Parris Campbell to wear No. 0; Darren Waller takes No. 12


It didn't take long for Parris Campbell to jump on a new league rule.

The wide receiver and recent free-agent acquisition will wear No. 0 to start his Giants tenure. On Tuesday, the NFL passed a proposal that allows for more flexibility in assigning jersey numbers. Except for offensive and defensive linemen, players can now wear the number zero. It follows in the path of college football, where the number was first allowed in 2020.

The Giants also announced jersey numbers of other newcomers: Tight end Darren Waller, who came over in a trade with the Las Vegas Raiders, will wear No. 12, safety Bobby McCain will have No. 21, and linebacker Bobby Okereke will sport No. 58. The latter number was previously worn by long snapper and special teams co-captain Casey Kreiter, who will now take No. 59. Cornerback Amani Oruwariye and tight end Tommy Sweeney will wear Nos. 20 and 89, respectively.

New uniform numbers have been revealed for the Giants.

Below are the new rules for NFL jersey numbers:

  • Quarterbacks, punters, placekickers: 0-19;
  • Punters, placekickers: 0-49 and 90-99
  • Defensive backs: 0-49;
  • Running backs, fullbacks, tight ends, H-backs, wide receivers: 0-49 and 80-89;
  • Offensive linemen: 50-79;
  • Defensive linemen: 50-79 and 90-99;
  • Linebackers: 0-59 and 90-99
