We are doing a countdown to the Cleveland Browns' first regular season game against the New York Jets, which is on September 13, 2015. For each day we are counting down, we will try to find a photo of a current or past member of the Browns in that uniform, and we'll also list the players who have donned that jersey in the past.
As of Friday, we are just 58 days away from the Browns' regular season opener. No. 58 is currently being worn by inside linebacker Chris Kirksey. WR Mac Speedie would probably be the most popular to have worn the number, as he was with the Browns from 1946 to 1952. Nobody has anchored the number down after that -- a recognizable name like D'Qwell Jackson switched numbers. Kirksey has a chance to make the number his own if he sticks around all four years of his rookie deal. Here is the list of players who have worn No. 58 in the history of the franchise, per Pro Football Reference:
