Darrelle Revis to take No. 24 on Friday, the number worn by Revis during his six-year career with the
New York Jets. Barron, the seventh overall pick in 2012, will wear No. 23.
Per NFL rules, teammates must negotiate between each other for the exchange of a number. The two had been in talks since Revis, a four-time Pro Bowl player, was signed to a six-year, $96 million deal April 21. Barron, an Alabama product, had 88 tackles with one interception as a rookie. Now, he’ll enter his second season with a new look.
