NFL owners vote to allow players to wear No. 0 jerseys

The NFL made a much-wanted rule change this year at its annual meeting to allow teams to assign players the “0” jersey number.

In 2021, the Kansas City Chiefs successfully lobbied for a rule allowing single-digit jerseys for positions other than quarterbacks, punters and kickers. But now the league has voted to go one step further by agreeing to the Philadelphia Eagles’ proposal to allow number zero for jersey numbers.

According to Yahoo Sports, in addition to allowing players to wear number 0, the league has also expanded the number of people who can wear other numbers as well.

Previously placekickers and punters could only wear numbers from 1 to 19. Now they can wear numbers from 0 to 49 and 90 to 99.

The new rule has sparked a roster of players looking to tackle the numbers they worsened in college that until now they were barred from. Players such as Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Jaylen Watson, who wore No. 0 in college, are already eyeing up for a jersey change.

A long list of other rule changes and resolutions were also passed, including language changes in the use of a helmet against an opponent, a rule establishing illegal clearances identical to an illegal forward pass, one to redefine a launch penalty and many other technical issues.
