The Denver Broncos on Monday released a new jersey collection, marking the first major uniform redesign for the franchise since 1997.

Why it matters: It's a flashy change for a team eager to get back into fans' good graces after a losing season that resulted in former quarterback Russell Wilson's departure.

The big picture: The jersey sleeves now include a mountain peak, more block-style numbers, and three perforated triangles under the sleeve β€” a reference to thin air at elevation and the state's mountains.

  • The team is dubbing the jersey series the "Mile High Collection," a nod to Denver's nickname.
  • The team's helmet will feature a "metallic satin" texture, and will be colored navy for home and away games and white as an alternate option. They display an orange "5280" on the front helmet bumper.
  • The Broncos' primary colors will remain sunset orange for home games, summit white for away games, and midnight navy for an alternate, according to a release from the team.

By the numbers: The designs were picked with feedback from more than 10,000 fans, who gave their opinions in a survey process that started two years ago, according to the team.

The intrigue: The team this season will sport a bright orange "throwback" uniform, including a helmet with the former "D" logo made popular during the Orange Crush era of the 1970s and 1980s.

What's next: The team β€” which is in the market for a quarterback β€” is set to participate in the 2024 NFL Draft starting Thursday.

  • The Broncos are reportedly trading a late-round draft pick for New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson.
  • The new uniforms are now available for purchase.
