On Tuesday, the Atlanta Falcons announced on Twitter that they would be switching up their uniforms for the upcoming 2020 season. This came after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers dropped their new set of uniforms.
However, before the team was officially able to reveal their fresh new look on April 14, it appears someone beat them to the punch by leaking pictures on social media. Yikes.
Early reactions are mixed, with a majority of fans having a hard time adjusting to the first new look for the team in 17 seasons. The blending of colors on their red primary jersey is unique, and the black jersey that looked fly on Michael Vick will surely generate some excitement.
The black matte helmets are also a new addition that will look awesome under the lights of Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Regardless of the reaction on social media, Falcons fans can only hope the change in uniforms brings a much-needed shift in performance on the field. Atlanta is 14-18 over the last two seasons and really need to get back to the playoffs to avoid having to clean house in 2020.
