Could the Arizona Cardinals get new uniforms for 2023? Why speculation is swirling again
Could the Arizona Cardinals finally be getting new uniforms?
We'll believe it when we see it, but speculation is swirling again around the possibility that the NFL team will receive a new look for the 2023 season (like it seems to swirl around this time every year).
There are some signs, however, that have fueled speculation that this really could be the year for an updated look to the Arizona Cardinals' uniform.
Longtime Cardinals insider Mike Jurecki first reported that the Cardinals will have new jerseys this season "per source" on his Arizona Football Daily Podcast earlier this month.

Fox 10 Phoenix reported that Cardinals jerseys are discounted online.
Others reported that the Cardinals team shop was going to be closed for several days this week.
Unlike previous NFL draft hats, a new one prominently features "Cardinals" written in yellow.
That yellow color also showed up at the NFL team meetings on Cardinals coach Jonathan Gannon's name.

The Cardinals haven't unveiled a new primary look since 2005 and fans have been clamoring for a change for years.
Last year, Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill told Arizona Sports 98.7 FM that new uniforms for his team were "on the radar."
“We look at all these things," Bidwill said when asked on The Bickley and Marotta Show about getting new uniforms for the Cardinals. "You probably know, these things, there’s a timeline for them. It takes time. It's something among the array of things we look at around the team, it’s on the radar screen, so, appreciate the question.
He continued: "We’re going to honor tradition at the same time. Again, It’s part of the array of things we look at. It’s on the radar screen."
When pressed for a timeline for the Cardinals getting new uniforms, Bidwill replied: "It's on the radar screen. These things take time, guys."
Could it finally be time for the Cardinals to get new uniforms?
