When the first ever Pro Bowl draft was held on Tuesday, Jan. 21, little was known about the new uniforms the players would be wearing. The only inkling of a sample that most fans had seen up to that point was this rendered image from Nike:

Now that Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders have selected their respective teams, Nike was finally able to produce the necessary uniforms with appropriate nameplates and numbers. It didn't take long for teams and players to start snapping pictures of their new unis.

Some players are having fun while sporting their new uniforms. St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn and punter John Hekker are all smiles with Jerry Rice:
