New Eagles Nike Uniforms Are Not Really New

New, comments

Nike released the first look at the new Eagles jerseys today and as you can see.... They're more or less identical. Other than replacing the Reebok logo with a Nike logo, the jerseys you currently have in your closet don't appear to be going out of date any time soon.

After the jump we've got a list of all the new technology that went into the new unis, which isn't insignificant, but if you're buying the fan replicas I doubt you'll notice any major change. Looks wise, this much awaited announcement hasn't amounted to much, not that we would have expected it to anyway.

The one team who will see fairly major changes are the Seahawks, who like the Oregon Ducks appear to be the guinea pigs for Nike, which is based in the Pacific Northwest. Much like the Ducks, the Seahawks new unis are a mix of pretty cool and pretty ugly.
