2012 Nike kits?
 
Any idea when these might be revealed? Im thinking March/April time, after the dust has settled on this season...

They'll be the same as now, but with a Nike logo instead of a Reebok one, I would have thought. This isn't like Football where Chelsea have 6 variations on a solid blue shirt in a season, and you have to have the current advertisment on the front in order to stay up to date.

I think Nike will make design changes, Id be surprised if they're identical, and that would possibly draw a lawsuit from Reebok if they've trademarked their designs.

Im planning on grabbing a Jets jersey, but theres not much point this season if Nike are releasing new ones next year. It seems all the NFL shops are starting to run dry of stock too as Reebok have probably stopped manufacturing them...

They'll be different but not by much. You might get a few totally new 'alternate' kits (a la Chargers powder blue). Here's hoping for a Pats red :D As for when, I imagine July or so.

there'll be plenty of reasons to get reebok jerseys come the end of the season, there'll no doubt be a nice sum of money off of them, like when the bills introduced the new strip, all the old ones were 50% off, Reebok will make a killing from reducing the price.

Pretty sure they will be revealed in April. Love this trailer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvWHNkLSDkg :)

I know Seattle are getting new uniforms, not sure about anyone else.

Denver are changing their uniform from navy to orange jerseys from 2012 onwards.http://www.milehighreport.com/2011/1...denver-broncos

The way the NFL works is that the individual teams have to tell the NFL and announce a uniform change years in advance. I don't know how this works when the whole leagues uniform manufacturer changes but I'm pretty sure that the 90s-2001 Patriots wore Adidas jerseys and when the Broncos changed to navy in 97 they were Nike and in both cases they were identical to the ones they've worn since 2002, when Reebok took over, the only difference is the Reebok logo.

If your team hasn't announced anything about a change to the uniform expect to see nothing but a change from a Reebok logo to a Nike swoosh.

That's exactly it. There's not likely to be any other differences.

Pats red. ala Steve Grogan and Tony Eason of the 85 season. :) That would be a nice reminder of past glories too. I still love the old Pats logo from that era too. Only seen on the throw back hats nowadays I suspect

I can't see the Raiders making any change to their uniform. Its very plain, very simple and very apt IMO!
