Word around the NFL is that Nike will be the new makers of team uniforms in 2012. Currently Reebok holds the contract for making the uniforms for the NFL. The image below has been floating around the Internet in the past week and on ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption they talked about it as well. Of course quoting information that you find on the “Internets” does not make it real especially since the NFL or Nike has not confirmed that the new uniforms was sketched up by Nike.
Other NFL sites at the Fansided.com Sports Network have said the images came from a forum which probably means the images are not legit. Looking at the 49ers “new” design for their uniform I hope the designs are something some blogger made up and is not being considered by Nike and the NFL. I can get on board with the helmet design but the color scheme is way off. When looking at the helmet from straight on it looks like a Redskins helmet. I am no fashion expert but the uniforms are hideous. The 49ers and the rest of the uniforms look straight out of the video game NFL Blitz. All that’s missing is the overblown heads and huge muscles.
