Let me get the news-y bit of this out of the way up top: as of this moment, there’s no news on any uniform changes for the upcoming season. I’ve asked around a little bit at Redskins Park, and no one has heard anything about any changes to the helmet, the jersey, the colors … nothing.
The rumors are flying, though. There’s a 15-plus page thread on ExtremeSkins about the possibility, which appears to be Larry Michael’s fault. (Sort of. He’s fun to blame, anyhow.) We’ve been receiving a lot of questions about uniform changes on the Redskins Nation TV show — it’s a fun, easy offseason topic — and it’s easy to push Michael’s buttons about. It appears that someone heard him discussing the possibility, but assumed that meant it was a done deal.
It is not a done deal. Not by any means. Like I said above, it doesn’t appear to actually be, you know, HAPPENING. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t people out there who have come up with some suggestions of what a new uniform could look like.
(To avoid any of the confusion that plagued the last similar discussion, let me make this perfectly clear in bold text: All of the images in this post are fan creations that I’ve found online. These are NOT official, they do NOT come from the team, and — for the third time — at the moment nothing even remotely like this is happening.)
Anyhow, here are some of the things people have come up with. (Click on images to enlarge.)
