The New England Pats will wear “Nike” jerseys in celebration of the start-of-the-NFL season.
It’s a tribute to the NFL’s greatest player of all-time, Tom Brady, who passed away Monday.
The Patriots are one of just two teams in the NFL with the jersey.
The other is the Seattle Seahawks.
In 2011, the Patriots wore “Nippon” jerseys, and it was a nod to the team’s former owner, Robert Kraft.
“It’s a great honor for all of us at New England to wear this jersey, especially during the season,” Brady said on his social media page.
“It’s also a great tribute to my friends, the team and our city.”
A number of NFL teams have released their official uniforms, and the Patriots will wear their home and away jerseys as well.
The jersey design will be the first for the Patriots’ season, as the team opens the season in Buffalo on Sept. 3.
The first home game of the season will be on Sept 18 against the Minnesota Vikings at Gillette Stadium.
