In 2008, I completed a series for the Greatest Cowboys by Their Jersey Numbers. Unfortunately, I have not done a good job of keeping those lists updated.

Until now. For the next few weeks, I will post updates to the various numbers, going five at a time. Today’s list features jersey numbers 1 through 5.

Here is a complete list of players who wore those numbers:

As for the numbers, here are the updates since 2008:

#1: The Cowboys released Mat McBriar after the 2011 season.

#2: Sam Paulescu replaced an injured McBriar in 2008.

#3: Jon Kitna served as Tony Romo’s backup from 2009 to 2011.

#4: No changes since 2008.

#5:  Brooks Bollinger played in two games at quarterback in 2008.

Kicker Dan Bailey joined the Cowboys in 2011 and had a solid rookie season.
