Nike Pro Combat NFL Uniforms: What the League's Uniforms Could Look Like in 2012

0 of 31

    In 2012 Nike will replace Reebok as the provider for NFL jerseys. Nike is the main provider and has designed jerseys for several college football teams, including Oregon. They had their Nike Pro Combat campaign in 2009 where they released jerseys for almost every college football team, and now Nike is coming to the NFL where they will be responsible for new designs for every team. 

    The Nike style is often debated, but it will indeed mark a whole new era in the timeline for NFL jerseys.

    Previews of the jerseys have been circulating the Internet recently. Though these are fake jerseys, they are still fun to imagine as the real deal. 

Miami Dolphins

1 of 31

    This design keeps the flamboyant colors that Miami is often associated with, but at the same time is able to make it somewhat fearsome.

New England Patriots

2 of 31

    A nice job of incorporating the patriotic theme into the jersey. The American flag on the sides is an insane touch that makes this jersey pop out.

New York Jets

3 of 31

    It's amazing how adding black to a jersey can make it so much more intimidating.

Denver Broncos

4 of 31

    Using their throwback logo, this Broncos uniform changes things up tremendously.

    Tim Tebow will rep it well.

Kansas City Chiefs

5 of 31

    Not much to do to make the McDonald's-like color scheme of the Chiefs look appealing, but this design does indeed make it somewhat better. The choice of a more vibrant yellow adds a little more zing.

Oakland Raiders

6 of 31

    The color scheme chosen by Al Davis is always one which provokes fear. With this new design it looks even more scary than it does today.

San Diego Chargers

7 of 31

    Like the Chiefs, this design uses a more vibrant yellow, allowing for a much more amazing design.

Baltimore Ravens

8 of 31

    The black shoulders combined with the purple makes this one of the most intimidating jerseys of the potential release.

Cincinnati Bengals

9 of 31

    Dang. The tiger design is absolutely, positively, undeniably incredible.

Cleveland Browns

10 of 31

    Poor Cleveland Browns can't catch a break anywhere.

Pittsburgh Steelers

11 of 31

    What's impressive about this design is how the red and blue from the old helmet is incorporated into the sleeve.

Houston Texans

12 of 31

    With such an extravagant jersey today, there is surprisingly nothing too impressive about this one.

Indianpolis Colts

13 of 31

    Not too much of a change for the Colts' uniform. Hopefully their record will have a bigger change.

Jacksonville Jaguars

14 of 31

    I don't know how I feel about the leopard design. 

Tennessee Titans

15 of 31

    In my opinion, the Titans currently have one of the worst uniforms in the NFL, but this new design does everything to incredibly upgrade the Titans' uniform. 

Dallas Cowboys

16 of 31

    Its amazing just how turning the white into dark grey can make a uniform look so much better.

New York Giants

17 of 31

    The additions of the black and red add to a pretty boring design.

Philadelphia Eagles

18 of 31

    Similar to the feathers on the Oregon Ducks' uniform, the addition of the Eagle feathers on the shoulder makes this jersey look unbelievable.

Washington Redskins

19 of 31

    That helmet is such an increase from the current one. The additions of feathers on uniforms make them seem so much more realistic.

Chicago Bears

20 of 31

    The blue and black background makes the orange pop out, adding a little more fire than what we see today.

Minnesota Vikings

21 of 31

    I am simply loving the bright yellows that are being used.

    Also look at the horns on the sleeves.

New Orleans Saints

22 of 31

    Similar look, but the addition of the gold on the shoulders makes this design even more amazing.

San Francisco 49ers

23 of 31

    Similar look, still impressive.

Atlanta Falcons

24 of 31

    Again, the darkness adds intimidation.

Carolina Panthers

25 of 31

    Personally, I like the current ones better, but these are still pretty amazing.

St. Louis Rams

26 of 31

    Not extremely different, but the uniform still keeps the intimidation factor.

    Now, if only the Rams were actually intimidating...

Seattle Seahawks

27 of 31

    Loving the neon green as the secondary color. I hope there will be an even cooler alternate jersey with the neon green as the base.

Buffalo Bills

28 of 31

    Very similar—nothing much to say.

Arizona Cardinals

29 of 31

    This one can go either way; a handful of people will love this, while others will vomit from it.

Detroit Lions

30 of 31

    I would think Nike would try to incorporate the mane of a lion into this design somehow—guess not.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

31 of 31

    I love the use of the throwback logo; a good look for Tampa.
