Nike has unveiled new NFL uniforms today in New York, and receiver Wes Welker was the model for the Patriots' new look. You can see Welker in the photo above, on the left side, courtesy of NikeInc.com.

Nike took over for Reebok this year as the NFL's uniform supplier. On their website, they describe the uniforms as a "system rooted in body-led design, built for a body-contoured fit resulting in zero distractions in order to help amplify speed."

The picture to the left shows a closer look at the Patriots uniform on Welker.
