Cincinnati Bengals have come up with a total of three new uniform designs and revealed the brand new jerseys on Monday featuring the current faces, as well as a throwback to the franchise history.
In a hype video that was shared on the official website of the Bengals, stalwart quarterback Joe Burrow was featured alongside other faces from the current squad.
Uniting our past with our future: Bengals’ new uniform features the current and the former
The center point of the short clip was club legend Chad Johnson, the former wide receiver and six-time Pro Bowler, who was a Bengal player from his debut NFL season in 2001 until 2010, was seen rocking his old name “Ochocinco” in the new jersey.
“A new look for a new era. Uniting our past with our future,” the Bengals captioned the clip, which perfectly suits their motto with the six-time Pro-Bowler seen donning the same shirt with the current players. Check it out below-
The three jersey designs includes a black, a white and an orange one. The black one will be their home shirt, while the white and orange ones will be donned on the road as alternates.
“We wanted the new uniforms to have a clean, sleek design,” Bengals director of strategy and fan engagement Elizabeth Blackburn was quoted on the team’s “New Stripes” page, “We used our popular color rush jersey, helmet, and the beautiful Bengal tiger as inspiration to achieve an iconic bold look.”
“These uniforms excite me. They’re cool,” Joe Burrow told Sports Illustrated following the official revelation of the new shirts, “I think the fans will like them and they’ll be good for us.”
“The guys that are here are the kind of people that are going to take this organization to where we want to go. We’re the future. It’s going to be a fun ride,” the 24-year-old added.
