Here’s what the Seahawks press release said about the announcement:

Seahawks fans have long been clamoring for their team to add throwback uniforms to the mix, and on Sunday, those in attendance at Lumen Field were the first to find out that the wait is almost over.

In a brief video shown inside Lumen Field during the first quarter Sunday’s game against the Raiders, the Seahawks teased the return of 1990s-era throwback uniforms that will be used in 2023 as part of the NFL’s classic uniform program.

Seattle has worn its current uniform style since the 2012 season, and the Hawks last wore uniforms with the classic blue, green and silver colors used in these 1990s throwbacks in 2001. The style of these throwbacks had been used from the team’s inaugural season in 1976 until the switch to a darker blue color and neon green secondary color in 2002.

The arrival of throwback uniforms in Seattle was likely delayed by a previous NFL rule that a team could only use one helmet style per year. Per ESPN, the NFL banned teams from using a second helmet in 2013 due to concerns that a player wearing more than one helmet per year would be unsafe. The league approved rule changes in 2021 that allowed for alternate helmets with throwback uniforms.
