Elizabeth Blackburn Shares Key Details About the Bengals' New Uniforms

The uniforms will be unveiled on April 19

CINCINNATI — The Bengals will unveil their new uniforms on Monday, April 19. They made the announcement on Wednesday morning. 

Bengals Director of Strategy and Engagement Elizabeth Blackburn gave some interesting details about the new look in a recent interview with Dan Hoard.

"Fans and players love our color rush uniform because it is sleek. It is bold. We wanted to build on that," Blackburn said on the Bengals Booth Podcast. "In addition we were factoring in some elements of the existing uniform that we knew were ready for an update. So combining some particular pin points from our existing uniform that were frankly in style in 2003, but style has changed since then ... It was kind of eliminate some of these particular with the broad goal of achieving a sleek, timeless, iconic, bold design."

Just how many different jersey-pants combinations will there be?

"There will be three different jerseys and three different pants that give us at max a combination of nine," Blackburn told Hoard. "We'll work with the team to decide—I'm not sure we'll really plan to use and fans will see all nine of them this year. There's one that sort of really is meant to be together."

We have an idea of what the Bengals' "new stripes" will look like, but we haven't seen every version. It's safe to assume that the primary colors on the three jerseys will be black, orange and white. 

There's been plenty of discussion about potentially adding a throwback uniform this offseason. That's not going to happen, but that could change in the near future.  

"Throwback uniforms are a possibility," Blackburn said. "Going through the new uniform design and process for this year, we just wanted to introduce our new uniforms and really showcase our new uniform and the new uniform combinations we just talked about for this year. So that's why fans will only see three jerseys this year and no throwback. It is something that we're thinking about for future years."

The Bengals have had the same uniforms since 2004. That changes on Monday. For more details, listen to Hoard's entire interview with Blackburn below.
