Sideline caps to bear American flag

In an interesting twist between Nike's player endorsements and Reebok's licensing deal with the NFL, the league announced that 26 of the 31 NFL teams will be supplied with Reebok-logoed caps, which will bear the American flag. ...

Players, coaches and team officials will be allowed to wear their caps on the sidelines, according to NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy.

Reebok currently holds a league licensing deal with 26 teams that will eventually include all 31. This has created dissention in the ranks as of late, particularly with players who have endorsement deals with Nike to wear a "swoosh" hat on the sidelines.

The Reebok hats will be sold to the public as well, once the flags are sewn on. McCarthy told SeahawksInsider early Wednesday morning that they do not know yet when Seattle fans may have a chance to pick up a new Seahawks cap.
