Best Of Social Media: The Patriots React To 2020 Uniform Changes, Could A Classic Return?David Butler II - USA TODAY Sports

For the first time in 20 years, the New England Patriots debuted uniform changes to their home and away sets.

The new primary home set is a modified version of the color rush jerseys in use since 2016 while the team introduced a brand new white away set.

Both uniform sets kept the signature silver helmet and red visor.

Take a look for yourself in the introductory video below.

For fans disappointed that the Patriots didn’t make a return to the “Pat Patriot” jerseys of old, the team “hopes” to bring back the red throwbacks pending an NFL rule change to allow a helmet switch.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio in an email back in March that the league is discussing changing the rule that presently limits teams to just one helmet.

“There will be no change for the 2020 season,” McCarthy wrote. “There are ongoing discussions for a potential change for the 2021 season, but no decisions have been made.”

In a statement, Kraft Sports and Entertainment CMO Jen Ferron said the following about reintroducing throwbacks;

“Our primary uniforms in the modern era have been blue and white and they will remain so,” Ferron said. “We recognize that fans also have an affinity for the red ‘throwback’ uniform and we hope to incorporate that into our uniform rotation in the future.”

More to come on that front.

Following the uniform news, members of the team reacted to their new look over social media.
