Redskins want to opt out of Color Rush uniforms for one simple reason

BY Nunzio Ingrassia • March 23, 2017

The NFL’s Color Rush jerseys have been a love-it-or-hate-it concept since they became mandatory last season.

There were obvious hits …

And misses …

But it looks like one team doesn’t want any part of the new craze. Among the 2017 NFL rules proposals announced Thursday, the Washington Redskins want to allow teams to opt out of the Color Rush uniforms and offered this two-word reason – garish uniforms.


Ironically, the Redskins – along with the Colts, Lions and Browns – didn’t have to wear the jerseys last season because their only Thursday game was on Thanksgiving afternoon, allowing them to sidestep the rule that requires teams to wear Color Rush uniforms during Thursday night games.

Judging by the look of the Redskins version, we see why they want no part of the concept.
