The jersey will first be unveiled on the team's new Snapchat account, but it will be followed by a formal unveiling for the rest of the world that is not on Snapchat.
Matt Barrows tweeted that the long time rumor has been that the team would consider incorporating silver. Although red and white have been the primary colors for the 49ers, but they used silver way back in the day.
