NFL rumors: St. Louis Rams could get new uniforms in next five years

The St. Louis Rams colors have been either yellow and blue or navy and gold since the 1972 season when the team abandoned their previous blue and white scheme, but it looks like there could be some new uniforms in the works for the team that will pay tribute to their history.

Rams executive vice president and chief operating officer Kevin Demoff was answering questions from fans on Wednesday night after the NFL schedule release, where he revealed that the popular blue and white look could soon return.

Demoff wasn’t done at hinting of the throwback uniform revival. He also made it clear that there was a chance the team could be ditching their darker color scheme to return to the royal blue and yellow look that has been appreciated by the fan base. The Rams have not worn the blue and yellow uniforms since Super Bowl XXXIV in 2000 when Kurt Warner led the team to a Lombardi Trophy thanks in part to a clutch tackle from Rams linebacker Mike Jones, who wrapped up Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kevin Dyson at the one-yard line at the end of the game.

Demoff said that the uniform update could come within the next five years during his Twitter Q&A session, but it looks like the team is already discussing the possibility and it could come even sooner.

I think at some time in the next five years, you’ll see a complete uniform — throwback and current uniform,” Demoff said, via the St. Louis Post Dispatch. “I’d be surprised if we didn’t have it.”
