NFL players can now wear No. 0 (well, not all of them)

The NFL is having its league owners meeting down in Arizona, and as is standard during this portion of the offseason a host of changes get made to the rulebook, including something as seemingly trivial as uniform numbering.

A couple of seasons ago, the NFL loosened its jersey number restrictions by position to allow safeties such as the Seattle Seahawks’ Quandre Diggs to wear No. 6, as opposed to a number between 20-49. Well now they’re loosening them even more to let most players have the option to be No. 0. This is very important stuff we’re talking about here!
