I believe you can only retire a certain amount of jersey numbers. Thought I remember hearing the Bears can't retire anymore numbers
I actually remember Tagliabu (former commish) saying that conceivably a cap would need to be put on only if a team literally retired so many #'s they didn't have 53 for the actual roster left. So think about it from 1-99 you would have to retire literally 46 #'s to run out.
