Cornerback Sauce Gardner Pleased With New York Jets’ Uniform Change

The New York Jets promoted their “Legacy” throwback uniforms to full-time road status this offseason, unveiling matching home and alternate sets in the process, and cornerback Sauce Gardner couldn’t be happier.

In fact, during a recent appearance on former NFL defensive end Chris Long’s Green Light podcast, the two-time first-team All-Pro compared the shape of his No. 1 on the Jets’ previous set to a stick of butter.

“I think they’re probably 10 times better than the ones we had last year,” Gardner said. “The No. 1 last year, the way it looked on a jersey was just like a stick of butter, but now you can actually see the actual No. 1.”

The uniforms, which debuted last season as a nod to the “New York Sack Exchange,” notably feature a green or black helmet with a white or green facemask and a modernized version of the Jets’ 1978-97 logo on the sides.

The green home, white road and black alternate jerseys, meanwhile, include solid-colored numbers, two contrasting stripes on the sleeves and a contrasting collar, while the matching pants include a single stripe down the legs.

“Just the way the pattern, the two stripes on each shoulder, everything just looks nice about it,” Gardner said. “The helmets, of course, the new logo is fire, the white face mask. I love everything about the new ones.”

Gardner hasn’t ditched the old font completely, though, as New York’s practice jerseys still use the old number font. He wishes he could change that, too, but doesn’t want to be “bigger than the program.”
