Greg Newsome II, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah change jersey numbers

Newsome II becomes the first Browns player to wear No. 0, and Owusu-Koramoah returns to the number he wore in college


Greg Newsome II and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah are changing their jersey numbers.

Both third-year players announced the changes Saturday as the Browns prepare for the start of training camp at The Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia. Newsome will switch from No. 20 to No. 0, becoming the first Browns player to wear the number.

Until this season, the NFL did not permit players to wear the number zero.

Owusu-Koramoah, meanwhile, decided to switch from No. 28 to No. 6, the number he wore at Notre Dame.
