Over the weekend, the Chargers shot all of their promos that they’ll plan to use throughout this season. For a lot of the players, it was the first time any of them had tried on the new uniforms and everyone looked absolutely CLEAN.
This weekend was also the first time fans were able to see the rookies in the new uniforms. No more edited jersey swaps here. This is the real deal.
Justin Herbert is looking every bit of his listed 6’6 and Murray is intimidating as ever in that fan-favorite #56.
As for the rest of the rookies, the first thing that stands out here is the pose they picked out for Joshua Kelley. Of course they wanted to emphasize the fact he’s got one of the most-infectious smiles you’ve ever seen.
The rest of the rookies are looking great, too. The #12 on Joe Reed is refreshing to see along with Alohi Gilman’s #32. Both numbers, at least to me, are aesthetically pleasing. K.J. Hill in #84 is fine, it’s a solid number that has been worn by some greats, but I prefer our receivers to be in the teens instead of the 80s.
One of my favorite videos tweeted out by the Chargers’ account was this one of Justin Jones. How absolutely lean does he look? For a guy floating around 300 pounds at 6’3, he looks incredible. Let’s hope that hard work translates to the field this season!
We also finally got a look at QB1:
So fresh. So icy. Just when you can’t imagine the uniforms looking any better, we see them on the players and yes, they’re that much more spectacular.
