I couldn't care less.  Let the players wear whatever number they want.  What's the big deal?  Fewer regulations is almost always a good thing.

Personnel packages could be impacted to an extent. It'll be slightly harder for opposing teams to determine which package you're sending out there. Not impossible but just slightly harder. I can see Belichick taking advantage of this.

OL should be limited just because of eligibility/ineligibility issues. But that’s it.

Let them wear whatever number they want

What would be wrong with a QB #47 or a DT #14 if they wanted to?

If the number is free on the team, let them wear it

I’m all in favor of this, except for OL still having to wear a designated ineligible number between 50-79.

A RB/FB wearing numbers 80-89 and WR wearing 20-49 looks gross to me.

Cliff Branch, a Raider great that won three Superbowls, wore #21 and was a WR.

QB's: 0-19

RB's/FB's: 1-49

WR's: 1-19, 80-89

TE's: 1-49, 80-89

OL: 50-79

DL: 40-99

EDGE: 40-99

LB: 40-99

DB: 1-49

 

That's what I would do. A lot more freedom.
