Nike Releases New Green Bay Packers 2012 Uniforms
Nike and the NFL have teamed up to create new home, away and alternate jerseys for all of the 32 NFL teams. Above is a look at the first Green Bay Packers’ jersey that has been released. You can see the rest of the NFL jerseys here.
Clearly Nike was afraid to change one of the most beloved and long standing jerseys in the NFL, as there aren’t many obvious changes to this version of the jersey. The colors have all remained generally the same on the pants and jersey, with only the shoes gaining a slight makeover.
As you can see, the new Nike jerseys are supposed to make the players in the NFL faster. It will be interesting to see come game time whether or not the players actually appear faster. All I know is that if Nike was able to make B.J. Raji look like Usain Bolt, I’ll be extremely impressed.
Considering the changes made to some of the teams like the Seattle Seahawks, Nike made the correct decision by keeping the majority of Green Bay’s new jersey the same.
