The NFL is launching NFL PREM1ERE, the league's first jersey patch program that recognizes and celebrates each rookie's first NFL game.
All rookies on a 53-man roster at the start of the 2023 NFL season will wear an NFL PREM1ERE patch on their jersey during Week 1. Any rookies who make their debut after Week 1 will wear the patch during their first NFL game. The rookies will receive the game-worn jerseys to honor their first regular-season game.
“An NFL rookie's first game marks an unforgettable occasion in his football experience and we are excited to preserve this moment and honor this milestone," said Troy Vincent, Executive Vice President of Football Operations.
