I was looking through my Sports cards yesterday, which i havent looked at in a couple of years. I noticed Hines Ward rookie card with him wearing the number 15? Can anyone tell me why he switched or did he ever actually play a game with that jersey? Thanks.

Rookies sometimes wear a different number during the preseason

im guessing this is the card:

Did some more research (http://www.jockbio.com/Bios/Ward/Ward_bio.html) and Cowher wasn’t sure where to play Hines at first, and was tempted to make him a Slash-type player, he started on Special Teams. He probably wore 15 because that would have him eligible to play QB and WR ( he played QB in college)

And Mike Adams a reciver from Texas had number 86. I was at Hines first game in Canton at the HOF game against the Bucs. Dang thats been a long time ago.
