New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Thursday that the league will unveil a new uniform that will be worn by all NFL players this season.
“It’s not going to be a traditional uniform.
It’s going to have a number of different colors,” Belichick said.
“We’ll have some new jerseys in the future.
But, it will be something that will look good, and it’s going be very simple.
And I think you’ll be able to tell that from the look.”
New England will wear the new uniform for the first time in the 2017 season on Sept. 9, when the team hosts the Atlanta Falcons in a preseason game.
The Patriots have worn the jersey for more than three decades, with some players wearing it before the Patriots first played in the Super Bowl in 1953.
The jersey is retired and replaced annually by the old one, which was worn by the Patriots in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
It was a uniform that has worn well in the past, Belichick said, but has fallen short in recent years.
“I think the new jersey looks great,” he said.
“We have a new look.
I think it’s a good look, and the look of the jerseys has been pretty good in the last three or four years.”
The Patriots won’t have any new uniforms in the regular season, though they are scheduled to wear a few new jerseys during the playoffs.
The NFL will announce uniforms for all the games in the first quarter of the NFL playoffs on Thursday.
The league announced Wednesday that the new NFL uniform for 2018 will be unveiled on Sept, 23.
The uniforms will include a new collar, a white stripe on the shoulder, white sleeves, red trim on the back of the pants, and a gray stripe on each arm.
The new uniform, which will be officially unveiled on Oct. 1, will be the first since the first one was worn in 2001.
