49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt announces jersey number change

May 3, 2021 at 10:58 AM--

A new year, a new number for Jaquiski Tartt. The safety re-signed with the San Francisco 49ers in March and announced today that he is switching his jersey number from No. 29 to No. 26.

Running back Tevin Coleman wore No. 26 over the last two seasons. He has since signed with the New York Jets.

Tartt returned to the 49ers on a one-year deal after testing the free-agency waters.

"We are very excited to have Jaquiski back with our team," general manager John Lynch said via a statement after the signing became official. "Jaquiski is an extremely skilled and versatile player who provides excellent communication skills for our defense.

The 49ers made Tartt a second-round selection out of Samford in 2015. He recorded 30 tackles, one tackle for a loss, an interception, and four passes defended through seven games in 2020 before landing on injured reserve due to a toe injury.

"At this point, I'm doing well, and surgery went well," Tartt told reporters in March. "Rehab has been going well. But when it happened, I thought I was probably going to miss a game or two. To get the news that it was a Grade-3, it was tough for me."

Tartt, 29, has 301 tackles, 16 tackles for a loss, four interceptions, four sacks, and 17 passes defensed during his six NFL seasons.

Add San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jason Verrett to the list of players changing their jersey numbers this offseason. On April 21, the NFL approved a proposal that relaxes the jersey number rules of certain position groups, opening the door for wide receivers, defensive backs, and some others to wear single-digit numbers. On Monday, safety Jaquiski Tartt revealed that he is switching from No. 29 to No. 26. Of course, that doesn't really fall into the rule change. Verrett, however, is switching from No. 22 to No. 2, the number he wore at TCU. It will be his second number change since joining the 49ers in 2019. His initial number was 27.
