What does it say that in an unusual NFL offseason in which not one but two defensive linemen who will be at least mentioned in eventual Hall of Fame conversations, Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy, were available in free agency and the Chicago Bears ne…

When Mike Furrey said recently that every single one of his current receivers can have long careers in the NFL, perhaps it was hyperbole. Can we blame the Bears WR coach who entered last offseason with perhaps the league’s worst group, paced by Kenda…

PFW's fantasy football coverage is ramping up during the NFL's downtime, and after recently unveiling our first "ADP Alerts" of the summer, we're continuing our division-by-division look at the entire league, answering burning questions for all 32 te…

Today uniform changes are no longer as simple as checking fabric samples. The NFL's creative division, first started by then-Commissioner Pete Rozelle in the 1960s, helps teams design new looks in a process that can take up to five years. Tampa Bay had the biggest redesign, switching from white and creamsicle orange with a pirate in 1996 to a waving, tattered flag with pewter and red colors in 1997. The Bucs tweaked that again in March 2014.

Then there are perceived jinxes regarding uniforms. When Seattle lost to Chicago at home early in 2009, the Seahawks didn't wear the neon-green jerseys again, with then-coach Jim Mora having a simple answer: "We didn't win in them."

Teams are allowed two optional uniforms with choices of an alternate color, a throwback or the Color Rush featuring one color.

Helmets became mandatory in 1943, and Los Angeles Rams halfback Fred Gehrke painted horns on his helmet in 1948.

Alphabetically, and not by order of sales, Dallas, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Seattle and New England are the NFL teams with the best-selling jerseys over the past five years. Competing for or winning championships certainly helps popularity. And some looks are simply built to last, making for an iconic look like the Oakland Raiders.
