The new rookie class for the New York Jets officially has their numbers.

Ahead of the start of rookie camp, the team released the jersey numbers for the rest of their new players. They previously released the numbers for free agent signees and trade acquisitions.

The group includes some great choices, starting with Olu Fashanu‘s pick of No. 74. The number has not been worn since legendary center Nick Mangold retired, and Fashanu will carry on its legacy. It’s the same number he wore at Penn State.

Malachi Corley is receiving Garrett Wilson’s old number, 17, which became available when the star wide receiver switched to his college No. 5. This is another opportunity for a player to carry on a number’s recent past, as Corley will look to build on what Wilson did in his first two seasons.

Jordan Travis‘s choice of No. 3 is another good one. It has always been a good quarterback number, with Russell Wilson being the best player at the position to wear it recently. Additionally, the number gives Travis the moniker “JT3,” which flows together nicely.

Braelon Allen, one of the running backs the Jets selected in the fourth round, officially received the number zero he alluded to in his post on X (formerly Twitter). He is the second player for the Jets to don the number following Adrian Amos’ 2023 cameo.

As for the remaining picks, Isaiah Davis went with No. 32, a solid running back number. Qwan’tez Stiggers and Jaylen Key went with No. 37 and No. 33, respectively, two typical secondary numbers.

Player numbers are not a measuring tool for a player’s success. That usually comes down to their health, performance, and work ethic.

But does having a great number help the aesthetic of a player’s performance? One would probably agree, and the Jets’ rookie class has numbers that should help them heavily in this regard.
