Kelly Green is Back! The NFL Has Approved Alternate Helmets Starting in 2022!
For years the Eagles faithful has been lobbying for the return of the Kelly green jerseys and ol’ school helmets. The Eagles throwback jerseys have always been a fan favorite but with new NFL rules teams were regulated to one helmet per season. This closed the door for many teams that often wore throwback unis mid-season.
The new rule which was passed today will now allow teams two helmets per season, opening the door for various color rush jerseys. Eagles fans could see a variety of Kelly green jerseys including the home and away versions. NFL insider Adam Schefter was one of the first to break the news while his colleague Ian Rapoport shared the statement prepared by the NFL.
This means the Eagles will be able to wear their kelly green alternates. https://t.co/RL44ZdZEVC
