New Number on the Minnesota Vikings

The free agency rumors have dialed down. Viking fans continue to wait patiently on the edge of their seats. Eagerly anticipating the announcement of the signing of an offensive lineman. Sorry, not just a lineman, an average or above-average one. Until then, we most likely will not see a new man on the Minnesota Vikings. 

However, we could be seeing some new jersey numbers on the Vikings. In the next month or so, NFL owners will meet and vote on numerous proposals and rule changes. The Chiefs continue to stay innovative and have proposed a rule change that would allow wide receivers, running backs, tight ends, linebackers, and cornerbacks to wear numbers that would include single digits.

If the rule were to be passed the changes would be as follows:

  • QB: 1-19
  • RB: 1-49, 80-89
  • WR: 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

The rule itself has yet to be approved, but that hasn’t stopped Viking fans from concocting photoshops.

Dalvin Cook is certainly on board with his potential new number.

Cam Dantzler gives us a tease.

Justin Jefferson with too much drip, like always.

Fans had fun with our MVP (joking), Dakota Dozier.

An appropriate Chad Beebe creation.

Captain Kirk finds a new number.

Around the League

Potential Vikings draft target is cool with the rule change.

A possible corner target in the draft mentions honoring the late Kobe Bryant.

Zeke reps his old college number.

Alvin Kamara repping how many touchdowns he scored against the Vikings, which just so happens to be his college number.

The 49ers engaged in some negotiating.

Whether this becomes a reality will remain a mystery until next month. Until then, one can only hope we get to see an offense featuring #2 and #4 (JJ and Cook).
