Rookies and Veterans Select Numbers for the 2022 Season

Jersey number article

The Chargers and general manager Tom Telesco have had a busy offseason as they've signed 14 new free agents to the roster and welcomed in eight draft picks.

Over the last few weeks, rookies and veterans alike have had the chance to pick their new numbers with some players taking to social media to share their excitement with the Bolts fan base.

For Safety Derwin James, his number change goes back to his college roots at Florida State, where he sported the No. 3 on Saturdays. The NFL jersey rule change last offseason allowed defensive backs to select single digit numbers giving James the opportunity to go back to his college number.

Chargers outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy, who previously wore number 53 in New England, put out a tweet last week explaining his decision behind choosing No. 8 with the Chargers.

Take a look at the full list of new numbers on the Bolts roster for the Chargers free agent additions, returning players, and rookies:
