You might have heard that the NFL has changed its official uniform vendor to Nike (formerly Reebok). Most of the new merchandise became available Sunday, but as ESPN.com's Paul Lukas points out, a formal revelation of game uniforms is scheduled for Tuesday at 11 a.m. ET.

Despite a dirty April Fool's Twitter rumor started by Green Bay Packers tight end Tom Crabtree, all indications are that any uniform changes in the NFC North will be modest at best. You won't see Oregon or Maryland, that's for sure. The Detroit Lions can't make any adjustments because they haven't exceeded the NFL's five-year rule between changes since their 2009 re-do.

(You can scroll Crabtree's feed to get a feel for the chaos he caused Sunday after hinting that Nike had dropped the "G" from the Packers' helmet. It's not true.)

For those who need up-to-the-minute information, Lukas says he will be tweeting his observations from Tuesday's announcement in real time. Follow him here. I'll post photographs on the blog when available. Then and only then can you decide whether to spend your life's savings on a new jersey.
