SEATTLE – The Seahawks’ green jerseys are back.
The NFL and Nike released this year’s Thursday Night Color Rush game uniforms and, as rumored, the Seahawks will wear lime green jerseys with blue numbers when they host the Los Angeles Rams in December.
They’ll also wear matching green pants.
The Seahawks call it "Action Green."
While the NFL is selling all yellow Color Rush jerseys for the Rams, they will play in white uniforms in the game Dec. 15 on KING 5. Several teams will have to wear white during the Color Rush games because of issues last season with people who are color blind.
The jerseys are on sale online and available at Seahawks Pro Shop stores.
The Seahawks wore green jerseys only once before in a game. It was during an ugly 25-19 loss at home to the Chicago Bears in 2009, three years before the current uniform style was adopted. After the game, Seahawks coach Jim Mora was quoted as saying the jerseys were retired because “We didn’t win in them.”
The team has worn green jerseys on the practice field since last season.
