Wideout Brandon Lloyd, who wore No. 85 in his first stint with the team, has dropped down a digit and will wear No. 84 this year. That jersey was worn last year by fellow receiver Jon Baldwin, who will wear No. 82, which he wore at Pitt. Other new numbers, in order, according to the 49ers:


  • QB Blaine Gabbert - No. 2 (He was No. 11 at Missouri and with the Jaguars)

  • WR Bruce Ellington - No. 3 (This is temporary; WR numbers must be in the teens or 80s)

  • WR David Reed - No. 10

  • WR Stevie Johnson - No. 13 (Johnson had this number in Buffalo)

  • QB Kory Faulkner - No. 18 (He wore No. 19 at Southern Illinois; WR Devon Wylie has 19 for SF)

  • CB Chris Cook - No. 22 (He was No. 20 with Vikings)

  • S Antoine Bethea -- No. 24. (He was No. 41 in Indy; Bubba Ventrone has 41)

  • DB Jimmie Ward - No. 25 (He was No. 15 at No. Illinois. DBs must be in 20s, 30s, 40s)

  • RB Carlos Hyde - No. 28 (He was No. 34 at Ohio State, which was worn by the great Joe Perry and is retired)

  • CB Keith Reaser - No. 31

  • CB Dontae Johnson - No. 36

  • CB Kenneth Acker - No. 38

  • FB Trey Millard - No. 44 (Millard likely will be placed on NFI list with an ACL injury. With 90 players and 12 retired numbers, there are not enough numbers to go around in the offseason. That's why some numbers are repeated)

  • LB Shayne Skov - No. 44 (He wore no. 11 at Stanford; new number is temporary)

  • TE Asante Cleveland - No. 45

  • S D.J. Campbell - No. 45

  • S L.J. McCray - No. 46

  • LB Morgan Breslin - No. 47

  • LB Chris Borland - No. 50 (He was No. 44 at Wisconsin: LBs must be in 50s, 90s)

  • LB Aaron Lynch - No. 59 (FA C Jonathan Goodwin will not be re-signed)

  • G/T Brandon Thomas - No. 60

  • DT Kaleb Ramsey - No. 60 (Yes, he has same number as Thomas, who will not practice this year (ACL)).

  • T Luke Marquardt - No. 61

  • G/C Dillon Farrell - No. 63

  • G Fouimalo Fonoti - No. 64 (Played tackle at Michigan State; apparently now a guard)

  • C Marcus Martin - No. 66

  • DT Christian Tupou - No. 69

  • T Jonathan Martin - No. 71 (He was No. 71 at Miami. Why change?)
