Could Breece Hall rock new digits for the New York Jets in 2023?
However, according to Hall himself, those No. 20 jerseys may soon become vintage.
Hall took to Twitter and revealed he has been thinking about switching to the No. 0 jersey, which was recently greenlit by the NFL. It will be the first-ever NFL season in which the No. 0 has been permitted. Any player can wear the number outside of offensive and defensive linemen.
Wearing #0 been on my mind lately😅

“Wearing #0 been on my mind lately,” Hall tweeted.
Several teams around the NFL have already had one of their players claim the No. 0, but the Jets are not among them. The Gotham Green zero remains up for grabs.
The Jets have a handful of new players who are yet to commit to a jersey number and could potentially swipe the No. 0. Mecole Hardman, Allen Lazard, Chuck Clark, Thomas Morstead, and Tim Boyle are the new non-linemen on the roster.
Of those players, Hardman seems like the best fit to wear No. 0. In my opinion, single-digit numbers look best on speedy skill-position players. Hardman, who is responsible for the third-fastest ball-carrying speed of any wide receiver in the NFL since 2019, fits the bill perfectly. I could picture Hardman looking fresh as he darts past defenders on jet sweeps with the zero on his back.
Personally, I contend the No. 20 jersey is a better fit for Hall than the No. 0. In comparison to the No. 0 jersey, Hall’s No. 20 jersey has a more traditional feel to it, which I think is a great match for Hall’s game.
Yes, Hall unquestionably boasts lightning-fast speed, but he’s also a big-bodied back who can plow through defenses in a classic fashion. In a league where so many running backs are switching to single-digit numbers, watching Hall put his head down and lay the boom with the No. 20 on his back gave off a nostalgic aesthetic that I thoroughly enjoyed watching.
Anyway, that’s more than enough gab about jersey number aesthetics from me. What do you think? Should Hall stick with No. 20 or switch to No. 0? Or do you subscribe to the old adage of “I don’t care what he wears as long as the Jets win”?
