Bo Nix finally has a jersey number.

The Broncos’ starting quarterback will wear No. 10 during the 2024 season, the team announced Thursday. The number originally belonged to quarterback Zach Wilson, who will now wear number 4.

Jarrett Stidham will wear No. 8, a number he wore while playing at Auburn, after donning No. 4 in 2023.

The number 10 has been with Nix throughout his football career. He wore it while playing for Pinson Valley High School, where he racked up over 12,000 yards of offense and 161 touchdowns (127 passing and 34 rushing touchdowns).

Nix, the Broncos’ first-round overall pick, also wore the number during his three-year stint at Auburn and two seasons at Oregon. Nix broke Oregon’s single-season records for completions (364), passing yards (4,508) and touchdown passes (45) in 2023.

His father, Patrick, also wore No. 10 during his college football career at Auburn. Patrick racked up 4,957 career passing yards and 31 touchdowns in four seasons with the Tigers.

For the remainder of Denver’s 2024 rookie class, wide receiver Troy Franklin will wear No. 16, running back Audric Estime will wear No. 37, wide receiver Devaughn Vele will wear No. 81, edge rusher Jonah Elliss will wear No. 52 and guard Nick Gargiulo will have no. 66.

Meanwhile, cornerback Kris Abrams-Draine will wear number 31, which was worn by former safety Justin Simmons.

Jersey numbers are subject to change prior to the start of the regular season. Last year, wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. moved from No. 83 to No. 19 before week 1.

Fans can purchase the jerseys at the Broncos team store or online.
