New England Patriots Offer 'Jersey Guarantee' to fans - espnBoston The New England Patriots will become the first NFL franchise to offer rebates to anyone who buys a jersey of a player who is no longer under contract to the team within a year of the purchase. New England PatriotsThe Pats are hoping to give fans more confidence to buy jerseys. On Thursday morning, the team sent an email about what it calls the jersey guarantee to everyone on its mailing list. If fans purchase jerseys from the team website or stadium store and the players whose names are on the back leave the team within a year of purchase, those fans will receive a 25 percent discount toward the price of the next Patriots jersey they buy. I'd like to read into this that #24 won't be a one and done with the Pats as I and many have speculated.
