2014 NFL countdown: 44 days left and a look at the Cardinals history of No. 44

New, comments

Counting down again!

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

44 days left until the season starts for the Arizona Cardinals. 44 days that remain...

Who has worn No. 44?

Right now it belongs to linebacker Keenan Clayton, signed as a free agent this offseason.

In 2011, at least briefly, it was worn by tight end Steve Skelton, the younger brother of quarterback John Skelton. Before switching to 34, running back Ryan Williams also wore 44.

FB Jarrod Baxter wore it in 2005, playing in eight games that year.

Safety Michael Stone, drafted in the second round of 2001, wore it from 2001-2004. He was a disappointment, never managing to become a starter in three seasons.

Before Stone, it was cornerback J.J. McCleskey, who wore it from 1997-99.

D.J. Johnson, a cornerback, wore it for seven games in 1996.

Tight end Terry Samuels wore 44 in 1995.
