Only change on new Packers jersey: Nike swoosh

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Apr 3, 2012

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The National Football League and new exclusive jersey maker Nike has unveiled the new Packers jerseys to be worn during the 2012 season.

The only change: the Nike swoosh instead of the Reebok logo.

Nike signed up for a multi-year exclusive merchandising contract with the National Football League.

The Packers' green-and-gold jersey colors have not changed since 1959, when Vince Lombardi instituted the uniform as head coach and general manager.
