The Seahawks haven't made any significant changes to their uniforms since 2002, but that all changed yesterday when the team unveiled their new uniforms.
While fan reactions on Twitter from been iffy over the new changes, Walter Thurmond, third-year cornerback from the University of Oregon has not only checked out the new Seahawks uniform, but gave it a feel.
According to the Seahawks website, Thurmond wore the new uniforms for a sneak preview and gave it two raised gloves, and two extended palms, up. Being dubbed by Thurmond as new age, the cornerback explains that it's transitioning from where we are as an organization and where the league is going.
In 2002, the Seahawks changed their helmets from silver to blue, as well as the color scheme of the logo. This latest change finds the team logo different, a two-toned helmet, neon green highlights and a third alternate uniform in wolf grey, explains the Seattle Times.
The Seahawks aren't the only team to be having a uniform makeover. Since Nike replaced Reebok as the NFL's official uniform supplier, all teams uniforms will be re-designed.

@_iKia - Seahawks new uniforms are tough!
@JayOnrait - Take heart @Seahawks fans, your new uniforms aren't as bad as some teams. Sure those teams are defunct XFL franchises, but still...
@GWilson37 - Look out for the Seahawks uniforms, their uniforms were the overwhelming favorite amongst the players. They will be the Oregon of the NFL.
@JerryBrewer - I don't have a strong opinion on the #Seahawks uniforms. I care more about the players actually in them. And I'm excited about those guys.
@BusterJamey - Man the @Seahawks uniforms are very very different WOW I'm so happy my @Steelers didn't change much at all!
@BenMyerslolwtf - I forgot to tweet about this...the Seahawks new uniforms are absolutely hideous in every sense of the word.
