The Eagles announced they will be wearing their black jerseys for the early portion of the season because they have switched to Nike's new Elite 51 uniforms. Because midnight green is a custom color, the Elite 51 Eagles uniforms in midnight green will take longer to produce.
I'm not a huge fan of the black jerseys but I struggle to understand how the midnight green jerseys won't be available for the beginning of the season. Was it a total surprise the Eagles would be switching to this? (That's a legitimate question because I don't have any inside information on how this stuff works).
