On Wednesday, the Chicago Bears handed out jersey numbers to their new players. Of the fresh faces, 11 are members of their 2022 NFL Draft class. But the reveal didn’t come without the Bears’ social media team having a little bit of fun with the fans.

Ultimately, the team did reveal jersey numbers for all 11 draft picks. Additionally, each offseason free-agent signing’s number selection is also available via the Bears website.
