The San Francisco 49ers added a handful of free agents this offseason, and they are slowly handing out new uniform numbers. When the 49ers introduced Torrey Smith, they had the jersey figured out (No. 82). However, they are finally getting numbers together for the rest of the free agents. The team announced uniform numbers for eight free agents, and some changes for returning players.

WR Jerome Simpson: 14
RB Reggie Bush: 23
CB Shareece Wright: 29
RB Jarryd Hayne: 38
LB Nick Bellore: 50
LB Desmond Bishop: 51
G/T Erik Pears: 71
DT Darnell Dockett: 90

The team also announced that Kaleb Ramsey will switch to No. 68, and Glenn Dorsey will select a uniform number at a later date. Dorsey previously was No. 90, so he is giving it up to Dockett. Usually when a player gives up his number to another player, there is some kind of transaction involved. Sometimes it can be cash, sometimes it a watch or some other kind of object.

The 49ers will add some number of rookies next week in the 2015 NFL Draft. Those players will get a mix of fixed numbers and place-holder numbers. Once players start getting released in August, some players will often switch to a vacated number. My guess is these veterans stick with their numbers, but some very well could change at some point in the next few months.

Fooch's update: CB Kenneth Acker will switch from 24 to 20, CB Shareece Wright will wear 24.
