Manuel Johnson gets a new number
Gone is #1 he wore at Oklahoma. He’s been issued #87. I guess Dallas is holding up #81 (Terrell’s old number) for now. Or maybe Johnson didn’t want it.
Stephen McGee, who wore #7 at Texas A&M, gets that number with Dallas (it most recently had been worn by kicker Martin Grammatica and quarterback Drew Henson). University of Cincinnati cornerback Mike Mickens gets #33 (Tony Dorsett’s old jersey, which, unlike Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman, Bob Lilly and Emmitt Smith, apparently isn’t unofficially unretired [the Cowboys, like the Pittsburgh Steelers, don’t retire jerseys but, like the Steelers, they do have jerseys that they don’t issue out again])
