The New York Jets revealed a set of new uniform looks on Thursday night and they are nothing if not an homage to the Philadelphia Eagles. The team, along with the National Football League and Nike, designed and produced the new uniforms as one of the key pieces of an overall re-branding initiative for the organization.
They're here! The new New York Jets' uniforms that is.
Some really liked the new jerseys, and are ready to see them in action next season.
"Hey, look, I really feel like this is an unbelievable moment in Jets history", Johnson said. "Gotham Green" is a brighter, more modern green developed exclusively for the Jets. Before posing in the new uniforms, the players were asked to turn over their cell phones in an effort to protect the secret.
Alternate jerseys have Stealth Black jerseys with white numbers and black bottoms, with green stripes on both. "Our new uniforms are inspired by the toughness, grit and reslience of the entire New York City area".
The Jets, who last changed uniforms in 1998, will have a new, all-green helmet.
The team also revealed a refreshed primary logo, which takes the current logo and brings NY to the forefront. The numbers also have been updated with a new font that uses sloped angle, meant to evoke motion and force, according to Nike. The mark is created to feel more modern and forward-facing compared to the previous one.
"If we don't play well, the uniforms don't look good", said Jets QB Sam Darnold on stage. Also in attendance were Jets current players and Legends, WWE Superstars, and a variety of other celebrities and influencers.
