Marquise Brown has finally put on the Arizona Cardinals’ gameday uniform for the first time.
For the Arizona Cardinals’ newest addition, Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, getting back to wearing red once more has to feel good. After wearing the purple of the Baltimore Ravens for his first three seasons in the NFL, he’s now back with Kyler Murray (his college quarterback) in the color that made them a dynamic duo.
The Cardinals took some promotional photos one day before their mandatory minicamp yesterday. Brown will wear number two for the Cardinals, a number that doesn’t have a lot of history.
The most notable players who’ve worn the number two jersey are (via Pro Football Reference):
- A few Kickers/Punters: Andy Lee, Drew Butler, Mike Nugent
- Chase Edmonds in 2021
- Charley Trippi from 1952-1955 (he changed numbers towards the end of his Cardinals’ career)
Arizona Cardinals fans are still calling for new uniforms
Even with how good the “2” looks on Brown, the Twitter replies are still chastising the Arizona Cardinals’ refusal to update their uniforms. Just go check out the comments on the Tweet.
We’re at that point again in every Arizona Cardinals offseason that the uniform topic surfaces once again.
How can either side be blamed? The fans have voiced their displeasure (myself included) about how the Cardinals have needed a uniform change. It’s long overdue, and after seeing multiple teams change their uniforms (insert your favorite change here), it’s got to be done soon.
On the other hand, this is the uniform that has brought the Cardinals the most successful period in team history. That’s a pretty tough argument to beat, but a team should listen to its fans. I mean, come on, the Falcons got their throwback red helmets for this year.
That’s the level of classiness and sharpness the Cardinals should be aiming for. There’s also this potential redesign by king of potential Cardinals uniform designs:
Marquise Brown should be able to make a lot of good memories in his new jersey and would look even better in a new uniform. And for the love of football, please no more grey facemasks.
