Nike Plans to Turn NFL Teams Into the Oregon Ducks


As you may know by now, Nike will become the official apparel and uniform supplier of the NFL in 2012.

And if you know anything about Nike when it comes to football, you know that they like to make things…interesting.

You have seen some of the, uh, futuristic designs the Oregon Ducks have sported over the last few years.

Stuff like what you see to the right over there —->

So it should come as no surprise that Nike has some plans to spice things up in the NFL next year. No, you won’t see wholesale changes–things like reflective metallic helmets, or gaudy uniforms–yet, anyway. But you will see changes to accessories. For example, have a look at these suckers after the jump.

Initially, this seems to be a bit much. But there’s unlimited merchandising potential here for the NFL and Nike–this is the future look of the NFL. The vintage blue and white of the Colts is on the way out–the outrageous color combos of teams like the Arizona Cardinals is in. Get ready.
