Nike reveals new NFL uniforms

After years of being branded by Reebok, the NFL has turned to Nike to dress its players on Thursdays, Sundays and Mondays.

The only team that made significant changes to its uniforms were the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks used the unveiling as an oppotunity to continue its rebranding.

An early indication from players who were at the unveiling show that Nike hit the mark instead of missed.
