Rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez has switched to jersey number 85. The number became available following the release of tight end Robbie Agnone on Friday.
Hernandez wore No. 81 at Florida, but that is taken by Randy Moss here in New England. When Hernandez first arrived in town, he was issued No. 46.
A few other changes:
Safety Bret Lockett has switched to No. 26 from 38.
Running back Chris Taylor has switched to No. 29 from No. 35.
