Eagles hand out new jersey numbers

Ready, set, go get your Isaac Sopoaga jersey. The Eagles have assigned new numbers.

Sopoaga gets the number vacated by the release of defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins. Arrelious Benn takes a number that hasn't been worn in years. Bradley Fletcher hopes to fare better than the cornerback who previously wore 24.

Here's a look at the uniform numbers of 12 recently-acquired Eagles and two notable changes for players already on the roster. In addition, see what kind of shoes they have to fill in regards to players that have worn these uniform numbers in the past.

I did a little rummaging and found that you are correct. He wore 98 briefly.
