On Tuesday, the Jacksonville Jaguars unveiled their new uniforms for the 2013 NFL season.
The club and Nike released the new NFL Elite 51 Uniform design, in the hopes of giving the jerseys a more modern look. A statement released by the organization said the new style will honor the team’s military fan base.
“These uniforms balance our tradition with the future” said Jaguars Owner Shahid Khan. “The military-style badge on the front of the jersey speaks directly to the strong relationship we have with our hometown of Jacksonville. These new uniforms leave no doubt about our brand essence of being proud, bold and committed. I believe our new look will energize and inspire both our players and fans. It’s clearly a new era for the Jacksonville Jaguars.”
Khan purchased the Jaguars on January 4, 2012. He hopes that the change in uniforms will go hand in hand with a change in results on the field.
According to linebacker Paul Poslusny, the new uniforms could help the team more than some people might think.
“Our new all-black uniforms are sharp, fast and aggressive” said Posluszny. “When you put on your uniform, your entire mentality changes. You’re representing your family, your team and your fans. Putting on the uniform makes you want to give it everything you have on Sunday.”
Few NFL teams have seen as little success as Jacksonville in recent years. Last season, the Jaguars tied the Kansas City Chiefs for the worst record with two wins. The season before, the club won just five games. The 2007 season was the last time Jacksonville finished above .500.
