There is occasionally during the pre season simply because teams run out of numbers due to retired numbers and pre season rosters are about 80 players. There will never be two players with the same number on the same team during the regular season however as this is against the ules. If you seen this it must be a mis print. In_My_Tree888

you need to be more specific...because the number 81, for instance, is worn by both Terrell Owens of the Cowboys and Randy Moss of the Patriots. If you mean two football players on the same team with the same jersey number, that answer would be no, unless Owens and moss ever play on a pro bowl team together. Pro Bowl teams are the only teams that have two or players with the same number.
