Broncos expected to wear alternate or throwback helmet in 2023

Last year, the NFL had 13 teams wear alternate or throwback helmets during the 2022 season. The Denver Broncos were not among them (the Color Rush helmet doesn’t count because it’s just a sticker change on the existing helmet).

True alternate (or throwback) helmets are expected to be on the way for the Broncos in time for the 2023 season, according to Andrew Lind of

Wearing an alternate helmet this fall might be a step toward revealing fully revised uniforms in 2024. Denver has teased that new uniforms are being worked on, and fans and graphic designers have been dreaming up potential uniforms for the club’s eventual new look.

The Detroit Lions will also debut alternate helmets in 2023 before revealing overhauled uniforms in 2024, according to the Detroit Free Press. It’s possible that the Broncos could be following a similar timeline.

Broncos Wire put together some mockups of alternate white and orange helmets last year, but what fans probably really want to see is a baby blue helmet with the old “D” logo. Denver quarterback Russell Wilson has also made it clear that he’s a big fan of the team’s throwback look.

Wearing a true throwback light blue helmet would allow the Broncos to wear a full throwback uniform that could look like this. Sign us up for that!
