Eagles Considering a Return to Kelly Green Uniforms
NFL News: Eagles Looking to Turn Back the Clock
For two decades now the Philadelphia Eagles have worn midnight green uniformsbut that may soon change, as the team is reportedly talking to the NFL about switching back to their previous kelly green uniforms.
On Wednesday Eagles president, Dom Smolenski told a local radio station that the team was actively considering a return to its roots in kelly green.
We have talked about it and there aresome rules with the NFL that provides some restrictions that were trying to work through, but thats going to take some time.Its there, and its something that we do talk about, but until some things change at the NFL level its going to provide restrictions for us. It is being talked about it, yes.
But a change will not come easy for the Eagles, as it is a lengthy two year process to switch a teams uniform. Not only will they need approval from the league, but they will have to work with the NFLs marketing team along with Nike, the official jersey provider of the NFL.
At this point plans of a uniform change are only in the infant stages. So there is no guarantee that the Eagles will gain league approval nor can we expect to see any on field changes anytime soon.
