Are you ready for the orange to return to our beloved orange and blue Denver Broncos?  In one week from today, the Broncos’ uniform will return to being orange-dominated like it was from 1965-1997.

A new era in Broncos history will begin on Tuesday, April 3rd when the NFL and Nike Inc. unveil the league’s 2012 uniforms, previously manufactured by Reebok.  Nike and the NFL have agreed on a five-year deal, making Nike the official apparel provider of the NFL through 2017.

The Broncos, who were granted permission from the league to change their primary jersey color to orange, will be involved in the launching event in New York on the 3rd.  While no drastic ramifications are expected for Denver’s uniform, we expect Nike will tweak the Broncos’ look, even if just slightly.

We don’t know how the uniform will look (other than quite similar to the team’s 2011 alternate orange-based uniforms), but Nike did release images of what the team’s Vapor Jet Gloves will look like (image here).  New Era has also unveiled the team’s 2012 Draft Cap (image here).

Those creative Photoshop Nike uniforms that have been floating around are not real, and do not necessarily reflect what the Broncos’ new uniform will look like.  Nike will however implement their signature flashy designs to each team’s uniforms — with some team’s ramifications being more drastic than others, per Nike President and CEO Mark Parker.

We’re excited about the return to orange and the possibility of some changes to Denver’s game-day apparel.  Check back next Tuesday for full details on the new Denver Broncos uniform.
