Several New England Patriots players have announced a jersey change for the upcoming 2024 NFL season. Some new signings declared what they will wear as well. For those keeping up with offseason rosters, these are the known changes to date.

Linebacker Sione Takitaki will wear No. 16. He wore that number for BYU in college, though had been No. 44 in the NFL for the Cleveland Browns.

Wide receiver Jalen Reagor switched his number from No. 83 to No. 1, which was opened up by DeVante Parker‘s departure.

New addition K.J. Osborn chose No. 2, freed up by Jalen Mills exiting in free agency. He previously wore No. 17 with the Minnesota Vikings.

DeMario Douglas moves from No. 81 to No. 3, worn by Mack Wilson Sr. last year. Douglas wore No. 3 in college at Liberty.

Defensive lineman Jeremiah Pharms wore No. 70 last season in New England. He will wear No. 98 in 2024.

Thank you to NFL Jersey Numbers for the updates.
