Kelly green was the Eagles' main color in the 80's, and the last time they wore the once-popular color was in 2010. But now it'll be back sometime in the 2023-2024 season.

For newer generation Eagles fans, their eyes will need to adjust to the bright, almost-lime green. But even though the Birds have been sporting the new, darker midnight green, you can still see remnants of the past when you look out in the stadiums. You'll always catch a handful of  lifelong fans wearing their old kelly green jerseys from days past. That's certainly one way to spot a real tried and true Eagles fan!

According to NBC Philadelphia, Lurie had his eye on bringing kelly green back, but there was a one-color helmet rule in the way up until 2021. The rule said that teams could only have one color helmet, which was midnight green for the Eagles. Midnight green helmets with kelly green jerseys? Would have looked kind of silly. Jeffrey Laurie wanted to do it right - with kelly green jerseys and helmets. And now's the time!
