We have 2 45's Stupar LB and Schelper FB as well. Don't think they care in the offseason/pre-season. Once they cut to 53 Asomugha or Dixon will have to change their number. Eric Reid might change from 35 as well. Edit: and 2 33's Hampton and Cooper.
Like you said with 12 retired #'s that leaves 87 left with 90 players and even then have to remember certain positions have to certain numbers.
So we have multiples of 45, 33, 24 and 4. Forgot about Hawkins. Eric Reid is one of the few without a # on the official roster. I think all a long he wanted to change it. Don't really like 35 much but either way don't get too upset over numbers. I'm not a jersey guy anymore either.
