Fall’s not in the air yet, and two-a-days are a thing of the past. Even though we’re in the middle of summer, NFL football is preparing to dominate the sports landscape again. This year should be an exciting one since teams have had a full offseason to prepare (no lockout like last year), and coaches have had full access to the players. Training camp is around the corner, so soon enough fans will start to wear their NFL apparel, organize tailgates, draft fantasy teams, and gear up for another fun year of football.
Two major changes need to be pointed out though: (1) Nike is now manufacturing NFL apparel. This year they willÂ produce all of the NFL jerseys. They promised to make the jerseys lighter and more form fitting, so the game actually gets faster. (2) New Era has taken over the contract to produce all of the NFL hats. This means that football, much like MLB baseball, will now have fitted 59fifty hats on the sidelines.
