'Leaked' NFL Nike Uniform Sketches Are Fake

WASHINGTON - In October, the NFL announced Nike will replace Reebok as the official uniform supplier for players starting in 2012. However in recent days, sketches of supposed "leaked" concept Nike uniforms have been floating around on message boards and blogs on the internet, creating a frenzy for fans. These dramatic-looking uniforms feature designs that are a bit similar looking to the Nike "Pro Combat" uniforms designed for 10 college teams for the 2010 season.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy has confirmed on his Twitter account that "the artist renderings of NFL uniforms floating around ARE NOT from the league or Nike. stand down." According to Nike, NFL fans should still expect noticeable changes for uniforms in 2012, whenever the real uniform designs are released. Nike's brand president Charlie Denson told CNBC's Darren Rovell: "We plan on changing the NFL jersey dramatically just like we've done with the college programs, using new thinking and the greatest technology available. The NFL program hasn't had the same type of advancement in recent years." SOURCE: FOX
