Starting in 2012, Nike will replace Reebok as the league's official uniform provider.
We've seen how Nike has put a wacky spin on Oregon's football uniforms, and their funky looking NCAA Pro Combat unis, released this year, got a mixed reaction from college football fans.
Personally, I kinda liked 'em, but that's just me.
Nike has promised to dramatically redesign the current NFL uniforms, so when a so-called "leaked" Nike NFL uniform design hit the internet today, some believed that to be how the unis would look come 2012.
Turns out, that uniform design was a hoax.
According to an NFL spokesman, the uniform mock-ups did not come from the league or Nike.
Where they actually did come from is anyone's guess, but the league is claiming that the designs are fakes.
You can see the Ravens' (fake) uni at right. I actually didn't mind it too much, although I think it would've looked sharper if the pants and helmet had been black.
I kinda like the white helmet, but the white pants just look weird to me with the black and purple jersey.
I guess it doesn't really matter what I think or how these images look, however, because these uniforms aren't real.
But hey, at least it gave us something to talk about for part of a Friday afternoon.
