The Redskins have assigned jersey numbers to the players who were acquired this offseason, according to the team’s website.
Nose tackle Terrance Knighton will wear No. 98, which, of course, was most recently worn by linebacker Brian Orakpo. Orakpo signed a free agent deal in Tennessee in March.
Defensive end Ricky Jean-Francois will wear No. 99, which belonged to Jarvis Jenkins, who signed with the Bears.
Defensive end Stephen Paea will wear No. 90. He had worn No. 92 in Chicago, but that number currently belongs to lineman Chris Baker.
Cornerback Chris Culliver chose No. 29, which is the same number he wore in San Francisco the past four seasons. Roy Helu had worn No. 29, but he signed in Oakland.
Safety Jeron Johnson will wear No. 20, which had belonged to Chase Minnifield, who is no longer on the roster. Johnson donned No. 23 in Seattle last season and 32 during the three seasons prior to that.
Safety Dashon Goldson will wear No. 38, the same number he’s worn throughout his nine-year NFL career. To accommodate him, reserve cornerback Justin Rogers switched to No. 25 (red). Running back Chris Thompson wears No. 25 (white).
Meantime, the 2015 draft picks' jersey numbers are as follows: Brandon Scherff (75), Preston Smith (94), Matt Jones (31), Jamison Crowder (80), Arie Kouandjio (74), Martrell Spaight (50), Kyshoen Jarrett (30), Tevin Mitchel (37), Evan Spencer (6) and Austin Reiter (62).
