Did Nike Hint at Return of Red Giants Jerseys?
By Kevin Gamgort
After more than a 10-year hiatus, it appears that the New York Giants controversial red alternate jersey may be making a triumphant return.
Recently launched on Fanatics, Nike has released a red Saquon Barkley jersey available now for $79.99.
Although this may just be Nike releasing a different color style Giants jersey, it could be hinting towards the return of the red alternate jersey this upcoming season.
In 2005, the Giants debuted their red alternate jersey, which they wore for one game each season before eliminating the jerseys entirely at the end of the 2007 season. Known for their classic blue home and white away jerseys, the red jersey was received with a bevy of criticism. It was bizarre to see a team that’s nicknamed “Big Blue” wear a red jersey. To make matters worse, the team failed to win a single game while wearing the alternate jerseys from 2005-2007.
Whether this is an indication of the Giants retuning to their controversial alternate jersey or not, it’s certainly something to keep an eye on.
