Josh Jacobs took to Twitter recently to voice his opinion on changing the Las Vegas Raiders jerseys. The starting running back is lobbying for an all-black uniform to be worn in the future as an alternate option. It's safe to say he is a big fan of a graphic designer's interpretation of the idea.

Raiders Jersey Change Rumors

The Raiders currently use an all-white uniform with silver numbers for their color rush games, but this presents an opportunity to switch that up a little bit. Plus, they wouldn't be the first team to use all-black uniforms. The Falcons donned a similar look as recently as last season due to feedback from its fans.

Jacobs added on Twitter that “before everyone start bringing up tradition, look at the last decade. It’s time we rewrite that.” He has a point given the Raiders have finished with a record over .500 just once since 2003. They could use a spark and maybe a new uniform being introduced could help.

Overall, the Raiders are one of a few NFL teams that have not changed their uniforms much at all over the last 20 years. They are famously referred to as the "silver and black", but bringing in a new alternate uniform certainly doesn't ruin tradition.

It'll be interesting to see if this idea gains any traction throughout the offseason from fans and other Raiders players. For now, Jacobs will have to just keep dreaming of the day these all-black uniforms are introduced.
