United back from the Seahawks? Not in 2022 season, says Chuck Arnold

The Seattle Seahawks are one of the few teams that haven’t worn a retro uniform for the past two decades, and that won’t change this season.

Team President Chuck Arnold broke the bad news to all nostalgic fans (or fans of the original uniforms) in an interview with Dave ‘Softy’ Mahler on Sports Radio KJR.

If you remember last offseason, the NFL lifted the “one helmet rule” that paved the way for the reuse of old sons from Seattle (among other teams) starting in the 2022-23 season. Pro Football Talk explained why the one helmet rule was even a thing back then:

Player safety was the main reason the NFL had previously asked teams to stop using alternate helmets: teams wanted every player to have a helmet that fit them properly and not change it during the season. . But the new policy addresses those concerns by requiring teams to have a new set of alternate helmets for each player on the roster, to ensure that all alternate helmets are the same brand, model and size. as the player’s primary helmet, and requiring players to gear up for their primary and alternate helmets at the same time at training camp.

So while the Seahawks can wear old-school uniforms, that won’t happen until at least 2023. You’ll have to settle for Action Green as your alternate uniform of choice for another season.

On the plus side, there is good news for those of you who regularly attend games at Lumen Field!
