Patriots not the only team that wants to return to their old school traditions after the NFL decided to abolish the “one shell rule” that prohibited clubs from wearing more than one helmet during a season. Because these red throwbacks also required the team to wear a white Pat Patriot helmet, they were previously unable to wear them.

The “One Shell Rule” was introduced before the 2013 season and was an attempt by the league to increase player safety, as a worn helmet was considered safer to wear than a new one.

The Patriots were one of the teams pushing for the “one shell rule” to be lifted so they could bring these returns back into the rotation.

“There was a sort of understanding here that we would not be wearing silver helmets with red throwbacks, right? It will be a different alternative uniform,” said Kraft Sports+ VP of Marketing and Branding. Entertainment Ali Taul, through the team’s official website. “We wanted to stay clean in this initial comeback so we waited and continued to lobby the league to get him back. We fought for a just cause.”

The red uniform was the original thread of the Patriots from 1960 to 1993. It was at this point that the team decided to change and introduced a blue uniform with a silver Flying Elvis logo on the helmet.
