CEO Cal McNair hints at new look for Texans
During a Reddit AMA in September, Texans CEO Cal McNair hinted at the organization offering fans a jersey swap so they can rock jerseys of newer players.
McNair also hinted at the Texans having a new look in the future. When asked about changing the design of the uniforms, McNair said that option was on the table.
"We have already engaged the NFL to better understand the process to formally start a fan research study...we won't be afraid to evolve," McNair said.
In an era where teams change uniforms often, the Texans have stayed true since joining the NFL in 2002. The "Deep Steel Blue" and "Liberty White" uniforms mostly kept the same look since inception, with "Battle Red" jerseys being unveiled in 2003.
Outside of their "Color Rush" uniforms, many changes haven't been made.
The Texans did unveil new alternate Battle Red helmets earlier this year to match the jerseys. The new look will be on display Nov. 3 at NRG Stadium as the Texans face the Philadelphia Eagles.
