The Seahawks released their new-look Nike uniforms last year. The Jacksonville Jaguars released theirs earlier this week. Yesterday, the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings followed suit with some jersey alterations of their own.
Both new looks stay true to tradition, and if you’re a casual fan of other teams around the League it’s hard to notice the subtle differences at first.
The Dolphins’ jersey unveiling came at Sun Life Stadium prior to the team’s draft party. According to Nike, the Dolphins’ look “stays true to its roots, while harnessing the city’s modern cutting-edge characteristics.”
The Vikings’ release came at their draft party as well. The look is described by Nike as “a modern representation of Nordic culture combined with the Vikings’ long-standing football tradition.”
Former Seahawks center Grant Feasel passed away Sunday morning. He was 52 years of age.
Originally drafted in the sixth round of the 1983 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Colts after a highly decorated college football career at Abilene Christian University in Texas, Feasel would go on to play for the Minnesota Vikings before joining the Seahawks as a free agent in 1987. Feasel found success in Seattle and was named the Seahawks’ starting center from 1989-91, playing and starting in 47 games, a stretch which included playing every offensive snap of the 1989 season when the Seahawks finished 7-9.
Feasel played in 117 games in the NFL, 91 of which came in six seasons with Seattle.
