With plenty of hype surrounding Nike’s unveiling of its new NFL uniforms on Tuesday, Ravens fans expecting major changes were only left disappointed.
The only noticeable difference in Baltimore’s uniform is a different collar, which is standard across the league and Nike explains in greater detail than I care to rehash in this space. The Seattle Seahawks were the only team to trumpet significant changes to their uniforms, with a look that vaguely reminds you of the trendsetting Oregon Ducks at the collegiate level.
Performance changes have been made to all 32 teams’ uniforms, focusing on how the jerseys and pants feel and fit to players.
For the many fans who flocked to Twitter at 11:00 a.m. and waited nearly an hour for the unveiling that took place in New York City, the event felt all too much like an episode of Access Hollywood.
Lots of waiting and exciting promises that ultimately resulted in a return of little substance.
