Patriots Rookie N’Keal Harry Picks Interesting Jersey Number

It’s time for real football. The New England Patriots will strap on their pads and play their first game. Patriots rookies will be assigned traditional jersey numbers, and N’Keal Harry already has his own.

The Patriots will play their first preseason game Thursday night when they confront the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. This match is the first NFL action for a group of rookies. They will all wear jersey numbers that fir the league mandate instead of the unorthodox digits they were given at the beginning of the preseason.

Harry will sport No. 10, and wideout Cameron Meredith is having No. 1

Quarterback Jarrett Stidham has No. 4, P Jake Bailey has No. 7, wideout Gunner Olszewski has No. 9, wideout Jakobi Meyers has No. 16, and wideout Ryan Davis has No. 19.

Cornerback Joejuan Williams will wear No. 33, running back Damien Harris has No. 37, cornerback D’Angelo Ross has No. 41, running back Nick Brossette has No. 42, and Ken Webster has No. 47.

It’s interesting to note that Harry is wearing Josh Gordon’s number. Gordon is still suspended, but has already filed for reinstatement.

“It’s unclear when receiver Josh Gordon will be cleared to return to the NFL,” Mike Florio reported. “It is clear that Gordon is trying to get back in.

“Charean Williams of PFT reports that Gordon has applied for reinstatement.

“Gordon has been suspended on multiple occasions by the league for violations of the substance-abuse policy. Most recently, the league suspended him during the 2018 season, at a time when he had emerged as a legitimate receiving threat for the Patriots.

“And the Patriots definitely could use him, if they can get him back. And the NFL could use him, too, because the more highly-skilled players the NFL can get on the field, the more compelling the games can be, the more people will be inclined to watch the games, the higher the ratings for the games will be, and the more money everyone will make.

“In 11 games last season, Gordon caught 40 passes for 720 yards and three touchdown.”

Will he come back?
