New Nike NFL Uniforms And Jerseys May Not Look That Different

Nike is the new uniform provider of the NFL, which means some teams will be getting new uniforms. It's believed that the Seattle Seahawks will see fairly significant changes to their uniform design, but for most teams, the new Nike uniforms won't mean new colors.

Nike is set to unveil the new uniforms on Tuesday at 11 a.m. (ET).

But teams will be getting new uniforms -- kind of. The color scheme of most uniforms may not change but the technology behind the actual uniforms will, as Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand recently explained.

"You're not going to see a lot of visual difference," Lions president Tom Lewand recently told season ticket holders at a town hall meeting. "It'll look very much the same as the uniforms that we have right now so everybody wearing your (Ndamukong) Suh jerseys and your (Matthew) Stafford jerseys, you're safe.

"What will be different is the technology behind the uniform. You'll see a lot more of the fabrics and the lines and the makeup that you see in quite frankly a lot of major college programs. That'll be the big change for us out of the gate."

The Lions actually changed their logo in 2009 and there's an NFL rule that you can not change your logo twice in five years, which is news to me. So the Lions, even if they wanted to, couldn't make changes to their uniforms.

But other teams will. We'll find out what those changes are at 11 a.m. (ET) on Tuesday.
