The Tennessee Titans unveiled their new uniforms with six different players showing off the various combinations of new uniforms that have been in the works for more than two years.
Wearing various combinations of navy blue, white and Columbia blue, the Titans showed off the first uniform change since the team first rechristened itself as the Titans back in 1999.
An enthusiastic crowd filled up about two blocks on Lower Broadway downtown for the unveiling and the free concert afterward by Florida-Georgia Line.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota began the unveiling of the new uniforms, wearing the navy on navy and also sporting the brand new navy blue helmet the Titans will don, beginning this year.
Other players who came onto the stage to show different variations and schemes of the uniform included tight end Delanie Walker, defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, linebacker Brian Orakpo, left tackle Taylor Lewan and safety Kevin Byard.
“I love them,” Orakpo, who had an all white uniform look, said. ‘I was kind of skeptical at first with the whole new uniform change and all that. But these, we’re going to love them and I know all the other guys are going to love them too.”
Byard was pleased with the change as well.
“These jerseys are really going to represent,” said Byard, who wore a navy blue jersey and white pants. “I think it’s going to be exciting for the whole city and I hope to see a bunch of them up in the stands this year.”
The Titans also introduced the four players who modeled those inaugural uniforms some 19 years ago – bringing out Craig Hentrich, Frank Wycheck, Blaine Bishop and Eddie George in the old jerseys, only to reveal new jerseys underneath them at the end of the unveiling ceremony.
“These old Titans uniforms are now officially throwbacks,” George said after the ceremony.
Though it was not shown at the unveiling, there is also the possibility of a red alternate jersey as well.
