A rumor has been making the rounds on the Internet that the Denver Broncos could be getting a complete uniform redesign in the next couple of years. According to the buzz, Nike wants to take full control over the uniform design and come up with a new color scheme and logo for the team.
This would mean that the Broncos would no longer use orange as their primary color.
Considering the team is now 0-4 in Super Bowls while wearing orange jerseys, this could be a welcomed move by the players and fan base.
The rumor surfaced on the Broncos subreddit:
One of my very good friends and fraternity brothers works for a company called Hydrographics Inc. HGI works in conjunction with many sports outfitters (especially Nike) and is the leading company in helmet design in this nation. … I called up my buddy and asked him if there was any truth to the rumors. Here’s what he had to say:
Yes, (Broncos) are getting new uniforms
This has been in the making since Nike took over
Until this past Sunday’s events, Orange was to be the primary
Orange is no longer the primary as of Monday morning and Nike has been green lit to test a new color scheme
The Uniforms have a deadline of the 2015 Draft
This is the longest uniform project Nike has ever undertaken, and just like in 97 the Broncos will be given a template completely unique to them, not even Oregon will have this template for a couple years
A new logo is in the works
Phil Knight wants the Broncos to become the Oregon of the NFL. The team holds a special place in his heart as the first football team to let Nike have complete control over a design.
