In June 2021, the NFL announced a policy that would permit clubs to wear two different helmets beginning in the 2022 season. The previous one-helmet rule was the complication, as Lurie wasn’t content with using decals on helmets. Although there was never a regulation prohibiting wearing the jerseys, he desired a matching helmet.
Last season, the Eagles took advantage by wearing black jerseys with black alternate helmets. In 2023, Kelly Green is a full-go.
“We really wanted to go back to the classic, Eagles green, Kelly green jersey, but we wanted to do it the right way, and the right way was to have a matching helmet,” said Lurie at the NFL Annual Meetings last year. “And for whatever different reasons existed, it wasn’t until June of 2021 that the NFL has allowed us to come up with a second helmet. “
If you remember the 90s and the 80s with Randall [Cunningham] and Reggie [White] and Jerome [Brown] and Seth [Joyner] and Clyde [Simmons] and everybody, it’s going to be that uniform, and it’s going to be as identical to what that existed as possible.”
Good luck getting your hands on one when the jerseys eventually go on sale.
