Now that the NFL Draft is officially over, it's time for teams to focus on organized team activities, minicamps, and the 2023 NFL regular season. But before this year's Miami Dolphins officially take the field, some of the team's pre-existing veterans and free agents had to answer the all-important question:
"What jersey number should I wear this upcoming season?"
Last week, a few numbers leaked on social media. For example, newly added wide receiver and return specialist Braxton Berrios posted an image on Instagram with him wearing his newly appointed #0. But for the most part, many of these numbers were still unknown — until now, that is.
A short time ago, Miami Dolphins official account announced the veterans' new numbers, and for the most part, everything looks good. Except maybe Berrios, who is wearing the newest eligible number and one that may take years to get used to.

Next up is Miami's 2023 draft class — but we may have to wait a little while before Cam Smith, Devon Achane, Elijah Higgins, and Ryan Hayes sign their rookie contracts. Though, I think we can all admit we're very intrigued to see what jersey numbers Cam Smith and, especially, Devon Achane select.
