"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."
The new helmet features a unique fade from gold to a matte black finish in the front. The team’s logo, a bold Jaguar head, provides anchors the jersey, pants, helmet and glove.
“Our new all-black uniforms are sharp, fast and aggressive” said Jaguars linebacker Paul 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.”
