However, now that the 2013 NFL regular season will kick off on September 5, only one player gets to wear No. 24. In the 49ers' case, it will be Dixon, who said he "worked hard" to get the number that he first wore in high school.
"I worked hard to get that number when I first got here. I worked hard to get it off somebody else. I've been No. 24 since high school and college."
This is not the first time about an NFL player offered money to acquire a teammate's jersey number. Almost three months ago, newly-acquired Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis reportedly paid safety Mark Barron $50,000 for No. 24.
