Nike took over for Reebok as the official apparel company of the NFL, meaning that they will also produce the jerseys that the teams will wear on Sunday.s It wouldn't be Nike if they didn't make some minor tweaks and changes to the jersey's aesthetics. But this isn't Oregon, so don't expect them to go nuts. According to Nike CEO Mark Potter, the differences we will see in the new NFL jerseys might not be that drastic in terms of appearance, but there will be a significant amount of changes in terms of technology.
"We've innovated at a very high level, the uniforms are lighter, they're faster, they're better fitting. So, the athletes are actually very excited about what we're going to bring to the professional game. People are wondering - What are you going to do? Are you going to get crazy with the uniforms? I think we're actually going to have some fun, but respect the tradition of these teams at the same time."
We already know that the Jaguars will move to having black as their primary color, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Buccaneers or Dolphins receive some updated duds as well.
