Count Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who wore Nike at Virginia Tech, among those in favor of the new appear.
“It’s amazing. It’s a excellent chance for Nike and it’s a wonderful chance for the NFL,” Vick told NFL Network. “We’ll really feel very good and we’ll play great, and I’m really excited for the Nike brand.”

• Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher believes the tight jerseys will cut down holding and lead to greatness for Chicago’s Julius Peppers. Urlacher told NFL Network the defensive end is set for sacks” thanks to the new form-fitting jerseys.
• Opponents weren’t excited about facing Ndamukong Suh just before, but has Detroit’s defensive behemoth ever looked more menacing?
