Bengals unveil new uniforms

The Bengals were slated to reveal their new uniforms at 9 a.m. on Monday morning. But they apparently moved up that timeline, unveiling their new set of jerseys and pants with a Twitter video featuring former wide receiver Chad Johnson early in the 8 o’clock hour.

Cincinnati’s new uniforms feature the same helmet the franchise has used for decades. But the jerseys have been re-tooled to make for a simpler, cleaner look.

The Bengals’ primary jersey will be black with three orange stripes across each shoulder. The primary white jersey is similar to its former white color rush uniform with black stripes across each shoulder. But the sleeve of the jersey is now white. And the team’s orange alternate jersey sports black stripes across each shoulder.

Each of the three jerseys has “Bengals” across the chest above the numbers.

The team also has three sets of pants that can go with each jersey: white with black stripes, white with orange stripes, and black with orange stripes.

“We wanted the new uniforms to have a clean, sleek design,” Bengals director of strategy and fan engagement Elizabeth Blackburn said on the team’s “New Stripes” page. “We used our popular color rush jersey, helmet, and the beautiful bengal tiger as inspiration to achieve an iconic bold look.”

Time will tell if the jerseys will indeed become an iconic look, but they do offer an opportunity to purchase something new as the team moves into its second year with Joe Burrow at quarterback.

  1. These look fantastic. Clean and simple and really bring in tiger’s stripes to the jerseys and pants in a nice, clean way. Good upgrade for the Bengals. I’d put these up there with the new Chargers uniforms.

  2. Bengals aren’t the only one needing a make over. Saints, Cardinals, Falcons, NY football giants, Seahawks….

  3. Uniforms look way better. Not so busy. Pretty cool that Ochocincho modelled a jersey too – the guy looks as though he could still suit up!

  4. So they just ditched the black shoulders and the orange strip on the away jerseys. Had to google the old uniforms just to see what the difference is. Why was such a big deal made of this?

  5. Looks like they learned the lesson of the all white color rush uniforms – simplicity is better. Still, would like to see the text above the numbers go, but if all I can gripe about are minor details they they’ve done pretty well.

    The old Falcon uniforms of the 60’s and 70’s were great. I miss the old Broncos uniforms of that era and also the Houston Oilers uniforms as well.

  7. Not a big fan of the pants, the white pants with black stripes are terrible. But the rest of the uni looks great.
