Default Retired #'s

Do the Steelers retire numbers? I know of only 1 number that is retired #70.

Are the rest just off limits Like some of the following 75, 59, 12, 32, 58, 52, 88,82, 47

I know in the past 82 was worn by Thigpen & 88 by Hastings.

im also thinking maybe after Townsend retires #26 will be off limits once Woodson goes in the hall

There is just one retired number, other numbers just are unoficially off-limits by the equipment coordinator.

Yes, only one retired. The other's aren't completely off limits though (Maybe #'s 12, 32, 58 and 75), but most of the others have been worn recently.

82 was also worn by Antwaan Randel El
88 by Courtney Hawkins
52 by Mike Jones ("The Tackler")
...etc...

I wonder if we'll see #36 being worn anytime soon though?

It looks like they would retire some of those numbers I didn't know that only one jersey was retired.
That is some interesting information.

Ernie Stautner wore #70.

No one has worn 52 since 1989.

Hmm. You're right.

I forgot about Bobby Shaw. Don't he and Kordell hold the Steelers record for the longest pass play from scrimmage ( courtesy of the Baltimore Ravens)?
