Last week, Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman, the team's 2016 first-round draft pick, announced that he would be wearing jersey number 19 as a rookie. When we asked whether fans cared that he was taking the number once worn by QB Bernie Kosar, 78% of voters answered, "Doesn't matter to me; wear whatever you want," while 20% of fans thought the number should have been exclusive to Kosar.

Today, the team announced what jersey numbers their entire rookie class, as well as the player they acquired via a trade, will wear during the offseason. When roster cuts are announced and more numbers become available in September, you might see some of these players change their jerseys -- so you might want to hold off on purchasing your favorite rookie's number.
