Patriots announce return of red throwback alternate uniforms for 2022 season

One of the great throwback uniforms in NFL history is returning in 2022, Nick Shook of reports.

The New England Patriots are reviving their red throwback uniforms, the team announced Wednesday.

New England wore the uniforms as a throwback set in the 2002 season following the team's first Super Bowl triumph in the 2001 campaign. The Patriots have since used the uniform (and period-appropriate variations of it) in the 2009-2012 seasons before the NFL's one-shell rule eliminated the club's ability to don a throwback look starting in the 2013 season.

The league's elimination of the one-shell rule has opened the door for these (and many other) throwback uniforms to return, much to the delight of aesthetically attuned fans. Pat Patriot -- always at the ready to snap the football -- is back on the side of New England's white-shelled, white-facemasked helmets.

The uniform also features a detail that has tied the franchise to its past: tri-color shoulder stripes. The Patriots first revived this detail with their Color Rush uniforms in the 2016 season before making it a permanent part of their clothing with a uniform change in the 2020 season.
