Antonio Brown's No. 1 didn't last very long.

Listen to your team news NOW.

The new Patriots wide receiver was present at practice Thursday and wore No. 17, according to those on site. This doesn't have a great history with the team, as some former players to wear the number are Chad Jackson, Taylor Price, Greg Salas, Aaron Dobson and Riley McCarron.

Brown's normal number of 84 is currently occupied by Benjamin Watson.

Like Wednesday, the Patriots had perfect attendance.

The team will practice again Friday before taking on the Dolphins Sunday in Miami.
