Two Cardinals change numbers


TEMPE, Ariz. -- Two seasons, two numbers for safety Deone Bucannon.

The former first-round pick was one of two Cardinals to change their numbers for the upcoming season.

Bucannon traded in No. 36 for No. 20, the same number he wore at Washington State. His Twitter handle, @deonebucannon20, never changed to include 36 after he was drafted last year. Free-agent running back Jonathan Dwyer wore No. 20 for the two games he played in last season.

The other Cardinal to change numbers was defensive tackle Frostee Rucker, who will wear No. 92 in 2015. He wore No. 98 his first two seasons in Arizona. Rucker wore No. 92 his first six seasons in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns.

Former Cardinals nose tackle Dan Williams wore No. 92 the last two seasons. He signed with the Oakland Raiders last month as a free agent.
