Chargers rookie jersey numbers for now, history of those numbers

New, comments

Some of these numbers may change, but these are the rookie numbers and the history of those numbers.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Well, we are in that dead time between the last minicamp and the beginning of training camp, so what better time to review the numbers assigned to the rookie class? Each rookie is listed below, and for historical context so are the players who previously wore their jersey number. The names and numbers have been pulled from Chargers.com and the past wearers of those jerseys were supplied by Pro Football Reference (as was the Approximate Value).
