Last month, the NFL announced that Nike will become the league's official uniform provider starting in 2012, speculation began that there were some big wardrobe changes in store for your favorite team's uniform.

Nike has been supplying college uniforms for some time and the "Pro Combat" designs that they released this year have been very popular. You've probably seen them on the top-ranked Oregon Ducks.

Well, if Nike has their way, NFL jerseys could look a lot more like those in the college game.

Here is the link to a blog post by Sarah Ellison on baltimoreravens.com. Keep in mind, these are just sketches and do not reflect anything that the NFL has released, but it is fun to imagine.

Could this be what the Eagles look like when they run out of the tunnel in 2012?

My personal favorite? The Kansas City Chiefs. They're a bit over the top, but the helmet seals the deal. Take a look.

Disclaimer: Here is a link that discredits the report that these are future uniforms. Thanks to the commenters that pointed this out. I know these aren't really the new Eagles uniforms, but after seeing what Nike has done with college uniforms, they very well could look something like this.
