Cardinals unveil new uniforms: Arizona makes it official on April 20th

After 18 seasons in their current uniforms, the Arizona Cardinals will have a new look for the 2023 season. The team plans to unveil new uniforms on April 20th. The Cardinals teased the revelation on social media on Friday night.

The Cardinals, formed in 1920, adopted red and white as their primary colors in 1937. The team’s uniform went through several changes over the following years before assuming its long-term appearance in 1960. The Cardinals essentially wore a variation of the same uniform from until 2005, when the team introduced a more modern look that was also circulating in the 2022 season.

The Cardinals had a successful run in their outgoing uniforms. In 2008, the franchise advanced to the Super Bowl for the first time, where it all but upset the favored Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII. The Cardinals made the playoffs four more times — including a trip to the NFC Championship Game in 2015 — while wearing their outgoing uniforms.

Arizona’s roster included several prominent players during this span, including future Hall of Famers Larry Fitzgerald and JJ Watt, Hall of Famer quarterback Kurt Warner, Hall of Famer running back Edgerrin James, and former Pro Bowlers Anquon Boldin, Patrick Peterson , Carson Palmer, Calais Campbell, Tyrant Mathieu, Dwight Freeney, David Johnson, Adrian Wilson and the Cardinals Current Protection Budda Baker.

However, the team has endured some difficult seasons since their title game in 2015. Arizona has only made the playoffs once this season. The Cardinals hit rock bottom last year, winning just four games, leading to the firing of head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Arizona is certainly hoping that a new coach (Jonathan Gannon) and a new look could spark a revival.

A big question is whether the Cardinals’ new jerseys will feature an overhaul of the team’s helmet, which also underwent minor changes in 2005. While the Cardinals’ face was adjusted at the rear, the helmet remained all white with a gray facemask. The Cardinals unveiled a black helmet as part of their Color Rush uniform last season. The black helmet was a big hit among Cardinals players.

“I see the red sparkles in it – I think that’s the best part,” Baker said upon first seeing the new helmet via the team’s website. “It looks black but it has a chrome red look that’s going to look really clean. Play good, look good, feel good for sure.”

Given the popularity of the black helmet, it will also be interesting to see if black becomes a focus on the Cardinals’ new uniforms. In any case, there will be a change in the desert for the 2023 season.
