'New Legacy!' Will New York Jets' New Uniforms Bring Different Results?

The New York Jets took another step in refurbishing the franchise's lackluster image on Monday.

One year after acquiring future Hall-of-Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers to fill a position of dire need, the Jets are literally changing their look.

In a highly-anticipated social media event, New York unveiled brand new uniforms with an old school touch. The Jets' social media team posted a video featuring the new uniforms with the message "A new legacy begins."

The centerpiece of the new kit is a return to an all green helmet featuring the 1980s era white Jets logo wordmark. There are three different versions of the uniform - green jerseys and white pants, white jerseys and green paints, all-black alternate look.

If the initial replies are any indication, Twitter users appear overwhelmingly pleased by the execution of the uniform change.

"The green looks so legit!! New Legacy!!" said @JetsTalk247.

"Did not disappoint," commented @RealistPF.

Meanwhile, @DJJoeyDiSarno offered a more sobering take by writing "nice, now let’s make the playoffs please."

The Jets have not played the NFL playoffs in any of the last 13 seasons. Despite a Top 5 defense for the second year in a row, New York finished the 2023 campaign with a 7-10 record.
