The Denver Broncos announced on Monday a host of jersey number assignments for the 2021 season.
2020 second-round pick receiver K.J. Hamler will notably switch from the No. 13 to No. 1, which he donned during his days at Penn State.
Rookie cornerback Patrick Surtain II, whom Denver selected ninth overall in April, will wear the same No. 2 jersey he sported for three seasons at Alabama.
Hamler and Surtain are the first Broncos players to benefit from the NFL's decision to relax regulations on jersey numbers, allowing for an expansion in the number of players who can wear single-digit numbers.
Tune in to the 2021 NFL Schedule release at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, May 12, on NFL Network, NFL.com and the NFL app.
