This is a list of the top players that played in the NFL for each number between 90 and 99.
The julius peppers a hall of famer is a question that has been asked for years. Julius Peppers, who wore number 90 for the Chicago Bears, has been named to the NFL’s Hall of Fame.
The 101 Greatest NFL Players by Uniform Number is now in its tenth and final episode of Sportscasting’s 10-part series.
For those who haven’t been paying attention, we’ve been doing exactly what the headline implies. We’ve just named the greatest player to wear each jersey number, since there have been 101 NFL seasons and 101 different jersey numbers worn in that period (00, 0, 1-99). Isn’t that simple? If you’re new to us or need a refresher on our Nos. 00-89 choices, look no further.
Here’s a look at some of the greatest NFL players who have worn Nos. 90-99. Enjoy.

Our No. 90 pick, defensive end Julius Peppers, kicks off our last edition of the list. Peppers spent 17 NFL seasons with the Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, and Green Bay Packers after being selected second overall in the 2002 NFL Draft out of North Carolina. He was a nine-time Pro Bowler and six-time All-Pro selection over his 17 seasons, with 159.5 sacks, the fifth-most in NFL history.
Kevin Greene, No. 91
Kevin Greene, who played 15 seasons with the Los Angeles Rams, Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina Panthers, and San Francisco 49ers, sits just ahead of Peppers on the NFL’s all-time sack record at No. 91. Greene, a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro pick, has 160 career sacks, good for fourth all-time, and was a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro selection. He was also awarded Defensive Player of the Year in the NFL in 1996.
Reggie White, No. 92

Reggie White, widely regarded as the best defensive end in NFL history, is our No. 92 pick. In case you’re curious, Michael Strahan was our second pick for this position.
After beginning his professional football career with the USFL’s Memphis Showboats, White joined the Philadelphia Eagles in 1985 and spent eight seasons with them before spending six years with the Green Bay Packers, with whom he won a Super Bowl. In 1999, he retired, but in 2000, he returned for one more season with the Carolina Panthers.
White has 198 career sacks in 15 seasons, only two behind Bruce Smith for the most in NFL history. He was a two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, two-time sack leader, thirteen-time Pro Bowler, and thirteen-time All-Pro selection.
John Randle, No. 93
The lone Hall of Famer to ever wear the number, renowned defensive lineman John Randle, is our pick for No. 93. Randle went undrafted out of Texas A&M-Kingsville in 1990. He initially tried out for his elder brother Ervin’s club, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but at 6-feet-1-inch and 244 pounds, he was deemed too short to play defensive line in the NFL and was not given a contract.
Soon after, he joined with the Minnesota Vikings, where he spent 11 seasons and was named to the Pro Bowl six times and named to the All-Pro team six times. Following the 2001 season, he was named to his seventh Pro Bowl as a member of the Seattle Seahawks, with whom he spent the last three years of his career.
DeMarcus Ware (No. 94)
Career statistics for DeMarcus Ware…
• 657 tackles, 171 TFL • 229 QB hits, 138.5 sacks • 35 FF, 8 FR • 25 PD, 3 INTs, 3 TDs • 9x pro bowler, 7x all-pro • 2x sacks leader • SB 50 champion pic.twitter.com/gH9O7kE8v1

One of the most difficult decisions we had to make on this section of the list was No. 94. On the one side, there was Charles Haley, a two-time All-Pro who won five Super Bowls with the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys. On the other hand, we had DeMarcus Ware, who despite only winning one Super Bowl, was the superior player in our opinion.
Lawrence, who entered the 2005 NFL Draft as the 11th overall selection out of Troy, spent the first nine years of his career with the Dallas Cowboys and the past three with the Denver Broncos. He has 138.5 sacks in a twelve NFL seasons, good for 13th all-time, and was a nine-time Pro Bowler and seven-time All-Pro pick.
Richard Dent, No. 95
Our No. 95 pick on the all-time sack list is Richard Dent, who spent 12 of his 15 NFL seasons with the Chicago Bears, where he earned Super Bowl 20 MVP as part of Buddy Ryan’s famed “46” defense. Dent also won a Super Bowl with the San Francisco 49ers in his only season with the team. He also spent a year with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Indianapolis Colts.
Dent has 137.5 sacks in 15 seasons, tied for 14th most in NFL history with John Randle. He was a four-time All-Pro pick and a four-time Pro Bowler.
Cortez Kennedy, No. 96
Cortez Kennedy, one of just two players in the Hall of Fame to ever wear the number 96, is our pick. Kennedy, the third overall selection out of Miami in the 1990 NFL Draft, spent his entire 11-year career with the Seattle Seahawks, only making the playoffs once. Despite the fact that Seattle finished the season 2-14, Kennedy was voted NFL Defensive Player of the Year. He was an eight-time Pro Bowler and a five-time All-Pro pick throughout his career.
Bryant Young, No. 97
We considered La’Roi Glover for the No. 97 spot, but finally went with Bryant Young, a defensive tackle/end who spent his entire 14-year NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers, where he won a Super Bowl as a rookie after the 1994 season. Young was a four-time Pro Bowl pick and a four-time All-Pro selection, with 89.5 career sacks ranking second in club history.
Jessie Armstead, No. 98
We debated former Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Casey Hampton and long-time Indianapolis Colts defensive end/linebacker Robert Mathis for No. 98. We ultimately chose linebacker Jessie Armstead, who spent nine of his eleven NFL seasons with the New York Giants. He spent the last two years of his career in Washington. Armstead was a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro selection after being selected 207th overall in the 1993 NFL Draft out of Miami.
Warren Sapp (No. 99)
J.J. Watt may wind up in the No. 99 spot when everything is said and done, and we were very close to placing him there previously. But, for now, we’ll go with Warren Sapp, who spent 13 seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders, including a Super Bowl championship with the Buccaneers. He was awarded NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1999 and was a seven-time Pro Bowler and six-time All-Pro pick.
That’s all there is to it, people. Our trip has finally come to a conclusion, and we thank you for joining us on this adventure.
