Paul here, giving Phil a quick breather. As you all know by now, the Titans will be wearing Houston Oilers throwbacks this season. But in an odd juxtaposition, they’re also going to be celebrating their 25th season as the Titans, and yesterday they unveiled a new logo to commemorate that milestone (which is also their 27th season in Tennessee, because they played two seasons as the Tennessee Oilers before becoming the Titans).
According to the Titans’ website, the new logo will be worn as a rear-helmet decal. It’s not clear whether it will be added for the team’s final preseason game Friday, or if they’ll wait until their regular season opener on Sept. 10.
This is the fourth time the team has created a logo to mark a season milestone of the “Titans” name. The first two, in 2008 and 2013, were worn as jersey patches; the third one, in 2018, was worn as a rear-helmet decal:
In addition, in 2009 the Titans had a logo to mark the franchise’s 50th season as both the Oilers and Titans. To my knowledge, this one was never worn as part of the uniform:
