Jets uniforms are the indeed the leaked uniforms

- The New York Jets unveiled three new uniforms, along with a refreshed logo, at a Manhattan event earlier this evening. The other colors are spotlight white and stealth black. That came one day after they were leaked to much "fanfare".

"From the beginning of this project, it was clear to both the NFL and Nike creative teams that this uniform redesign needed to honor the team and its fans,"said ChrisStackhouse, Art Director, National Football League". NY won the AFC East that season and reached the AFC championship game. So this is a big deal for fans of Gang Green. As recently as this week, someone claimed to leak a picture of the new uniforms.

How do you like the new threads? The team used to have black trim - as modeled below by Boomer Esiason - but the team dumped the trim when they revamped their uniforms before the 1998 season.

The Jets also had some guy sing a bad song before the uniforms were unveiled and boy was that awkward. "That meant respecting the Jets rich tradition, while also taking an exciting leap forward with a bold, youthful, modern and fearless look which embodies the New York Jets".

The Jets are making the change from hunter green to Gotham green. Before posing in the new uniforms, the players were asked to turn over their cell phones in an effort to protect the secret. The green top and white trousers (Go full green for Gotham Green) are pretty cool as well.

"New York" is stitched across the front of the jerseys, and the lettering and numbers are a different font than past uniforms.

Three new logos will appear on the team's helmets, fan gear and related memorabilia. "Our new uniforms are inspired by the toughness, grit and reslience of the entire New York City area".

And here's the green uniform from last season. After making the AFC Championship Game in 2010, the Jets did not have another winning season until 2015, missing the playoffs with a loss to Buffalo and former head coach Rex Ryan on the final game of the season.

It's definitely a more flashy look, which we like, but it doesn't really make sense for New York/New Jersey.
