The Denver Broncos, NFL, and Nike unveiled the team’s new uniform for the 2012 season and beyond on Tuesday in New York, which drew mixed reactions.  No drastic changes were made to the design of Denver’s uniform, but the material is said to be “cutting edge” and lighter than the team’s 2011 uniform.

Most of the notable changes to the uniform are near the collar of the jersey (closer image here), with the jersey itself looking quite similar to the team’s 2011 orange alternate, as we predicted it would.  Fans have had a mixed reaction to the announcement, as some were expecting more drastic changes.

It should be noted that Nike never hyped up big ramifications to Denver’s uniform design, and those Photoshops that floated around the web were fake and Nike had no association with them.  Those flashy ‘Shops with white helmets and a mix of old-school looks and modern design gave fans false impressions of what the team’s new uniform would look like.

The team’s new look is a bit flashier than 2011′s design, and cornerback Champ Bailey likes them — you can’t argue with him!  According to Buffalo Bills safety George Wilson, the Seattle Seahawk’s new design was the overwhelming favorite among the players.  That may mean we’ll see more Oregon Duck-like uniforms down the road.

Nike is taking over as the NFL’s supplier of on-field and sideline apparel starting this month, a position Reebok had held for the past ten years.  The new jerseys will go on sale Thursday, April 26th — the first day of the 2012 NFL Draft.

What are your thoughts on Denver’s new uniform?  Were you expecting more changes?
