Plenty of players will be looking to change their numbers. They could choose to go after the number they wore in college or a number that they think suits them better than their current one. A few Baltimore players have already chimed in on the new rule, indicating that they’re excited about the possibility of switching to something different.

DeShon Elliott, who wore No. 4 in college at the University of Texas, said that the current holder of No. 4, Sam Koch, needs a Twitter account so that he can reach out about a potential swap.

Other Ravens who could look to update their number include J.K. Dobbins, James Proche, Devin Duvernay and Marquise Brown. Over the coming weeks and months, there should be plenty of players across the league donning new jerseys. A few of them might be from Baltimore.
