Question of the Day:
Can anyone give the reason that Hall of Fame Tight End John Mackey’s uniform number was not retired?

John Mackey played for the Baltimore Colts from 1963-1971. He is a 5 time Pro Bowl. Also a Super Bowl V Champion.
He played with other Hall of Famers from the Baltimore Colts, for example:
Johnny Unitas #19 (#19 Retired)
Raymond Berry #82 (#82 Retired)
Lenny Moore #24 (#24 Retired)
and others…
So what is different about his #88?

If any one knows, please leave me a comment.

    Are those numbers retired by the Indianapolis Colts or the Baltimore Ravens?

      After a little research, it seems that the Baltimore Colts retired most of the jersey numbers while here in Baltimore. But when they moved to Indianapolis, they have not retired any additional numbers from the Baltimore Colts or the Indianapolis Colts.
