Recently unveiled by the NFL are the latest jerseys for the upcoming season. Instead of being produced for the field by Adidas, another major sporting company takes a crack at the NFL uniforms. Nike steps up under center and takes the snap to produce the new uniforms.
The new uniforms produced by Nike do not radically change the teams’ uniforms from last year’s model. Instead they take the strengths of the old uniforms, add some Nike flair and top it off with the iconic swoosh.
A few teams have a new modernized approach, such as the Chicago Bears or the New Orleans Saints. A few teams, such as the Buffalo Bills, were unable to have changes due to the five-year rule imposed by the NFL. The rule states that uniforms may be changed only once in five years.
After the NFL showed off all the brand-spanking new Nike uniforms for every team, it seemed clear who benefited the most from the changes: the Seattle Seahawks.
With a soft touch of lime green, the decision to keep navy and now gray incorporated into the patterns of the jersey is a sure-fire winner! Time to break down the Seattle Seahawks new uniforms by Nike!
