A popular hashtag on Twitter has been getting serious momentum over the past few months in regards to new uniforms possibly coming to the New York Jets in 2018. Is it truly happening?
If you love Twitter, you’ve undoubtedly seen the hashtag #JetsNewUnis trending here and there. There have been a lot of rumors circulating over the past few months about the New York Jets possibly debuting new uniforms at some point this upcoming season.
Could the selection of future franchise quarterback Sam Darnold have something to do with the Jets dropping a new look for 2018? It’s no secret that Darnold is likely to start at some point during the regular season but there is a good chance a new uniform or alternate uniform could be a reality due to a very important milestone coming up.
2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Jets Super Bowl III championship. Ideally, the Jets will most likely have a lot of home events and giveaways to commemorate the only championship in franchise history.

Expect to see the Jets wear perhaps a throwback 1960s jersey for a regular season game to honor the Super Bowl III championship season. Could a hybrid jersey be in the works as well? Perhaps featuring that famous 1960s design but with a more modern look/color?
Your guess is as good as mine but as far as a completely new uniform being debuted this season, it wouldn’t make sense. Perhaps maybe in 2019 if the Jets deem Darnold their full-time starter maybe but for 2018, it’s unlikely. It likely revolves around this huge moment in Jets history.
Considering it’s the 50th Anniversary of this huge accomplishment by the Jets, expect to see them do a throwback uniform game to hype it all up. It’ll be a huge celebration at MetLife Stadium likely to feature pre-game festivities, a halftime ceremony, and maybe even fireworks too.
