The Denver Broncos‘ new players have been working with the equipment staff to select new numbers for the 2012 season.  As of Wednesday, fourteen players have finalized their jersey numbers.

Notable players/numbers:

WR Brandon Stokley — No. 14.

CB Tracy Porter — No. 29.

DT Justin Bannan — No. 97.

You can see the complete list on DenverBroncos.com.  Interestingly, two players — tight end Jacob Tamme and safety Mike Adams — have yet to be assigned numbers.

In Cleveland, Adams wore No. 20 with the Browns and if free agent safety Brian Dawkins retires, he will presumably wear the same number in Denver.  The team is waiting for Dawkins’ decision before giving away his number.

Dawkins (38, 6-0, 210), is healthy again and open to returning this season.  Dawkins said last month that he will make whatever decision is best for him and his family and did not give a timetable for his decision.

We would love to see Dawkins back on the field this season.  Quarterback Peyton Manning puts Denver in Super Bowl contention, and Dawkins does not have a ring to go along with his Hall of Fame resume.
