Stefon Diggs assures fans who bought his jersey that he won’t change his number

Wild Card Round - Indianapolis Colts v Buffalo Bills

With the NFL considering a rule change that would allow wide receivers to wear single-digit numbers, Bills receiver Stefon Diggs mused about the possibility on Twitter.

Diggs has worn No. 14 throughout his NFL career, but he wore No. 1 both in high school and in college. Diggs had a tweet this week that seemed to be hinting at a number change, but then he followed it up by assuring any fan who owns his jersey that the jersey won’t become obsolete.

“After some thought,” Diggs wrote, “I can’t change my number all the people that spent their hard earned money supporting the 14 I gotta keep it.”

Several NFL players have indicated that they’re interested in changing their numbers if the NFL allows it, but fans who own their jerseys may not be too happy about it. Diggs was wise to keep those fans in mind.

  1. Your a Good Man Mr Diggs!!!Bills Mafia Can’t wait to see you light it up Again!!!

  2. Meanwhile in Foxboro, let’s see here … YUP it’s still the same. Every defense in the league has New England’s number.

  3. He won fantasy leagues for a lot of people with his Monday night week 16 performance, and hence new fans. Smart move to keep his fans in mind.

    Here we have a nice story about a player being humble and thinking of the fans first and THAT was the first thing that popped into your head? Youch.

    Do you have these outbursts often?

  5. Diggs-it is awesome. We, or at least I, miss him on the V. Glad he isn’t playing on another NFC team.

  7. I think that’s awesome for him. But I gotta say I think it’s kinda cool having a number 36 Sean Taylor sweater or a 45 Jordan. To each their own.

    For the record, I visit PFT multiple times a day and generally browse the comments on any article I read and I have no idea who The Almighty Cabbage is.

    Go Diggs
    Go Bills

  11. Not a Buffalo fan. I used to dislike this guy, but I’ve gone a 180 degrees on him.

  12. To be fair, many of those fans’ #14 jerseys have DIGGS taped over Fitzpatrick and Sammy Watkins jerseys.
