It has been 17 years since the Falcons have made a change to their uniforms. The last time they made an alteration was when Michael Vick was their starting quarterback.
Of course, Atlanta will probably maintain their primary colors of black and red on their new threads. However, the team could be going for a more modern look ,with other teams doing the same in recent years.
For the Buccaneers, their new uniforms were met with many positive reviews after getting a lot of criticism for their previous iteration last season. The Falcons are hoping to do the same when they show off their new uniforms to their fans next week.
With the 2020 NFL Draft less than three weeks away, the Falcons likely want to have their new uniforms in place before the rookies arrive. Sadly, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the rookies won’t be able to receive the new jerseys from Roger Goodell at the podium.
Nevertheless, the Falcons are going to look a bit different in 2020 after adding Todd Gurley. Now they are going to look literally differently, as well, with their new-look uniforms.
