Uniform agreement: Seahawks going to get new duds

Carolina Panthers altering their logo
By Scott Fowler, The Charlotte Observer

Why do we care about the Panthers changing their logo for the first time in the team's 18-year history? Well, have been rumors the Panthers and Seahawks were the two teams that notified the league of looming changes, presumably to logo and uniform.

In fact, the Seahawks uniforms will be changing.

That has been the word for a while now. In fact, president Peter McLoughlin said that more than six months ago during an interview with Dave Mahler of KJR Sports Radio in June 2011.

What we know: Nike becomes the NFL uniform supplier in 2012, taking over for Reebok. The expectation is the Seahawks will be getting new uniforms.

What we don't know: What those uniforms look like. There are a number of drawings on the InterGoogle, but those aren't official nor are they believed to be close to the actual model.

What we've heard: A little birdie gave out a few hints the helmets will be darker, and there will be some feather trim. The helmets are not expected to go back to being silver. But as McLoughlin indicated, it's not going to be a massive overhaul.

In other news, former Seahawks president Tim Ruskell -- who served as the Bears player-personnel director the past two years -- is out in Chicago. Phil Emery -- the Bears new general manager -- fired Ruskell.
