If you’re looking at plunking down over a hundred bucks for an authentic Redskins jersey you might want to wait a few months.
That always is solid advice for Redskins fans given the roster churn the team seems to experience at a very high rate. In fact, when someone asks me for a recommendation I suggest a throwback Jurgensen or Green.
But our corporate cousins at Pro Football Talk passed along an additional reason to wait. In April, Reebok is out as the official apparel supplier for the NFL and Nike is in. And apparently that will mean more than just replacing the Reebok logo with the swoosh.
“We plan on changing the NFL jersey dramatically just like we’ve done with the college programs,” Nike brand president Charlie Denson told Darren Rovell of CNBC.
It seems doubtful that Nike will have NFL teams were uniforms that are as radically different as those worn by the University of Oregon, although there is no guarantee of that.
But from what Denson says, we can expect changes that are more revolutionary the evolutionary. It might be wise to keep your money in your pocket and hang on to that Clinton Portis 26 jersey for a while longer.
Update: When the switch to Nike was first made, some creative individual came up with some potential designs. Here is the Redskins uniform: (h/t to @TMM75)
