During his introductory press conference on Friday, new Eagles receiver Alshon Jeffery said he was going to pick a new number and let Nelson Agholor keep 17.
"I'm gonna leave that," he said. "I wore that in Chicago. I think I'm gonna leave that in Chicago."
Turns out, he had a change of heart.
The Eagles announced numbers for their new players on Monday morning and Jeffery will sport his No. 17 in 2017.
Alshon Jeffery: 17
Torrey Smith: 82
Chance Warmack: 67
Agholor has worn 17 since his arrival as a first-round pick in 2017. The previous No. 17 before Agholor was Arrelious Benn. Many think the number should be retired because it was once owned by legendary receiver Harold Carmichael.
With Smith taking his No. 82, fans can break out those L.J. Smith jerseys that have been collecting dust in the back of their closest. The last player to wear 82 for the Eagles was Emil Igwenagu. Of course, Mike Quick also once wore 82.
Warmack will wear No. 67, most recently owned by offensive tackle Dennis Kelly, who was traded to Tennessee for Dorial Green-Beckham before the 2016 season. Center Jamaal Jackson wore 67 for years.
Three players who were already on the roster have new numbers too, including Agholor, who gave up 17.
Nelson Agholor: 13
Trey Burton: 88
Anthony Denham: 83
Agholor will take his former teammate Josh Huff's number. Write your own joke about Agholor taking the unlucky 13.
Burton is switching from his unique utility number 47 and now has a real tight end number. Cayleb Jones wore 88 last training camp, but the last player on the roster to wear 88 was the Maehl Man (Jeff Maehl).
