Patrick Queen has his eyes on Lamar Jackson's jersey number originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

A new NFL season always features old faces in new places, but in 2021 it could also feature old faces in old places but with new numbers.

NBC Sports' Peter King recently reported that the NFL is likely to pass a rule proposal by the Kansas City Chiefs that does away with strict number restrictions for jerseys based on positions. Here's what it would look like going forward, per King:

  • QB, punter, kicker: 1-19.

  • RB, TE, WR: 1-49, 80-89.

  • DB: 1-49.

  • LB: 1-59, 90-99.

  • OL: 50-79.

  • DL: 50-79, 90-99.

With that, it could mean that numerous NFL players try and return to their college numbers that were ineligible when they went to pro ball. For example, Chase Young could switch from No. 99 to No. 2. Among those interested is Ravens second-year linebacker Patrick Queen.

There's just one problem, his college number belongs to a certain MVP-winning quarterback on the roster by the name of Lamar Jackson. Still, Queen is wondering if his QB is interested in a trade.

The Ravens' 2020 first-round pick wore No. 8 at LSU during his collegiate playing days, and while that number may hold a special place in his heart, it will probably be impossible to find a deal intriguing enough to get it away from Jackson. 

If Queen is interested in switching his jersey number for the upcoming season, he's going to need a backup plan.
