Happy Hump Day, y’all.
Did you guys get a chance to look at the new Tampa Bay jerseys? I think they did a great job bringing it back to the fan favorites and the uniforms they wore when they won their last Super Bowl. This is the idea I hope the Chargers have, as well. Bring back some of the past favorites, add a dash of modernism, and ta’daaaaa. The best jerseys in football, again.
If you haven’t looked yet, the new Atlanta Falcons jerseys were also leaked on social media and they’re.......different. I won’t give you my honest opinion and don’t want to ruin a surprise for anyone but if you really wanted to see them, just do a quick search on Twitter.
Other than that, enjoy the links guys and have a great Wednesday!
