Explore Features of the New 2012 Nike NFL Jersey

Starting in 2012, Nike is the NFL’s new uniform supplier after previously sporting uniforms by Reebok. The last time Nike made NFL jerseys was back in the 1990s. Most teams have adopted the new NFL Elite 51 uniform featuring a stronger, lighter fabric for increased performance. For the fans, NFLShop.com offers three tiers of the new Nike NFL jersey: Elite, Limited, and Game jersey. This NFL Nike jersey buying guide will help you decide which jersey is perfect for you.

NFL Elite Jersey

The new Nike NFL Elite jersey is based off the NFL Elite 51 uniforms adopted by most teams and is closest to what the players wear on the field.

  • Flywire strength to resist stretching around the neck
  • Zoned stretched fabric
  • Flexible twill numbers
  • Strategic ventilation over body’s heat zones
  • Advanced, water repelling fabric
  • No-tag neck label

Four teams opted out of the Flywire collar (Cowboys, Patriots, Texans and Steelers). 5 teams opted out of the Elite 51 transformation altogether and kept their original design (Raiders, Packers, Eagles, Falcons, and Panthers).

NFL Limited Jersey

The Nike NFL Limited jersey has a quality that sits in between the Elite and Game jerseys.

  • Flywire strength
  • Twill numbers
  • Strategic ventilation over heat zones
  • No-tag neck label
  • Tailored fit designed for movement

NFL Game Jersey

The Nike NFL Game jersey is lightweight, strong, and comfortable for the casual fan to wear anywhere.

  • Tailored fit for movement
  • No-tag neck label for comfort
  • Silicon print numbers for lighter, softer feel
  • Lasting premium comfort
