The New York Jets’ new uniforms have been highly anticipated ever since the team announced the coming change in August of last year. The Gang Green scheduled a launch event for Thursday, but it appears the new threads have already been leaked on social media.

There has been quite a buzz around the new uniforms, including speculation that the Jets are abandoning their previous logo. Based on the pictures leaked, we don’t have much of an idea of what that logo will be. The obvious first reaction is the new green. The green is not as dark, but not as bright as a Kelly Green. A nice in-between that pleases both sides, well played. Aside from the new green, the jerseys sport a new stripe over the shoulder, and outlined numbers.
My honest take from them? Meh. I am a fan of the versatility and combinations, along with the new shade of green, but they didn’t shock me. What caught my eye most was the color rush, black uniform. Those are fire, and we’ve never seen the Jets wear all black. In terms of the black, the Jets knocked it out of the park. Another huge step is the move from white to green helmets. The Green dome and black face mask reminisces the Keyshawn Johnson days, and looks good at first glance. It also looks like the logo on the side will be the Jets new flagship emblem.
Overall, if these are the Jets new uniforms, I guess you could call me a fan. They certainly didn’t do a bad job, and it was definitely time for a change. The 2019 Jets are going to be extremely different from the 2018 and it was the perfect time to switch it up. Am I somebody who wears a jersey to a game? No, but if I was a game day jersey guy, I would rock a new Le’Veon Bell.
When all is said and done, the Jets’ last uniforms were not synonymous with winning, and that’s what matters most. The Jets are certainly on the way up, and with Adam Gase in town, it’s time for these uniforms to represent a winning franchise.
Keep an eye out on Thursday when we see the Jets “official” release, where we finally get to see the new logo as well. Let us know your’ thoughts on twitter @thejetpress and in the comment section!
