Chiefs' Chambers Wants Jersey Number 84

WR Chris Chambers signed a three-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs in the first week of free agency. Since he's going to be sticking around for a while, he's thinking about getting the number he really wants.

Soren Petro on the Chiefs Red Zone Podcast asked Chambers if he was thinking about making a change from his No. 11 from last year.

"That's the debate here because I have a lot of people that like 11," Chambers said. "I only had two choices [when I came to Kansas City] -- 11 and 13. I chose 11. I really want to get back into number 84, which I had my first year."

If you're superstitious, then No. 11 is probably the way to go since he performed well after coming to the Chiefs.

"Everyone is saying, 'Oh you did well with 11. You need to keep it.' I keep telling everyone, '84 is my number'. I did well in 84 as well."

The Mothership lists WR Chandler Wililams, who spent part of 2009 on the Chiefs practice squad, as the owner of No. 84 right now.

Technically, the team assigns jersey numbers but players have been able to work things out in the past.

"It's just a number but I'd like to wear that number again in the red and hopefully the NFL approves it but we'll see down the line," he said.

Hope you didn't buy a No. 11 Chris Chambers jersey.
