The Atlanta Falcons had a plan in place to release their new uniforms on April 14th. Somebody did not cooperate with that plan and leaked pictures one week before it was set to go down.
It forced the franchise to release them officially today.
The Falcons unveiled new uniforms that feature four jerseys – black, white, gradient and a 1966 throwback – and four pants – black, white, red and 1966 throwback.
The logo remained untouched.
“The Falcons have a proud tradition of bringing people and communities together from all walks of life, and our shared passion for winning football helps fuel this team,” Blank said. “As I stated when I purchased the Falcons in 2002, my promise remains the same: to bring a championship team to both our city and our community — on and off the field.”
“There’s just a feeling to it,” quarterback Matt Ryan said. “I can’t explain it when you look in your locker and that color and head to toe in black is going to be good, too. I don’t know what it is, but I know there’s a feeling that comes with it for the guys, too, when we see that in our lockers.”
Defensive tackle Grady Jarrett:
“I think these new uniforms will give us, give the city a new energy and I think people are going to really be excited about it,” Jarrett said. “ We know this is a tough time for everyone right now, but we hope this can bring some excitement and light to our city and our fans. Around the whole world everybody knows what ATL stands for, so we’re proud to represent that, today and every day.”
