Cowboys news: The great jersey number debate rages on

The great numbers debate rages on.

That led to many players suggesting a few changes, including Jaylon Smith, who has shown interest in wearing No. 9, his college number at Notre Dame.

That number hasn’t been given to any Cowboys player since Tony Romo retired at the end of the 2016 season.

Could Jaylon actually wear Romo’s number? Is it even Romo’s number still?

This week, longtime Cowboys equipment manager Mike McCord reiterated the team’s stance of “unofficially retiring” jersey numbers in some special cases.

There are a few jersey numbers that will never get worn again – at least in the regular season.
