In April, the Jacksonville Jaguars introduced their new uniforms of teal jerseys and white pants for all home games. They will still however wear white jerseys and black pants for road games. Owner Wayne Weaver wanted the Jaguars to have a consistent pattern. Over the years the Jaguar's really had no identity. With changing their logo and uniforms, it was easy to watch a game and say "what team is that?" It seems that the past 15 years have been a time of struggle in figuring out who the team really is. In 14 seasons we saw at least eight different logos and numerous uniform changes.

Well those days are over. Weaver vowed that you will be able to identify the Jaguar's when they take the field. Like teenagers, Jacksonville seemed to be changing clothes left and right and never had a uniformed look. Now Weaver states there will be no mistaking the team. You'll identify this team for years to come.

So has Jacksonville finally found their identity? Are they coming together as a team?  Perhaps with the new uniforms being unveiled it will bring a sense of togetherness amongst the players and staff. The new look has been classified as "timeless".

Head Coach Del Rio has stated that "the uniforms have a fresh new look and so does the team". So with a renewed since of freshness and a new energetic vibe, the Jaguars are setting the stage for what many fans hope will be a year of greatness.
