New York Jets unveil new uniforms for the 2019 season

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The New York Jets will have a new look when they take the field for their 60th season in 2019.

The Jets unveiled their new uniforms and tweaked team logo on Thursday night, with team colors they are calling "Gotham Green, Spotlight White and Stealth Black."

It is the first time in over 20 years that the Jets have revamped their uniforms, apparel and merchandise.

Along with new green and white jerseys and pants, the Jets will have black alternate uniforms for the first time.

The jerseys also feature "New York" in small letters across the chest and above the players' numbers.

A number of players walked out in the uniforms at Gotham Hall in Manhattan, including quarterback Sam Darnold and safety Jamal Adams.

"We've got the young quarterback, we've got the new coach, the theme of this team is 'Take Flight'. We're ready to enter a new era," said Jets CEO Christopher Johnson. "I think that this new uniform symbolizes that."

The helmet is a shiny green, replacing the white headgear the players wore the last 20 years. The new logo features the letters "JETS" in white, with a white football under it.

It's all part of a team-wide rebranding through a process that began in 2014. The new colors and logo will be plastered throughout MetLife Stadium for home games, and there will be modifications made to the end zones and walling inside the stadium, along with video graphics.
