Bills’ Emmanuel Sanders takes advantage of new rule, becomes first NFL WR with single-digit number

The new NFL rule that allows for players at a number of positions to wear a wider range of uniform numbers is already being used by a prominent wide receiver. 

Emmanuel Sanders, who has previously worn No. 10, 17 and 88, will switch to No. 1 for his first season with the Buffalo Bills.

The team announced the move via Twitter; new backup quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will wear No. 10. 

Sanders started his career by wearing 88 with the Pittsburgh Steelers. In five-plus seasons with the Denver Broncos, he wore No. 10. He used 17 at his last two stops with the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints.
