The Dallas Cowboys uniforms are as classic as the New York Yankees’ pinstripes. The team has made no major changes to them since 1964 when the team opted for a simpler uniform and never looked back. Since then, just like the Star, the Cowboys’ uniforms have been an icon in the world of football. As we head into the 2020 season, the uniforms might be carrying something unique, though.
As you may very well know, the Dallas Cowboys were established in 1960, which means the team will be celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. What better way of honoring the team’s history than with a patch on the team’s jerseys?
That seems to be the plan, at least judging by a picture that’s going viral on Cowboys Twitter. The patch depicts the image the team has been promoting the anniversary with, which is the white helmet with the original Star on it and the “Est. 1960” legend below it.

While this has not been confirmed by any reporter or legit source yet, things sure add up. Cornerback Trevon Diggs is the player portrayed in the picture causing the rumors. Wearing #31 (Yikes, are you over Byron Jones already?), the Cowboys’ 2020 second-round pick uploaded a different picture to his Instagram stories in which he’s in a photo shoot.
I believe in coincides, but yeah, this looks like the real thing.

The 2020 offseason has seen many NFL teams change uniforms. To be specific, seven teams will be rocking new looks when the season kicks off. Although the Cowboys will not be changing their uniforms, them wearing a patch will be a fun twist.
It would’ve been the perfect season to bring back the throwback uniforms, but the NFL rules still don’t allow teams to use multiple helmets. Earlier this year rumors emerged on the league getting rid of the rule in the next couple of years.
In the meantime, the Cowboys seemingly will be wearing a patch to celebrate the anniversary.
I’m intrigued by what else the Jones family is planning to honor the team’s rich history asides from the patches, though. With COVID-19 restrictions keeping fan attendance limited, some plans might need to be adjusted, but I’d be surprised if the Cowboys don’t find a way to give the fans a show.
Of course, Cowboys Nation will be wishing they celebrate it by bringing the sixth Lombardi Trophy to The Star in Frisco.
