Notably, tight end Brandon Pettigrew will trade his No. 84 for No. 87, the number he wore while he was at Oklahoma State.
Newcomers Keiland Williams and Jacques McClendon also got their new jerseys, and will wear Nos. 34 and 63, respectively. Williams, a running back, and McClendon, an offensive lineman, were both claimed off waivers by the Lions.â†µ
If No. 34 seems familiar, that would likely be because it was recently worn by running back Kevin Smith, who is currently a free agent after the Lions decided not to extend him an offer after last season.â†µ
Williams wore No. 35 last season in Washington and McClendon wore No. 80 for Indianapolis, where he was originally a tight end.â†µ
