Updated jersey numbers for Steelers players in 2012

A few days ago we had a post in the forums about the jersey numbers that the Steelers 2012 rookies and free agents will wear during the offseason and possibly into the 2012 season too. These are always subject to change as players get cut, and someone else tries to get their preferred number, the young guys try to get their favorite number away from a veteran before the season starts, etc.  Plus with rosters up to 90 players now there’s only so many numbers to go around per position in the offseason.

A few changes that I took notice of rather quickly:

-4th round draft pick Alameda Ta’amu will wear #95. Personally I’ve always been partial to 95 as a linebackers number. Some numbers just fit for a certain position. That’s the Greg Lloyd homer in me though I guess.

-Baron Batch will wear #20 this year, formally Bryant McFadden’s number who was released earlier this offseason.
-3rd round draft pick Sean Spence will wear the James Farrior #51 jersey.
-Corbin Bryant is wearing #91, Aaron Smith’s old number.
-Chris Rainey, 5th round draft pick will wear 22, Will Gay’s old number.

This list comes from Ed Bouchette via his blog, which is a great resource and only costs very little per month compared to the insight he gives. Check out the full post with the full listing of number changes.
