The NFL is about to reset the jersey market, as the league is expected to pass a rule that will relax jersey number restrictions for almost every player not on the offensive or defensive line.

— QB: 1-19
— WR: 1-49, 80-89
— RB: 1-49, 80-89
— TE: 1-49, 80-89
— DB: 1-49
— LB: 1-59, 90-99
— OL: 50-79
— DL: 50-79, 90-99

With the news that this is definitely happening, players around the league have been hinting at switching their numbers.

Eagles cornerback Darius Slay joined the fray, hinting at a switch to Jalen Hurts’ former No. 2 or Nick Foles’s No. 9.

Slay eventually backtracked on No. 9, referring to Foles being a Super Bowl hero.
