The Eagles have announced a slew of number changes, in the wake of the team’s final roster cuts.
Running back Ronnie Brown has ditched 36 for 21. Receiver Steve Smith has shifted from 19 to 11. Safety Jarrad Page has swapped 25 for 41. And rookie running back Dion Lewis has moved from 27 to 28.
When a player wants to change his number, Reebok routinely requires the player to reimburse the company for any unsold jersey inventory bearing the prior number. In many cases, the player chooses not to make the change once becoming aware of the cost.
In this case, it’s not known whether anyone will be reimbursing Reebok — or the folks who have forked over retail cost for the jerseys of some of the newest members of the Dream Team.
