where Stephens-Howling left. Tight end Matt Spaeth will wear No. 87 instead of his old No. 89 (now worn by wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery), and punter Brian Moorman will wear No. 8. William Gay retained his No. 22, one year after leaving Pittsburgh, only to return.

Rookie Jarvis Jones, who initially was given No. 91, changed to 95 - the number of Steelers legend Greg Lloyd. Seventh-round pick Nicholas Williams will wear 91.

Defensive back Demarcus Van Dyke switched from 30 to 23. Fifth round pick Terry Hawthorne took No. 30.

Second round pick Le'Veon Bell will wear No. 26, third round pick Markus Wheaton will wear No. 11 and fourth round picks, Shamarko Thomas and Landry Jones, will wear No. 29 and No. 3, respectively. Sixth-round picks LB Vince Williams and WR Justin Brown will wear No. 44 and No. 15, respectively.
