ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) – Are you ready to buy a new Adrian Peterson jersey?
That is the hope of the NFL and Nike. Earlier today, the twitter account of UniWatch, a website dedicated to sports uniforms, had a leaked picture of the new Vikings uniforms.
According to the photo, the changes include the removal of the gold collar and the white singular stripe on the sleeves. The sleeves will now we a dual stripe, one gold, one white, but both thin.
Another change appears to be the shine of the purple helmet could be gone. The helmets look to have gone to a “matte” finish, a choice that many college schools, including the University of Minnesota, have gone with. It also seems that the Vikings have switched the shoe color from black to purple.
The home uniforms will stick with the purple jerseys and white pants, while the away uniforms will stick with the white tops and purple pants.
The team will unveil the uniforms at a pre-draft party Thursday night.
