Jaguars black uniform will debut against the Bears

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

The Jacksonville Jaguars will wear their teal tops for the final time on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals and will debut their black jerseys against the Chicago Bears the following week.

Sunday's matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals will be the final time the Jaguars wear teal tops as their primary jersey color. On October 7 against the Chicago Bears, the Jacksonville Jaguars will debut their new primary black uniform and the teal top will move to an alternate uniform combination.

This has been a long time coming, as Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a radio interview months ago that the team was going to move to black for their primary jersey color with teal accents, giving the franchise an entirely new look.

"As a nod of tribute to Fred and all of the players who have worn the Jaguars' teal uniform in the past, this Sunday on Jaguars Alumni Weekend we will wear teal for the last time as our primary home jersey," Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a press release. "After this Sunday's game, we will wear black as our primary jersey and teal will be reserved for special occasions as our alternate jersey. Teal will continue to be a part of our uniform and our logo, but on the field our identity will grow in black jerseys."

While the Jaguars will now wear black tops as their primary jersey, the team is still expected to get completely brand new and re-designed Nike jerseys for the 2013 season, which will likely be debuted to the public in April of next year.

So, rest in peace teal. The 1990's sure loved you and we will miss you. Kinda.
