What is the significance of the stars?
From: NFL 6th (consecutive) year captain patch
the number of gold stars filled in represents the number of consecutive years a player has been captain for his team.
If each star is gold and the “C” is gold, then that player has been a captain for his team for 5 or more years(1).
The white stars represent an empty placeholder for the gold stars. For example, if a player has two gold stars and two white stars, that represents that player has been a captain for that team for two years. See the table below:
White | Gold | Meaning———————–0 | 4 + C | 5th year or more as captain for his team0 | 4 | 4th year as captain for his team1 | 3 | 3rd …2 | 2 | 2nd …3 | 1 | 1st …4 | 0 | represents 0 years of being a captain for his team** – I don”t think this exists to wear.
