Another member of the Chicago Bears‘ 53-man roster has changed his jersey number. Yesterday, two defensive backs and two wide receivers changed their digits. Today, a prolific Bears linebacker swapped out his old number for a new one.

Danny Trevathan is going with the single digits now by swapping 59 for 6. As a result, the Bears updated their graphic.

Last Player to Wear That Number (In A Game)

6: Jay Cutler (2009-2016)

Mark Sanchez wore #6 in 2017 but never took a snap in a Bears uniform.

Notable Players to Wear That Number

  • Kevin Butler (1985-1995)
  • Jay Cutler (2009-2016)
