The NFL and Nike held a joint press conference today to announce the new uniforms for 2012 and beyond, now that Nike took the uniform contract from Reebok. I love me some jerseys, so I was kinda hyped about this, but didn't expect any huge changes.
Here's the Bucs' new uniforms... I wonder if LaMichael James is concerned about how much less ridiculous his uni is now compared to college:

And my Steelers:
Nothing too ridiculous in all, except the Seahawks. They seem to be the NFL's version of the Oregon Ducks. Preview below; see their gallery on the Seahawks official site here.
If you go to Nike.com/NFL right now, you can pre-order the ordinary screen-printed jerseys, which used to be called "replica," and the "elite" (which would be the authentic on-field jersey), for any team. Looks like the "limited," which lines up with the "Replithentic" (replica but with stitched nameplate and numbers), is delayed til June.
