We’ve known for a while now that the Texans had new uniforms in the works for 2024, but now we’re getting a few more hints and details about the bigger picture.
That comes from a mailbag column by Drew Dougherty on the team’s website. Here’s one of the reader-submitted questions and Dougherty’s response:
Are we getting new uniforms for next season?
Yes. They’ll be revealed the week of the NFL Draft in April. If the Texans don’t play again at NRG Stadium in the playoffs, Sunday was the last time you’ll see them wear the home uniforms they’ve worn since 2002.
Just to be a bit more precise, the 2024 NFL draft begins on April 25, so Houston’s unveiling will presumably take place a day or two before that date. The timing here isn’t a surprise — draft week has become the preferred time period for NFL uni unveilings — but it’s good to have it confirmed.
Dougherty’s response also makes it clear that the home uniform will be changing. Again, not a surprise, but it’s good to have it spelled out.
The next reader-submitted question was also about uniforms:
Are the new uniforms going to have “H-Town Blue” being a primary color? Are we going to have a new logo as well?
No, and no.
But H-Town Blue will be incorporated in some of the four uniforms the Texans will wear next season.
The logo isn’t changing.
“H-Town Blue” refers to the Oilers’ shade of blue (or, if you prefer, Columbia blue), which has been the subject of a lot of uni speculation. Dougherty’s response makes it clear that this hue will be an accent color, not a main color. He also reveals that the team will have four uniforms, and that the logo is remaining the same.
The Texans’ final regular season game in their current uni set is scheduled for this Saturday night, when the play the Colts in Indianapolis.
