The 40 Vikings Players Assigned [New] Jersey Numbers
Dalvin Cook

The Minnesota Vikings announced over three dozen jersey numbers on Tuesday, some new branding for rookies, while others were changes for existing players.

The NFL relaxed rules in 2021, allowing players to choose numbering more liberally, often aligning with a player’s collegiate number.

So, down the line, these are the Vikings new numbers. Dalvin Cook finally switched back to his Florida State style; so did Cameron Dantzler throwing it back to the Mississippi State days.

Here’s the full list.
