Carlos Dunlap hasn’t been a member of the Kansas City Chiefs for that long, but he already appears to have been assigned a jersey number.
Dunlap shared a picture on his Instagram story of a No. 8 Chiefs jersey with his name on it. KSHB-TV producer Nick Jacobs shared the post on Twitter. The caption reads: “Wow. . . they know, great selling point too, they really showing love! Where do I sign lol.”
It’s a familiar jersey number for Dunlap, who wore the No. 8 jersey with the Seahawks last season. He switched from the No. 43 jersey which he wore with Seattle in 2020 when the NFL adopted new rules expanding the usage of single-digit jersey numbers. Dunlap also wore No. 96 with the Cincinnati Bengals for his entire tenure with that team.

The No. 8 jersey was previously worn by WR Justyn Ross this offseason. He was recently placed on injured reserve and is out for the season. As a result, this jersey number was up for grabs.
