The Carolina Panthers will more than likely have a fresh face at quarterback next season, and now they’ll have a fresh new look for their fans to appreciate.
Carolina unveiled new alternate uniforms on Tuesday, an all-black look with black alternate helmets to match.
“Sometimes guys tap into an alter ego depending on what they’re wearing,” Panthers defensive end Brian Burns said, according to Panthers.com “Whenever a team wears all black, or black accessories, it just brings out that dog in them, the evil side.

“When I saw this, I was like, ‘This will be tough.’ Especially on defense, they call us the dark side anyway, so it brings it all together.”
The new all-black look will be debuted on “Thursday Night Football” against the Atlanta Falcons in November. The NFL will allow teams to wear alternate uniforms during the 2022 NFL season, according to NFL.com.

“I was excited. We needed a little splash of swag on the field,” Burns said.
“It’s going to be hype. It’s time to get with it.”
BAKER MAYFIELD’S PASSION ‘NOT NECESSARILY A DETRIMENT,’ QB’S FORMER HEAD COACH SAYS
Carolina is coming off of a disappointing year with Sam Darnold in his first year under center, finishing the season 5-12 and in last place in the NFC South.
In early July, Carolina made the move to bolster their quarterback room, trading a conditional 2024 fifth-round pick for Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Mayfield, who was drafted two spots ahead of Darnold in the 2018 NFL Draft, had moderate success in Cleveland, leading the Browns to the organization’s first playoff victory since 1994. But Cleveland’s decision to trade for quarterback Deshaun Watson in March signaled the end of Mayfield’s time in a Browns uniform.
Carolina also drafted quarterback Matt Corral out of Ole Miss in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft and, according to reports, is not planning on trading Darnold.
