The numbers for all of the new players are listed on steelers.com, under the roster section.
I did notice that they gave Woodley #55, which I find highly disrespectful to Joey for all the memories and effort he has given this team. I just don't agree with the move to let a rookie wear that number when Porter is not even a season removed.


9 Sepulveda, Daniel
55 Woodley, LaMarr
94 Timmons, Lawrence
89 Spaeth, Matt
69 McBean, Ryan
65 Stephenson, Cameron
22 Gay, William
67 Capizzi, Jason
48 Boyd, Cody
13 Deslauriers, Eric
81 Baker, Dallas
33 Russell, Gary
82 Fowler, Eric
14 Jackson, Chris
67 Jones, Derrick
40 Mosley, Paul
64 Retkofsky, Jared
46 Robbins, Aaron
61 Stapleton, Darnell

How is it disrespectful to give away his number? There have been greater players whose numbers have been worn by others less worthy of wearing such numbers but they do. Peezy is just another in a long list.

Must not be finalized yet because there are duplicate numbers. Sort by number and you will see doubles.

Agreed - an UDFA getting Stallworth's number, for instance.

I hear ya. It's not Porters number here anymore. He went his way FA, he didn't even retire here.

They always give out duplicate numbers, after camp, and if they make the team, they then get there number.

aren't a lot of those numbers the ones that the players wore in college? After camp, I'm sure the numbers will work out right.
