Detroit Lions release new jersey for 2017

Detroit Lions release new jersey for 2017

Team president Rod Wood announced that the four new uniforms will be available for purchase at the official team store following the release of the uniforms on Thursday.

Wood said the decision to get new jerseys started a season ago, when he saw the franchise's all-black color rush jersey the team never ended up wearing.

Two of the Detroit Lions new uniforms that were revealed on Thursday night. "So it was a great process".

"I'm in love because not only do we get to wear something new but we all get to walk into the locker room every Sunday and not expect the same traditional blue or white", Ebron said.

Today, Wood and the Lions revealed the actual uniforms to the public, and the changes are small. They will wear "color rush", uniforms for the first time, sporting grey jerseys and trousers, and throwbacks for the first time since 2010. He said he's "in love" with the new design and that they can mix and match jersey and trousers more. "We're excited, it helps boost the morale in the locker room - when you walk in you're not looking at the same thing you're looking at something new". Wood said the Lions had to apply to the National Football League to make it a permanent change to their jerseys.

Trump has pledged to defund Planned Parenthood in the past, so it came as no surprise when he signed the bill into law. Anthony List, and Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America, attended the bill signing.

While there are no other details included in the invite they do use one hashtag on the graphic - #MicrosoftEDU. But my sources now tell me that a Surface Pro revision won't be part of the event either.

Senate Confirms Gorsuch To Supreme Court
What stands out the most with his confirmation is how transparent the administration has been with this process since day one. And in many ways the showdown had been pre-ordained, the final chapter in years of partisan warfare over judicial nominees.

The uniforms weigh just 20.4 ounces and repel water and have improved ventilation.

Wood said part of his desire in redoing the uniforms was to get rid of black from the team's color scheme.

"It's not like I ran 60 yards with it, so we're definitely going to have to test that out, but it definitely feels a lot better", Ebron said. Wood also said the team could mix and match the looks and wouldn't limit the throwbacks to being worn on Thanksgiving. I'm not entirely sure why the Lions made a decision to bring back anything related to that year, but here we are. "The schedule coming out next Thursday will be a focus too".

The Detroit Lions have not won a playoff game since 1991.

The helmets feature different striping, the same logo and the only silver face masks in the NFL.
