Tennessee Titans fans are expressing excitement over a tweet from the team suggesting a throwback reveal is set for the summer.
The Titans will wear their old Houston Oilers jerseys for a home game next season and have dropped a teaser hinting it will be unveiled in the summer of 2023. The video shows a black barrel with oil leaking out of the top and the words “coming summer 2023” written in white.
It would make for wild scenes if Titans players end up wearing Oilers throwbacks against the Houston Texans next season. Houston fans are unhappy with the fact that Tennessee owns the rights to said jerseys and the Titans would make it an even bigger affair if they were to rub salt in the wounds by wearing the old-time unis when they face their AFC South rivals.
There has been some debate over this in recent times, with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy suggesting Houston should have a right to the jerseys and former Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan pointing out that Oilers history belongs in Tennessee.
Jim Wyatt, a Titans beat writer, is of the view that the team will wear their Oilers gear against Houston but another beat writer, John McClain, has explained why that won’t happen.
“The exact game is still TBD, but I’ve already said I suspect it will be for the game vs the Texans,” Wyatt wrote in March. “Wouldn’t that make the most sense?”
It’s certainly an exciting prospect, but we’ll just have to wait and see.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
