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.
