Why do NFL players have C on their jerseys?

The "C" patch on NFL players' jerseys signifies their role as team captains. The patch is worn on the front right or left breast, depending on other patches and accessories. It is usually in the team's colors and can be placed alongside other badges or patches.

The number of gold stars on the "C" patch represents the duration of the player's captaincy. Each star corresponds to one year of service as a captain. The stars change from white to gold for each subsequent year with the franchise. After five years of service, the player receives a gold "C" with four gold stars.

The NFL officially recognized team captains in 2007, allowing up to six members per club to wear the badge. However, some teams choose not to follow this system and elect captains based on their own procedures. Team captains are selected for their leadership skills and influence on the field.

The responsibilities of team captains include making decisions during a game, such as accepting or denying penalties. They play a vital role in leading their teammates and rallying them together. On defense, the middle linebacker is often chosen as the captain due to their central position and ability to communicate with the entire defense.

The "C" patch has become a ubiquitous part of the NFL, symbolizing the leadership and influence of team captains. It is a visible representation of their role and responsibilities on and off the field.

While the "C" patch is widely recognized, the rule regarding captaincy varies across teams. The NFL allows teams to designate up to six captains per season. However, the years of service as a captain do not carry over if a player switches teams. There is a movement to change this rule and allow players to retain their captaincy years when they change franchises.
