San Diego Chargers Retired Numbers


Following are the players whose jersey numbers have been retired for each of the current NFL teams. If a card is shown for a player, you can click on the image the see all of the player's cards in the Gallery. Zeus slot game. When I could find them, I chose cards for this page that show the players wearing their numbers.

For the list of retired numbers, I referred to a page on the NFL web site. Apparently that page is not completely correct, however. For example, it shows a few retired numbers for the Atlanta Falcons, but the Falcons web site says that the team does not officially retire jersey numbers.

Arizona Cardinals

San Diego Chargers president Dean Spanos announces that Junior Seau's #55 is officially retired and will never again be worn by another Chargers player. Only 2 other players in Chargers team history have had their numbers retired.#12 (Dan Fouts) and #19 (Lance Alworth). At that time it would have been a Wes Chandler jersey of the San Diego Chargers. (from Wikipedia) Wesley Sandy 'Wes' Chandler (born August 22, 1956) is a former American college and professional football player who was a wide receiver in the National Football League (NFL) for eleven seasons in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Cardinals franchise has retired five numbers, three of them posthumously. Stan Mauldin, who played for the Chicago Cardinals, died after a game against the Philadelphia Eagles in 1948. J.V. Cain died in training camp in 1979, while the team was in St. Louis. Pat Tillman left the Cardinals in 2002 to serve in the U.S. Army; he was killed in Afghanistan in 2004.
