NFL stars like Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald talk about the partnership between Nike and the NFL. Nike is the official uniform provider for the league, and STACK was there at the NYC launch event.
STACK was on hand to witness the unveiling of the new Nike uniforms for all 32 NFL teams. After the presentation, we caught up with a number of players around the league to get their thoughts on the new uniforms.
"It feels great. It's streamlined, it's sleek. It feels like it's a part of the body," Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said. Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said that he sweats a lot during the game, and he's most excited about the uniform's ability to wick away moisture. "Sweat just trickles off of you, so it doesn't soak into the uniform."
Many of the offensive players we talked to were most excited about the Nike Flywire designed to keep the collar comfortable and flush to the neck, making it difficult to tackle a player by the collar.
