The NFL offseason has been full of surprises.

This includes the announcement of unexpected player cuts, organizational changes, and several throwback jerseys and helmets.

After seeing several teams in the league release their old uniforms, the Tennessee Titans are back with their own rendition.

As highlighted on the NFL’s official Twitter page, the Titans’ jerseys will feature a powder blue color scheme with red and white.

The uniforms are a tribute to the Houston Oilers, a Houston-based team from 1960–1966.

Many fans have expressed disappointment towards the Titans, noting that the Oilers are from Houston, not Tennessee.

However, the Oilers moved to Tennessee, becoming the Titans, so this uniform is part of the team’s history.

While there was initial fan enthusiasm about the new uniforms, the Titans still have many unanswered questions ahead of the 2023 season.

His quarterback position is still uncertain, especially since they took Will Lewis in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Given his NFL experience up to this point, Ryan Tannehill is still the projected starter.

However, Lewis and Malik Willis will work tirelessly to show the team that they have the ability to overtake Tannehill as the starter.

While Tannehill has had some success on this Titans roster, he may have a short leash.

The Titans finished the 2022 season with a 7–10 record, only one year away from a 12–5 record.

If Tannehill and the rest of the team get off to a slow start, it could be a sign that Lewis or Willis will get their shot.

Whatever happens to the Titans this year, at least they have new uniforms to show off.
