Every Retired Uniform Jersey Number in the NFL


Having your number retired in the NFL is a pretty big deal. In fact, only a small percentage of players to ever step on the field will see their team jersey number earn such an honor. (Well, unless you're Reggie White and have your number retired by two different teams.)

In fact, some teams seem to go crazy retiring numbers, while other teams are surprisingly lacking in retired numbers (we're looking at you, Dallas).
