Seahawks to Wear New Alternate Jerseys Sunday vs. Buffalo
The last time the Seahawks wore an alternate jersey back in 2009, they lost. Those jerseys were never worn again. Hopefully, this Sunday will be different.
Many teams around the NFL have alternate colored or design jerseys in addition to their regular home and away tops. The Seattle Seahawks tried this for the first time during the 2009 season, wearing a neon lime green jersey against the Chicago Bears.
This is what they looked like.
The Seahawks lost to the Bears, and the green jerseys were never worn again.
After last season Nike became the uniform provider to the NFL. They did a complete redesign for the Seahawks, with new home blue and road white jerseys. They also did a “wolf grey” alternate uniform, which will be worn for the first time Sunday against the Buffalo Bills in Toronto.
Will these new uniforms bring the Seahawks a win, or will they be a bust? They are already bringing in great sales revenues from fans. On Wednesday, the Seahawks said jersey sales have ballooned by 274 percent at the two team retail stores and online. And two weeks ago, Fanatics.com said it had seen a 242 percent increase in Seahawks merchandise sales over last season — the second largest jump among all NFL teams, behind only the Houston Texans.
