Nick Foles is getting his old number with his new team.

The Bears quarterback will wear No. 9, the team said Wednesday. Foles wore No. 9 in two stints with the Eagles— including his Super Bowl MVP season. He’s taking the number from third-string passer Tyler Bray, who will wear No. 8.

New tight end Jimmy Graham will wear No. 80 — the jersey worn by the man he’s replacing, Trey Burton. So will outside linebacker Robert Quinn, who’s taking Leonard Floyd’s No. 94. Both new Bears have worn those numbers for the best seasons of their careers.

Other numbers assigned include: kicker Ramiz Ahmed (6), safety Jordan Lucas (21), cornerback Artie Burns (25), safety Kentrell Brice (38), tight end Darion Clark (44), outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo (50), guard Germain Ifedi (74), tackle Jason Spriggs (78) and tight end Demetrius Harris (86).
