Hawks change style


The NFL’s switch to Nike uniforms meant only subtle changes for most teams. Not so the Seattle Seahawks, who decided an overhaul was in order. The new Seahawks uniforms unveiled Tuesday featured a change to a deeper shade of dark blue, neon green highlights throughout and a third alternate uniform in a shade of gray. The alternate uniform can be worn for either home or road games and is far different from the lime green alternate uniforms the Seahawks wore during the 2009 season. Seattle was the one team to get a significant uniform change. Gone was the shade of blue that debuted when the Seahawks moved into their new stadium in 2002. The Seahawks’ logo is larger on the helmets and wraps around to meet at a point in the back. – AP
