— Tennessee Titans (@Titans) May 2, 2023
We’ve known for a while that the Tennessee Titans would be breaking out Oilers throwbacks in 2023 — beat writer Jim Wyatt spilled the beans on that news two months ago. But now we have our first confirmation from the team itself, as well as a time frame for the unveiling.
That news came in a short teaser video that the Titans posted on their social media channels on Tuesday (although I didn’t become aware of it until this morning). As you can see above, it shows a helmet being dipped in a barrel of oil — a not-so-subtle hint of the upcoming throwback. A text overlay says, “Coming Summer 2023,” so the unveiling is still more than a month away.
The Titans join three other NFL teams that have announced (but not yet unveiled) new throwbacks for 2023: the Eagles, Bucs, and Seahawks. In addition, I’ve heard behind-the-scenes chatter about another NFL team possibly adding a throwback this season — stay tuned for more on that.
