Ja’Marr Chase can keep that jersey he received on the draft stage in Cleveland last week.

The Bengals announced numbers for their rookies, and the wide receiver has chosen No. 1 — the same number he had at LSU.

With the new number rule, wide receivers are among the positions who can wear numbers 1-49 and 80-89. With no previous jersey inventory to buy out as an incoming rookie, Chase can easily take No. 1 and wear it to his heart’s content.

Chase is one of a few rookies who have decided to take advantage of the new numbers rule. Falcons No. 4 overall pick Kyle Pitts will sport No. 8 as a tight end. Buccaneers No. 32 overall pick Joe Tryon will wear No. 9 as a defensive end.
