The NFL will be releasing their new uniforms on April 3, 2012. Speculation on the new look has been rampant, with mocks of the potential new look bouncing around Facebook and Twitter for the last year. The speculation has grown men acting like 17-year-old girls that are giddy over picking out their prom dresses.
Some new images have emerged, though, and it may have been the NFL Network that gave some of them credence.
A draft preview piece flashed a Seahawks logo, however briefly, that caught the attention of some ardent fans. They noticed the base color was no longer the light Seahawk blue, but more of a silver. A closer look at the logo on the gloves Nike unveiled at the Pro Bowl added credibility, as there is clearly some silver present.
There is another version of the logo that has also surfaced. It has more of a grey base than silver, and the dark blue has been replaced with the blue closer to the primary color used pre-2002. This version seems too far removed from the color in the Pro Bowl gloves to carry merit. It also lacks the white border that has accompanied the logo and is also present on the gloves.
The good news is fans won't have to wait much longer. The NFL will unveil the uniforms on Tuesday and they will be available for sale by draft weekend.
Should this be the actual jersey, fans will likely be quite receptive. Wide receiver Mike Williams certainly thinks so, stating on Twitter: "The uniforms are icccccee cold tho 12s.. Esp the alternates...id put the alternates up against ANY uniform in ANY league.."
The promise is there. Now fans will have just a few more days of anticipation.
