A new helmet design has entered the New York Jets’ rotation

Wake up New York Jets fans, the team has a present for you.

Following the NFL’s recent rule change allowing teams to wear two different helmets during the 2022 season, multiple clubs have since added new or throwback lids to their uniform ensemble, including the Saints, Texans, Giants, Cowboys, and Panthers.

Now, according to owner Woody Johnson, it’s Gang Green’s turn to spice things up.

Early Friday morning, Johnson teased the release of a new design. He tweeted a six-second video of the Jets’ current helmet on a table, before cutting to what is assumed to be the new design covered by a cloth. The video ends just before said cloth is pulled away, hiding the final reveal.

Adding to the hype, Johnson simply captioned the video with the “eyeballs” emoji, and nothing else.

A half-hour later, Johnson made the official announcement.

The Jets will be adding Stealth Black helmets to their lineup, matching their Stealth Black alternate jerseys already in use.

On top of revealing the design, Johnson also provided the dates of when the new domes will be in action.

New York will wear their new helmets during three home games in 2022: October 30 against the Patriots, November 27 against the Bears, and December 22 against the Jaguars.

Jets players seem to love the new design. Elijah Moore, Braxton Berrios, and C.J. Uzomah provided their stamps of approval.

What do you think of the new design? Lets us know in the comments below.

These are disgusting!!

At a time when the team culture has changed and optimism is as high as it’s been in a decade the Jets had the opportunity to reconnect and bring together fans across generations by bringing back the Kelly Green or SB winning white helmets, Woody and company decide to introduce this black. It’s an overused color and has no tradition in Jets’ history.

Not only will they introduce the color, but they decided to do it against their biggest rival Patoilets, in a game everybody will be salivating over after the pounding they gave us last year. They are going to have that horrid black, instead of the 80’s White on White with Kelly Green helmets or the OG White helmets we stoned them with in the Divisional round. And… to make matters worse the other two games they are wearing them the opposing team ALSO wears black helmets. I’m sure that will help Zach find the right receivers.

I’ve been a Woody apologist and have always thought he gets more grief than he should but it’s decisions like this that demonstrate he is not a real die hard, hang on every game fan. There is a disconnect between him and his traditional fan base.

I’m sure some people will love them, just my opinion. BTW…the Eagles also “unveiled their alternate black helmets”

That logo is god awful, though. If they’re intent on keeping a football as part of the design, the least they could is either use the old jet silhouette from the 80s logo OR a head-on profile of the silhouette of an F-22 Raptor as the “stitching” of the football. Check the time and date stamp. If this becomes a thing, I want compensation for the design.
