The New England Patriots announced the team is bringing back their old-school red uniform and helmet combo for the 2022 season, portrayed in a Back to the Future-esque way.

The Patriots wore the reds from 1994-2012 before the NFL passed a rule in 2013 as a part of the concussion awareness to improve player safety that every team must stick to only one helmet.

A memo was sent out in June 2021 by the league officially announcing the approval of a second helmet for each team, paving a way for the return of the reds.

The team was a driving factor in the league overturning the rule and fans may beg the question: when are the Bledsoe Blues coming back as well?

The Bledsoe Blues was a jersey that was worn by then-QB Drew Bledsoe that is similar to the team’s current color but was a lighter shade of blue similar to the current New York Giants’ uniforms.

The Patriots said they were not going to wear the red uniforms with silver helmets because that would simply make it a different alternate uniform.

Current quarterback Mac Jones was 14 years old the last time New England donned the red with the helmet combination.
