Seahawks confirm “new age” look coming Tuesday

When the new Nike-manufactured NFL uniforms are unveiled on Tuesday at an event in Brooklyn, Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor will be sporting the team’s new game attire.

The team’s website confirms that the Seahawks are getting a brand-new look, their first since 2002.

Cornerback Walter Thurmond, who knows a thing or two about creative football apparel from his time at the University of Oregon, has worn the new uniform, calling it a “new age” approach.  “It’s transitioning from where we are as an organization and where the league is going,” Thurmond said.

“With Nike, it’s always going to be something different.  It’s not going to be something traditional that everyone is used to seeing.”

It’s believed that the Seahawks logo has been adjusted to return gray to the color scheme, and it has been reported that the team’s alternate jersey will be gray.

No other teams are expected to undergo significant changes to their primary uniforms.  Some teams could get new alternate jerseys.  The Steelers have hinted at a change to their current third uniform, and Rams coach Jeff Fisher has said he’d like to ditch the yellow-and-blue outfit the team wore when beating Fisher’s Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV, opting instead for the team’s blue and white combination of yesteryear.

  1. New age?

    How about the exceedingly lame Shehawks usher in a new age by turning into A WINNING TEAM?

    If they’re still gonna be a perennial example of how not to play professional football, they might as well go out there in togas and a jock, or in cheerleader uniforms. (Which is why I refer to the team as “SHEhawks.”)

    This is a complete marketing scam. I’d sooner buy cheap Made-in-Bangladesh knockoffs smuggled in from China than put another cent into that team of losers.

    Just sayin’…..

  2. Some of the prototype jerseys that I have seen are downright awesome.!.! As much as it pains me to say it. The patriot prototype jerseys are awesome…. Hope some of the teams let loose with some alternae jerseys… Then of course there are the browns jerseys, you couldn’t do anything to make those look decent. Maybe mr. Hankey as the teams mascot… Fitting

  3. Looking forward to seeing some new alternate uniforms. Because NIKE college jerseys have been pretty creative…

  4. I’m with Fisher . . . nothing would please me more than to see the Rams go back to the blue and white they wore in Los Angeles under George Allen. Classic, clean look!

  5. I wish the Vikings would go back to the simple look they had in the 70s, they just look like they’re trying too hard next to the classic uniforms in the division like the Bears and Packers.

  6. They def needed a new color scheme. Their jerseys are horrible lol worst in NFL

  7. “It’s not going to be something traditional that everyone is used to seeing.”

    Very nice……… after the MASSIVE turnover the last 2 years with no Walrus or Ruskell around and the D coming on strong!!

    Things are looking good for the Hawks moving forward.

  8. Only teams with no history will get totally new uniforms and logos like jacksonville , seahawks ,panthers , cards , teams like packers , bears , lions , are adding new crazy colors on their uniforms you can bet on that .

  9. Denver is supposed to be going back to orange for their primary jerseys this year… I’m excited to see if it’s going to be just what their alternate jerseys were for the past couple years or if there’s a new design involved too!

    Good or bad, can’t wait to see all the jerseys tomorrow!

  10. I’ve seen the new unis and they are definitely different and may take a while to get used to. It’s a bigger change than when the chargers changed theirs. Darker blue with white numbers with the lime green trim on silver/grey pants.

  11. Seahawk players are sweating out the wait. Wondering if they’ll have to put up with the ignomy of having toddlers everywhere point at them and say, “Look, Mommy, it’s Dipsy from Teletubbies!”.

  12. Just read that 381 pounder Guard Deuce Luti visited with Seahawks. Hope there is enough material to make him a uniform if we happen to sign him.

  13. The Ravens are only making one minor change. The Raven on the side of their helmet will now be rocking a Flacco style uni-brow.

  14. Completely agree with Jeff Fisher about the old blue and white Rams uniforms.
    Would also like to see the Eagles go back to the old green and whites, with the white helmets. But that probably ain’t gonna happen…

    “SHEhawks”….Oh I get it cause She rhymes with Sea and they must play like girls….that was super witty. Jesus…what the hell are you a seven year old? You act like Seattle has been a perennial doormat forever ala the Lions “before 2011”. I don’t care what division they are in, with a winning record, 6 playoffs and a SB appearance over the past dozen years I would hardly say the “exceedingly lame” Seahawks don’t play “professional” football as you put it.

  16. The Steelers need a change to the third uniform. I love, love, love the simplicity of our black and white jerseys and certainly don’t want any change to the logo. But that third uniform … it just has a kind of … dookie vibe. Yeah, a change there would be good.

  17. Don’t worry about your unis.

    Worry about your rapists.

    Funny that a team in such a rainy city can’t shake out of its depressing color scheme.

    Yes because that lime green number was so popular.

    Hahahahahahahahaha!!!
    I almost spilled my beer reading this…

  20. Can the Eagles please go back to the old kelley green,silver, black, and white!!!!!! Those midnight green uni’s with the cartoon eagle head are soooooo dated!!!! Maybe it was cool in 1999 but its not cool at all anymore! Less is more now. Look at all the other teams in other leagues going back to their original logos and colors. Or if were stuck with the midnight green can we get the old white helmets with the dark green wings on them back. Somethin please this franchise needs a shot in the arm! Start with a new look please!!!

  21. The Seahawks haters….Your team is as irrelevant to us as we are to you. Don’t flatter yourself the Seahawks have probably beaten your team many times before. Stop acting like your team is the team to be and everyone else is “irrelevant”. Its a 32 team league in which the Seahawks have been one of the winningest since 2000.

    And the idiot who says classic teams stay the same? You are DUMB! Cowboys uniforms have changed big through the years. Jets have. Chargers have. Lots of teams have altered their uniforms, and if the Seahawks are trend setters then boooooooo hooooooo! Its time to look forward, and the Seahawks are the first team to make a drastic change and other teams WILL follow, Seattle is just the first. Please stop acting like your team is gods gift to NFL fans! Nobody cares about your team except your fans! Get over yourselves with your ignorant brain farts!

  22. No matter how awesome the new Seahawks uniforms will be the haters will call them ugly, BUT if it were there teams they’d be giving oral to Nike! I can hear it now already. Minds are made up

  23. Go figure right when I buy a new lynch and ET Jersey, they mess around and re design the unis. Hopefully they look good. Im anxious to see them

  24. Pretty obvious by these idiotic posts that a lot of so called football fans have no idea what is cooking in Seattle…

  25. The Steelers 3rd uniform is very interesting yet we’ve seen it before.
    Now as for the Jaguars nothing new is changing just did additional black jersey and the fly wire around the collar. 2013 is when the Jaguars get the big makeover.

    I’d like to see more of the redskins with gold pants and possibly the gold helmets!

    ———————————————-

    Are the Redskins the 49ers now?

  27. Maybe I’m just old but I, too would love to see the Rams (Lambs?!) return to the blue & white days. then perhaps the Vikings could return to their look from yesteryear, the (Dis) Chargers go back to the powder blues, the Patsies don the “Patriot Pat” look , the Deadskins return to the one feather helmets, the Steagels to their 60’s look & the donkeys to their burnt orange jerseys.

    Glad they’re not tampering with my Raiders unis. Like the yankees they are resplendent in their simplicity, although perhaps they could return to the name lettering style of the 60’s & 70’s. . .

    But something should be done for the Panthers & Jacksonville unis (I heresay the Jags will have all black jerseys), & perhaps something with the Ravens unis.

  28. antispy, worry about your own worthless franchise and how peyton manning is going to crush you for the next 3 to 4 years.

    Did Vince Lombardi coach the Niners? Even for one year? I’m ok with anything he left with my football team.

    ————————

    Cause the Lions have so much history. You know. With their 7 playoff wins in 81 years.

  31. WOW! A lot of jealous Rams and USC fans ripping on Seattle and Oregon. Join the rest of society and hope for better luck next year.

  32. I may be boaring but I love the Steelers current black and gold uniforms and hope they never change. Don’t even add the logo to the other side.

  33. To everyone ragging on the Hawks, be prepared for this season because we we’re robbed of the Super Bowl win once, it won’t happen again! The uniform won’t change anything but the team we’ve been building is going to take over and you’re all going to be eating your words when we take the win at Super Bowl this season!
