Last month there were lots of rumors about the Jets redesignating their “New York Sack Exchange” throwbacks as their primary uniforms for 2024. As you may recall, I did exclusive interviews with the two main guys behind those rumors.
It turns out that they were right. The final play of last night’s Super Bowl had barely ended when the Jets announced that the white throwback will indeed become the team’s primary look next season, with green and black versions added to the mix. The new set will be unveiled in April, presumably during the week leading up to the 2024 NFL draft.
The announcement officially marks the end of the team’s current uniform set. And not a moment too soon, as the arena-esque design was one of the worst in NFL history. It’s worth remembering that while this set was used for the requisite five-year minimum term, it takes two years to put an NFL uni change into production, which means the Jets had already decided after only three years that the current set was a failure. Kinda makes you wonder why they went ahead with it in the first place, no?
Since Aaron Rodgers like conspiracy theories, I’ll float this one: He faked his Achilles injury so he could get out of wearing that awful uniform. And really, who could blame him?
