The Kansas City Chiefs 1st round pick has a jersey number. Dontari Poe tweeted on Tuesday that he would be wearing No. 92. That number is listed on the roster at KCChiefs.com and I also confirmed it with the Chiefs considering we do have a history of a Chiefs 1st round pick tweeting out a jersey number that wasn't actually his jersey number.

No other rookies numbers are listed on the website.

We probably shouldn't read anything into this, but whatever: No. 92 is Wallace Gilberry's former number. A jersey doesn't determine whether someone will be signed or not, obviously. But Gilberry is a free agent. You'd think the two sides would've done a deal by now if there was mutual interest. We'll see but I haven't heard anything or see any signs that would indicate Gilberry is coming back.

While looking at the Chiefs roster, I also noticed a few of the free agents have numbers. This happened a while ago but I haven't posted any of the notable jersey numbers on the site so here ya go: 26 Stanford Routt | 74 Eric Winston | 9 Brady Quinn | 35 Jacques Reeves | 40 Peyton Hillis | 80 Kevin Boss
