A few veterans have switched their numbers around, as well.

The Atlanta Falcons welcomed a raft of new free agents this offseason, and those free agents finally decided on their numbers. A few guys have changed their numbers, too. I know some of you find this riveting.

Hat tip to the mothership for the full list, which I've copied here.

For my money, the most interesting change is Prince Shembo's, given that he's switching to a number traditionally associated with linemen. Probably doesn't mean anything in particular, but keep an eye on how Shembo is used going forward.
