San Francisco 49ers kicker Phil Dawson announced today that he will be wearing a new number for the 2016 season. He wore number 9 since signing with the 49ers in 2013. Dawson will wear the number 4 during the upcoming season.


Dawson wore the number during college and during his 14 seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He was forced to wear a different number when he joined the 49ers because punter Andy Lee was wearing the number 4.

After becoming an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year earlier this month, Dawson signed a one-year deal to return to the 49ers.


Dawson, who turned 41 in January, is getting ready to enter his 18th season in the NFL. He converted 24 of 27 field goals in 2015 and has an 85.4 percent career completion percentage. Prior to coming to San Francisco, Dawson made the Pro Bowl in 2012.

It's an unfortunate change for any fan who previously invested in a Deebo jersey—unless they consider it a throwback. Newly signed wide receiver Trent Taylor quickly claimed No. 19 after rejoining the team on a one-year deal following three seasons elsewhere. Taylor last wore No. 15 with the 49ers, a number currently worn by wide receiver Jauan Jennings. Taylor also wore No. 81 with the team. The 49ers' official team site has listed the jersey numbers for several of the team's free-agent newcomers (and Maliek Collins, acquired via a

Rapoport: 49ers send clear message to teams inquiring about Brandon Aiyuk

By David Bonilla
Apr 16

Ian Rapoport didn't offer much of an update on the ongoing contract negotiations between the San Francisco 49ers and their standout wide receiver, Brandon Aiyuk. However, the NFL insider emphasized one thing: The team is not entertaining trade discussions at this juncture. Reacting to Aiyuk's decision to unfollow the 49ers on Instagram, Rapoport couldn't help but chuckle at the latest development. This practice has become commonplace among players who are unhappy with their contract situations. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel similarly took this action in 2022 before requesting to be traded just before the draft. Things have yet to escalate that far with Aiyuk, but Rapoport sees his
