The NFL raises the curtain on its 2016 Color Rush offerings on Tuesday. Coincidentally, you now can buy plenty of Color Rush items of your very own.
Making the operative color green, as it always is.
Jerseys, shoes, hats, and T-shirts are available through Nike.com, the official apparel supplier and the company that undoubtedly has pushed for teams to adopt new uniforms and, via the Color Rush program, the entire league to adopt 32 of them.
The fact that several teams won’t even wear their Color Rush jerseys due to considerations like colorblindness doesn’t matter. You can own, for example, the solid-green Jets jersey or the all-blue Texans top regardless of whether you’ll see the Jets wear those jerseys this Thursday (you won’t) or the Texans wear them next Thursday (you won’t).
That’s all immaterial. The jerseys can still be bought, which is what Nike and the NFL want you to do.
