‘Like a stick of butter’: Sauce Gardner rips NY Jets’ old uniforms

Appearing on the “Green Light” podcast, the NY Jets cornerback expressed his dislike for the team’s past uniforms.

Count one of the New York Jets’ star players as a detractor of the team’s old jerseys.

Appearing on the “Green Light” podcast with Chris Long, cornerback Sauce Gardner spoke about the team’s new jerseys and why he was not a fan of the previous ones.

“For starters, I’m only going on year three, so they’re probably 10 times better than the ones we had last year… the number one last year, the way it looked on the jersey was just like a stick of butter. Now, you can actually see the number one.”

Gardner also added that the team’s current practice jerseys still have the old number font, saying that he wishes he could change them but that he “isn’t bigger than the program.”

It is likely that Gardner’s comments are appreciated by the fanbase, and for good reason. The previous jerseys were generally viewed as lackluster and poorly designed. Many fans opined that the fonts did not look great and the coloring of the jerseys were poor.

Add in an extremely disliked logo, and you have branding that was arguably one of the worst in all of football. The poor play the team showed from 2019-2023 did not help the situation either.

With new jerseys in 2024, the Jets have a much better look and feel to them than in previous years. They also have a better logo and a better overall design than in years past.

Gardner is clearly a huge fan of the new look, but now it is on him and the rest of the Jets to have their play on the field look as good as the uniforms.
