WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Nike has taken over as the NFL's official apparel maker for the next five years and unveiled the new uniforms around 11 a.m. Tuesday.
The unveiling generated lots of buzz about what the Redskins jerseys may look like this season. Some images were reportedly leaked online.
Whether those photos were the real deal or not was heavily debated Tuesday morning, but Washington Redskins Line Backer Brian Orakpo (@rak98) seemed to approve of the new Redskins uniform on Twitter before the unveiling.
He tweeted: "At the Nike NFL Launch Event the New Redskins uniform is sweet!!! Will have a pic for I guys later today!"
