Redskins to unveil 80th anniversary uniform tonight

These are the words directly from the Washington Redskins official blog page via Brian Tinsman:

The highlight of the event will be the unveiling of the team’s 2012 alternate Nike uniforms.

The new uniforms aren’t expected to be a replica of any past uniform, but rather a conglomerate of past uniforms and a sharp modern look. Many have argued that the Redskins’ uniforms are in need of a desperate update. The unveiling will be shown live via U-Stream on the team’s Facebook page from 5-6:30pm tonight.

There is some speculation as to whether or not the Redskins will have Robert Griffin III on to debut the uniform. One of our writers here at Riggo’s Rag, Tim Taylor, has confirmed that Griffin III is actually in Texas right now. I believe they will have Brian Orakpo (who was at the Nike unveiling in New York) do the job. That, or “The Captain”, London Fletcher. Regardless of who walks out there in uniform, I’m sure the twitterverse and blogosphere will erupt in reaction so stay tuned to Riggo’s Rag for more info!
