NFL owners approve proposal to allow No. 0 jerseys 

A new jersey number will be available for players this season.

NFL owners voted Tuesday during the Annual League Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, to allow players – except for offensive and defensive linemen – to wear the number zero, the NFL announced.

Also under the approved rule, punters and kickers may now choose jersey numbers from 0-49 and 90-99. Previously, punters and kickers could wear numbers 1-19 – the same as quarterbacks.

The change was proposed by the Philadelphia Eagles. Below is the full list of positions and allowed jersey number ranges to choose from:
