As Gordon stated, no retired numbers. The equipment manager, use to be Mike McCormick I believe, maybe still is, or his son is now.
Anyway, he was responsible to handing out numbers. Usually veterens coming in if available got their previous teams numbers. If they were taken, then they negotiated with the player to get that number. There are only 2 numbers at one time that were not and may never issued, and now will be several more.
74 Lilly, but I think it was worn in camp, but not the season
I am actually surprixed 33 was given out a few times.
