The Green Bay Packers will debut their new alternate uniform against the Washington Football Team in Week 7 at Lambeau Field.
Some uniforms we can instantly characterize as awesome, fine, or disgusting. However, in this case, the Packers’ new alternate wear is in wait-and-see mode. The no-logo helmet is bothersome, and green from top to bottom is risky for chunky players.
Take a look:

The Packers say they can wear the uniform up to three times per year over five years. Though they plan to wear the look only once in 2021. Meaning, Green Bay is going to bring the uniform along slowly.
The new addition likely signals a goodbye to the Packers’ blue and gold alternate uniform. At least for now.
On second thought, I don’t mind the green pants. At least not on Aaron Rodgers — for one game before he bolts to Denver next year…
