(NEW YORK) — This is the first season the NFL is using jerseys made by Nike as opposed to Reebok. While some players have had glowing reviews of Nike’s jerseys, some players don’t like them one bit.
The new jerseys have new fabric, better fitting, and are considered an advanced form of sportswear. Also, when the jerseys get wet with either rain or sweat, they don’t retain water and stick to a player’s body better.
Still, according to the Wall Street Journal, some of the lineman in the NFL aren’t big fans of the snugger fit jerseys.
“I don’t really care for the new jerseys,” Ravens defensive lineman Terrence Cody said. “I feel like they should put different material in for the big guys.” Cody weighs 341 pounds.
“It makes me look fat, and I’m not fat,” San Francisco 49ers guard Alex Boone said. Boone weighs 300 pounds.
“It looks like you ate a small baby,” Mrs. Boone chimed in.
Despite some player’s objections, the Nike jerseys are here to stay for the long haul.
