Big changes unlikely for uniforms

According to a report by ProFootballTalk there won’t be dramatic uniform changes when Nike takes over from Reebok in April as the uniform supplier of the NFL.

Logos are controlled by teams and the NFL,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy told PFT by email this morning. “That will not change. Teams have to apply to league to make changes to logos and colors.

“We anticipate new uniform technology (i.e., performance-driven, lighter materials). That’s what Nike’s [Charlie] Denson was referring to in his interview in 2010 regarding changes.”

So per the report the jerseys will look the same, barring any changes that would be made in the ordinary course of changing jerseys. Of course, the shift to Nike could cause some teams to decide to make the change. The Bills however, already went through a very lengthy uniform change process with Reebok over an 18-month period leading up to the 2011 season.
