Browns to unveil new uniforms this month

Cleveland Browns Executive Vice President JW Johnson announced Wednesday night that the team’s new uniforms would be released later this month.

The team announced new uniforms would be coming for the 2020 season just over a year ago. The current iteration of uniforms that debuted in 2015 received a lukewarm response and are being retired as quickly as the NFL allows after only five seasons.

“I think we got it right this time,’’ Dee Haslam said last year.

The Browns released their 2015 change about two weeks before the start of that year’s NFL Draft. While restrictions on gatherings will likely negate a release party this time around, though Odell Beckham Jr. has reportedly been involved in photo shoots for the expected release.

Tennessee Titans trade up in 7-round 2020 mock draft post-free agency

Tennessee Titans mock draft
The Tennessee Titans still have needs to address in the 2020 NFL Draft and trade up to get their guy in this post-free agency 7-round mock draft.

The Tennessee Titans have been surprisingly quiet thus far in 2020 NFL free agency, only agreeing to terms with three players who donned different jerseys last season. Considering the team was only a solid half of football away from their first Super Bowl appearance in over 20 years this past season, you’d think general manager Jon Robinson would have chosen to have been maybe a little more aggressive this offseason.

Signing special teams ace Nick Dzubnar and backup/swing tackle Ty Sambrailo were fine under-the-radar moves. The addition of veteran pass rusher Vic Beasley Jr. also riskily addresses a major need for the team. But the rest of their work has been re-signing their own, most notably locking up Ryan Tannehill to a four-year deal and franchise tagging Derrick Henry.

While the Titans may still be gearing up to add a big-name free agent, Robinson and the rest of the front office would be naive to rest on their laurels with how the roster is currently constructed.

Since taking over the personnel duties for Tennessee, Robinson has been anything but stagnant when it comes to the NFL Draft. His first draft in charge in 2016, he dealt the number one overall pick for a king’s ransom of picks and has continued to be active in every draft since. When looking at what the Titans will do come late April, that’s important to keep in mind.

The pass rush is the biggest need to address but cornerback, offensive line, running back and speed at wide receiver are all key to address in the 2020 NFL Draft. Even if there are veteran additions to come, it’s crucial the Titans add an influx of younger, cheaper talent. And that’s the goal in this 7-round mock draft after the first wave of free agency.

ED YETUR GROSS-MATOS
Round 1 Pick 21
Penn State Nittany Lions
Trade Alert: Titans trade No. 29, 93 and 2021 late-round pick to Eagles for No. 21 and 103

Jon Robinson and Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have done business together in the past and continue to do so to get things started in this 7-round mock draft.

In this scenario, “Trader Jon” doesn’t want to risk missing out one of the most talented defensive linemen in this 2020 draft class who’s falling down the draft boards. Subsequently, he moves up eight spots in a deal with the Eagles. The trade involves the two teams swapping first- and third-round picks with Philadelphia receiving an extra late-round pick next year.

After Robinson decided to deal star defensive lineman Jurrell Casey to the Denver Broncos in a pure salary dump move, he needs to get more firepower on the defensive line. Moving Jeffery Simmons into Casey’s role, he now gets Yetur Gross-Matos.

Coming out of Penn State, Gross-Matos was able to tally a total of 9.5 sacks this year after racking up eight the year prior. Gross-Matos gives the Titans a potential playmaker on the defensive line, where they desperately need it.

Head coach Mike Vrabel will be salivating to get his hands on Gross-Matos, who possesses the rare combination of prototypical size (6-5, 270 pounds) and absolutely freakish athleticism and flexibility.

RB JK DOBBINS
Round 2 Pick 61
Ohio State Buckeyes

The NFL as a whole has had some bad luck when it comes to hefty running back contracts, meaning Robinson made the smart move tagging Henry. While he gets a solid pay-day, it allows the team flexibility moving forward with no commitment past 2020. If Henry does it again then great, pay the man — but it protects the team if he begins to show some wear and tear.

Continuing to dive into the Big Ten talent pool, JK Dobbins is the pick in the second round. That’s the same round Robinson selected Henry in 2016. At the time, Tennessee had DeMarco Murray on the roster but added a stud in the draft. They do the same here.

Dobbins won’t amaze people with his speed or his open-field moves for that matter. What the Ohio State product does give the team is another bruising, one-cut back who is still athletic enough to make the big play. Coming off of a 2,000-yard season, Dobbins can either help prolong the career of Derrick Henry by splitting carries- or become his eventual replacement after 2020.

QB JALEN HURTS
Round 3 Pick 103
Oklahoma Sooners
Pick via Eagles

As a part of the earlier trade, the Titans are picking a little later in the third round than originally scheduled. This is the only selection where the idea of “win now” is thrown out of the window for a methodical selection that can not only pay dividends now but down the line as well.

Selecting Jalen Hurts would be an extremely polarizing move in the eyes of fans. The team just committed to Tannehill on a four-year, $118 million deal and, with the Titans being so close to making it to the Super Bowl, shouldn’t every opportunity to add to this team be for them to win now, not years down the line?

What must not be forgotten is Tannehill’s lengthy list of injuries before joining the Titans. If history were to repeat itself, the team only has one other option on the roster: Logan Woodside. Obviously, the best-case scenario here would be for Tannehill to stay healthy while prepping Hurts to become the eventual starter or even a prime trade chip down the line.
Tennessee Titans mock draft

WR QUEZ WATKINS
Round 5 Pick 161
Tennessee Titans

Trade Alert: Titans trade No. 175, 225 and 238 to Buccaneers for No. 161

In the fifth round, Robinson gets aggressive again as he trades up with the Buccaneers to select the speedy pass-catcher out of Southern Miss, Quez Watkins. To do so, he gives up his own fifth-round pick while also parting with a pair of seventh-round selections as well.

Throughout his college career with the Golden Eagles, Watkins tore up the competition, particularly in his final two years. Earning back-to-back All-Conference-USA honors, the 6-0 wide receiver had 55 catches for 1,024 yards and five scores in 2019 after going for 72 receptions, 889 yards and nine touchdowns in 2018.

Robinson loves production from small-school receivers, as he saw with Tajae Sharpe previously. Thus, making a late-round move up for Watkins would make sense.

CB L’JARIUS SNEED
Round 7 Pick 243
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs

Assuming the Titans and current free agent cornerback Logan Ryan can work out a deal to reunite in the coming weeks, the need at the position will be for depth only entering the draft. But with the team losing valuable backup corner LeShaun Sims to the Cincinnati Bengals in free agency, the need for someone to step into that role is pivotal.

L’Jarius Sneed is a defensive back who possesses adequate size and strength with good ball skills, securing multiple interceptions for touchdowns during his collegiate career. Sneed also has experience at both corner and safety, which is the kind of versatility Robinson loves to have when it comes to the depth players on the roster. He may never amount to being a consistent presence in the starting lineup but there are certainly worst options out there to have as a seventh-rounder.

‘Madden 20’: First look at Tom Brady, other NFL stars in new uniforms

Dozens of NFL players have switched teams during the first week of NFL free agency. Tom Brady is a Buccaneer, DeAndre Hopkins is a Cardinal — the whole league is going to look a lot different next season.

Thanks to game animation from EA Sports’ “Madden NFL 20,” Sporting News presents an early showcase of how some of the biggest names will look in new uniforms.

Tom Brady, QB, Buccaneers

We don’t know exactly what the six-time Super Bowl champion will look like in a Buccaneers jersey, because the team is unveiling new uniforms next month. It is expected that the uniforms will remain similar to last season’s, with the exception of the orange trim.

Stefon Diggs, WR, Bills

Diggs is headed to Buffalo for a slew of draft picks after expressing his frustration in Minnesota. He immediately becomes the No. 1 target for quarterback Josh Allen in an AFC East that suddenly appears wide-open.

DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Cardinals

The Texans essentially traded Hopkins for a second-round pick and David Johnson, an expensive running back who barely played down the stretch in 2019. The trade sent the NFL world into shock, especially after the Vikings got much more in exchange for Diggs. The Cardinals aren’t complaining one bit.

Todd Gurley, RB, Falcons

The Rams are paying $20 million against the cap for Gurley not to play for them in 2020. He’s heading back to Georgia to attempt to revive his career. He’s only 25, so it seems like a good risk for Atlanta to take.

Melvin Gordon, RB, Broncos

Gordon is leaving the Chargers but staying in the AFC West with the Broncos. His holdout at the beginning of last season didn’t pay off, but he’ll have two chances a year to show the Chargers what they’re missing.

Here’s a sneak peek at what the new Bucs jerseys might look like

Nov 13, 2016; Tampa, FL, USA; A view of an official Tampa Bay Buccaneers helmet on the sidelines at Raymond James Stadium. The Buccaneers won 36-10. Mandatory Credit: Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a team on the rise after a strong 4-2 finish to the 2019 season. So, what better way to turn the page and look towards the future than with a jersey redesign?

The Bucs announced recently that they will be ditching their uniforms — which came into effect back in 2014 — in favor of something a little less… well, ridiculous. (Tampa Bay’s jerseys were one of the nicest in the league before someone thought alarm clock numbers would be a nice upgrade.)

While we’ll have to wait until April for the official reveal, Paul Lukas over at Uni Watch has seen the new jerseys and given us a description of what they look like.

Here’s part of what Lukas said:

• There are two jerseys (red and white) and two sets of pants (pewter and white). The pewter pants will not be as shiny/metellic as the old ones, because that’s the reality of the fabric being used these days.

• The red jersey has white block numbers outlined in black (but no orange layer, at least that I could see). The “Buccaneers” wordmark has been restored to the chest, but this time it’s rendered in black (not white, as it had been in the Super Bowl set). Block TV numbers are on the shoulders. The Bucs’ current ship logo appears on the sleeves. The back of the jersey has the same white numbers outlined in black, along with white nameplate lettering.

While Lukas was unable to take actual photos of the jerseys, he did have some help in putting together a rendering of what they look like.

Take a look.

It definitely looks like they are going back to the old style they wore prior to the change in 2014. Sadly, it appears as though we won’t be getting any orange uniforms this time around. But, hey, this is a step in the right direction.

What do you guys think?

Minkah Fitzpatrick keeping 39 as his jersey number

It’s now safe for Steelers fans to buy those 39 jerseys.

Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick announced on social media Monday that he is sticking with the number he wore for 14 games last season after the trade from Miami.

“I promised myself if it treats me well, if I make the Pro Bowl or All-Pro or whatever it may be, I am going to keep it,” Fitzpatrick said. “I did those things so I am going to stick with it. I’m keeping No. 39.”

Fitzpatrick previously wore No. 29 in Miami, but Steelers safety Kameron Kelly already was wearing that number when Fitzpatrick arrived. NFL rules prohibit players from changing numbers during the season while playing for the same team, prohibiting Kelly from switching.

Kelly no longer plays for the Steelers, allowing Fitzpatrick to switch back to 29 before next season if he so desired. He chose instead to stick with 39.

“Get your jerseys and show some love,” Fitzpatrick wrote.

He did the same thing at Alabama: After being assigned 29 as a freshman, Fitzpatrick earned freshman All-America honors so he kept 29 for his entire college career.

In only his second season, Fitzpatrick made Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors in 2019.

Report: Broncos’ Free-Agent CB Chris Harris, Jr. Met With ‘At Least 24 Teams’ At Combine

Chris Harris, Jr. is relishing his opportunity to test the NFL free-agent market. The Denver Broncos’ four-time Pro Bowl cornerback has a lot to look forward to if there’s any veracity to the latest buzz coming out of the NFL Combine.

It would make sense that the Dallas Cowboys would have interest in Harris, as the team is poised to lose CB Byron Jones to free agency. Considering the Broncos’ reported interest in Jones, it wouldn’t be inconceivable to see him end up swapping jerseys with Harris.

However, with a market that includes 75% of the NFL, if Dallas wants Harris, they’ll have to pay the fee, which is the same reason Jones is hitting unrestricted free agency. Dallas doesn’t have the coin.

The Philadelphia Eagles are another team who could pursue Harris. Denver7’s Troy Renck reported on Monday that the Raiders, Texans, Jets, and Lions also could be among those teams interested in signing Harris. The market for Harris is going to be significant which means that if the Broncos want to re-sign him, they’re going to have to compete financially.

On a positive note, Dove Valley insider Cecil Lammey of 104.3 the FAN reported on Monday upon his return from the Combine that the Broncos are still very much in play for Harris, Jr., as is fellow free-agent Derek Wolfe. Speaking specifically of Harris, Wolfe and Shelby Harris, Lammey likes the Broncos’ odds of bringing back two of the big-three.

I think Wolfe and Chris Harris might be the two the Broncos can most likely keep.

Spotrac has Harris’ value at just over $11 million per season. Considering Harris, Jr.’s soon-to-be 31-year-old age, perhaps there’s some veracity to Spotrac’s projection of his value on the open market.

However, we’ve heard since last spring that Harris is intent on becoming one of, if not the, highest-paid corners in the NFL. That would mean $15M/year or more. That rains on Spotrac’s parade somewhat.

If Harris’ camp indeed met with 24 NFL teams at the Combine, that means his value on the open market is going to approach the top end. It wouldn’t surprise me if he re-set the market, even considering his age, on a relatively short-term deal. Think two- to three-year deal.

If that’s what it’ll cost the Broncos to bring him back, I have a hard time seeing him return because even though there were mitigating circumstances, Harris didn’t have a great year one in Vic Fangio’s scheme. The Broncos might just cut bait if they’re unwilling to compete financially and throw in with a younger corner with more long-term upside like the aforementioned Jones, or maybe even just pull the trigger on a trade with Detroit for Darius Slay.

It’ll be interesting to see how this story takes shape in the coming weeks. Undoubtedly, though, Harris’ market is heating up and the Broncos are going to have to play ball if they want to even be in the conversation for his services in 2020 and beyond.

NFL free agency begins on March 18 with the legal tampering window opening two days prior. There’s nothing to preclude the Broncos from negotiating with Harris’ camp now. In fact, GM John Elway would be best served to do whatever he can to prevent Harris from hitting the open market, if he wants to keep him in Denver. Armed with $70 million in cap space, Elway can afford to splurge a little if he believes Harris still has a few miles left in the tank.

Late for Work 2/21: Emmanuel Sanders Would Be a ‘Fun Fit’ for Ravens

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders runs the football during an NFL divisional playoff game.

Emmanuel Sanders Would Be a ‘Fun Fit’ for Ravens

Would Emmanuel Sanders look good in purple?

There’s been a lot of talk this offseason about the Ravens possibly pursuing a veteran free-agent wide receiver to give Lamar Jackson another target, and NFL.com’s Marc Sessler believes Sanders would be a fun fit for Baltimore.

“The Ravens are bound to chase pass-rushing help after struggling all year to badger the quarterback. I’m matching Baltimore with Sanders, though, pairing the underrated, rugged wideout with second-year burner Marquise Brown inside an otherwise-lacking wideout corps that saw Willie Snead finish second among the group with just 31 grabs,” Sessler wrote.

After suffering a torn Achilles late in the 2018 season, Sanders bounced back in 2019 to record 66 catches for 869 yards and five touchdowns. Sanders, who will turn 33 next month, gave the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers’ offense a boost after being traded midseason from the Denver Broncos.

Pro Football Focus ranked Sanders as the 27th-best free agent overall and the No. 4 wide receiver in this class, behind Amari Cooper, A.J. Green, and Robby Anderson. PFF projected Sanders to receive a three-year, $30 million contract ($23 million guaranteed).

“Returning from a significant injury, Sanders has been a better player late in his career than he was at the start of it,” PFF’s Sam Monson and Steve Palazzolo wrote. “He has transformed the 49ers’ passing attack since arriving and is one of the savviest route runners in the league.

“In addition to all of that route-running skill, Sanders had just one drop this past season and has some of the best hands in the game. Age will scare teams off, and he’s certainly not a long-term option, but the veteran wideout has recently proven that he can completely change an offense in need of receiving help.”

ESPN’s Bill Barnwell also linked Sanders to the Ravens. In one of his scenarios for how the “offseason dominoes” could fall, he had Baltimore signing Sanders for $1 one year, $9 million.

“The Ravens have built their passing offense around the speed of guys like Marquise Brown and Miles Boykin, but Sanders would give them another option as an intermediate receiver who can still get upfield and make big plays,” Barnwell wrote. “He’s also a good blocker, which is essential when a team runs as much as the Ravens plan on running in 2020.”

Jackson’s Jersey, Helmet Headed to Hall of Fame

As historic and awe-inspiring as Jackson’s 2019 season was, it’s a bit premature to fit him for a gold jacket. However, his jersey is headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame – again.

A jersey and helmet worn by Jackson will be displayed in Canton, Ohio, later this month to commemorate his MVP season.

In October, the jersey and cleats Jackson wore in the Ravens’ 49-13 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10 was displayed in Canton. In that game, Jackson became just the second player in league history to post a perfect quarterback rating twice in the same season.

He also broke the internet – and a Cincinnati defender’s ankles – that day with his dazzling spin move on a 47-yard touchdown run.

So for those keeping score, that’s two jerseys in the Pro Football Hall of Fame for Jackson after just two seasons. Say it with me: Not bad for a running back.

John Harbaugh Will Miss Combine After Knee Surgery

Head Coach John Harbaugh has popped up on the injury report.

As first reported by ESPN’s Jamison Hensley, Harbaugh underwent knee replacement surgery two weeks ago and will sit out the NFL Scouting Combine next week in Indianapolis. It will mark the first time Harbaugh, the 2019 Coach of the Year, has missed the Combine.

Harbaugh’s recovery has been going well, Hensley wrote.

While Harbaugh has been ruled out for the combine, he will not be inactive. Harbaugh will conduct team business at the Ravens’ facility and is expected to attend the NFL Annual League Meetings in Palm Beach, Fla., in late March, according to The Baltimore Sun’s Jonas Shaffer.

Ronnie Stanley Named NFL’s Top Pass Blocker

Ronnie Stanley made his first All-Pro and Pro Bowl teams this past season, and now the Ravens offensive tackle has been named PFF’s Pass Blocker of the Year.

“Stanley led all at his position with 300 or more pass-blocking snaps in PFF pass-blocking efficiency (99.3),” PFF wrote. “He allowed just 10 total pressures across his 515 pass-blocking snaps (includes postseason) in 2019.

Stanley, the sixth-overall selection in the 2016 draft, was vital in protecting Jackson’s blind side.

“It is entirely possible for a player to have a very good season protecting the edge simply because he never went up against anybody of consequence, but this isn’t the case for Stanley,” PFF’s Monson wrote in December. “He has actually faced a pretty solid slate of rushers, and with only one exception, he has held each one to their lowest pressure total of the season. There’s very little argument to be made that Stanley’s historic season is simply a product of the players he has faced.”

In addition to thriving in pass-blocking, Stanley also recorded the lowest percentage of negatively graded run-blocking snaps in 2019.

Stanley’s teammate, eight-time Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda, also graded high in pass-blocking efficiency (99.0), leading all qualifiers at his position. Moreover, Ravens center Patrick Mekari and Yanda recorded the two lowest negative run-block percentages among interior offensive linemen.

Quick Hits

  • The Ravens’ selection of fullback Kyle Juszczyk in the fourth round (130th overall) in 2013 was No. 3 on NFL.com’s Jeremy Bergman’s list of the top 10 compensatory picks from the past 10 drafts.

The Super Bowls Lucky White Uniforms

About nine years ago I stumbled upon something odd… the team that wore white kept winning the Super Bowl every year. I immediately wrote a story calling the Green Bay Packers fools for opting to wear their home green jerseys, didn’t they know there was some dark jersey curse???

Of course, as curse law goes, the Packers won that year ending the streak, thus making me the fool.

So what happened next? Well, a curse is a curse, after all. Since that game, there have been eight Super Bowls, and in those eight Super Bowls, the team wearing white has won SEVEN times.

The dark uniform curse dates back to Super Bowl XXXIX when the New England Patriots wearing white beat the Philadelphia Eagles in that sorta-greenish uniform they wear, with the Pats winning it that year it ended a three-game losing streak for the teams wearing white.

The next year, in Super Bowl XL the Steelers had the first choice and instead of wearing their darks they chose white, as a wildcard team they had worn it already all throughout the AFC playoffs and it seemed to have brought them luck. The Seahawks were forced to wear blue, green, grey, teal… “Seahawk Blue”. Anyways, the Steelers won.

In Super Bowl XLI the Colts, as the “road” team won their first Super Bowl since their days in Baltimore, they were wearing white against Chicago in blue.

Super Bowl XLII saw the Pats who started the white uniform streak return to the big game. For some silly reason they chose to wear blue, and their dreams of an undefeated season were history, the New York Giants won it in white.

At Super Bowl XLIII the Arizona Cardinals of all teams made it to the championship. They were just happy to be there so they chose red, and yes, they lost to the Steelers who again won in white.

Super Bowl XLIV brought New Orleans their first and only Super Bowl championship, the Colts chose blue, the Colts chose a loss. New Orleans wins in white bringing the streak to six in a row.

Here’s where I started to muck things up, Super Bowl XLV was held just a few days after I launched the news section of this site. Looking to drop a bombshell, I revealed the white jersey pattern. Now everyone talks about it every year. I’m sorry. Anyways, Green Bay chose green, Pittsburgh was in their whites (which had worked for them twice already during this run) and naturally, the Packers won. Good job everyone.

At Super Bowl XLVI the Giants and Patriots were again facing each other, again the Pats chose blue, again the Pats lost. Giants win!

For Super Bowl XLVII the San Francisco 49ers opted to go with their home reds… what could go wrong? Well, they lost of course. Baltimore wins it in white.

The Denver Broncos chose orange at Super Bowl XLVIII which was doubly bad, the Broncos had already been smoked while wearing orange at the Super Bowl three times prior. You’ll never guess what happened, they got smoked. Seattle wins their first Super Bowl, and they did it wearing white.

By this point you’d think teams would learn, but at Super Bowl XLIX the Seattle Seahawks returned and with the jersey choice they picked… blue! And they lost. New England wins their first Super Bowl in ten years ending a two game losing streak (during which they wore blue both times)

So now’s when teams started to get wise to this whole thing. At Super Bowl 50 the Denver Broncos returned, the coverage of the white uniform curse was getting annoying, not to mention their own orange jersey problems. Denver chose to wear white forcing the Carolina Panthers to wear black. Denver won. Strategy folks.

But at Super Bowl LI the Atlanta Falcons were just so surprised they were at the game they completely forgot about the streak, they chose red against the Patriots white and well, you all know what happens next. New England wins, that’s six in a row for white uniforms and a record of 12-1 over the last thirteen years.

New England returned in Super Bowl LII and with the first option of choosing the uniform colours, they wisely went with what worked, they chose white forcing the Eagles to wear green. It was in this game we discovered the Super Bowl white uniform weakness – green. Philadelphia won ending the streak and this would be the last time a team would choose to wear white at a Super Bowl. The fools.

Super Bowl LIII last year brought the Patriots back but the Los Angeles Rams had the choice of uniform and picked their retro blues. It sure looked pretty but it didn’t help them much, they managed only a field goal and lost.

From Super Bowl XXXIX through Super Bowl LIII, a span of 15 games, white uniforms had an incredible record of 13-2, those only two losses against teams wearing green. You might be thinking “big deal, teams go 13-2 all the time in the NFL”, yes, sure, fine, but do those teams go 13-2 when they’re exclusively playing that season’s conference champion? Of course not, that would be crazy! I mean, what kind of schedule would that be?

Take a look, here’s all fifteen games, who wore what, and the scores of each (the jersey numbers, yes, clever)

This year the Kansas City Chiefs chose to wear red, the 49ers are in white. There’s no green jersey this year. If the Chiefs win, it might be the end of this silly story we like to trot out every year… but if they don’t I get to CTRL+C, CTRL+V this baby for Super Bowl LV. Content!

  7. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers
  8. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys
  9. Saquon Barkley, New York Giants
  10. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh Steelers

These numbers are based on sales of officially licensed NFL merchandise from March 1st through November 30th of 2019.

49ers want to wear all-white throwback uniform in Super Bowl, NFL reportedly hasn’t allowed it yet

For as long as we care about football and NFL history, a team’s Super Bowl highlights will be played. It has been 50 years and we still remember clips of Max McGee and Joe Namath in Super Bowls before they were officially called Super Bowls.

So uniform choices for a Super Bowl matter. Like a high-school yearbook photo, this look will live forever. And the San Francisco 49ers are pushing for what they feel is their best look for Super Bowl LIV against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The only problem is the NFL hasn’t approved it, yet.

49ers prefer throwback uniforms for Super Bowl

The 49ers will make a push for their all-white throwback jerseys in Super Bowl LIV, according to David Lombardi of The Athletic.

The 49ers wore them in the 1994 season, the NFL’s 75th anniversary season in which each team wore throwbacks on certain weeks. San Francisco continued to wear the throwbacks that season when it got on a winning streak and wore the throwbacks in a Super Bowl win that season.

The 49ers want to go with that kit against the Chiefs but Lombardi reported “the NFL currently won’t allow it,” according to 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman. The 49ers got an exemption to wear the throwbacks in a Week 17 game against the Seahawks, and they’re sharp:

Richard Sherman of the San Francisco 49ers in the team's all-white throwback jerseys.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and his team want to wear the all-white throwbacks in Super Bowl LIV.

The NFL can get weird about teams and which uniforms they wear, but hopefully the league lets San Francisco wear the uniforms it wants.

49ers will likely wear white

The Chiefs are the designated home team in Super Bowl LIV, so they’ll get first choice of uniform. It seems obvious they’d wear their normal red uniform, leaving the 49ers to wear white.

When the 49ers wore their throwbacks in the Super Bowl win over the Chargers at the end of the 1994 season, they wore red. That’s the last time the 49ers won a Super Bowl. It’s still a classic look, though so is the 49ers’ normal road uniform.

There’s a lot to talk about in the two weeks before Super Bowl LIV, and the 49ers’ uniforms might be one of those topics.
