All NFL Teams to Give Away 90 Autographed Jerseys
The NFL has announced that all 32 of its teams will be honoring their fans with a special giveaway during the preseason. Each team will distribute 90 autographed jerseys to randomly selected fans. Players, owners and coaches will present them in special ceremonies across the league.
The special jerseys were designed as part of a collaboration involving the NFL and Reebok. The numbers were unchanged but the nameplate on the back of the jersey was left blank with the idea that the autographs could be better personalized to the fans.
Several of the teams will have a special pregame presentation, while others will allow the 90 fans to run on-field after the players to collect their autographed jerseys. The Green Bay Packers have already hosted their giveaway at a special practice and scrimmage at Lambeau Field.
“We have the greatest fans in the world," said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “This is an opportunity to recognize the millions of fans for their dedication and passion for the NFL, its teams and players throughout the year."
