Internet leaks pictures of new Vikings' uniforms

The Vikings were set to reveal their new uniforms at their draft party Thursday at Mall of America Field, but an inadvertent photo leak on a Jacksonville TV news website beat them to it.

Actionnewsjax.com posted photos of the Jaguars’ new uniforms — which were officially released Tuesday — and along with them accidentally revealed the Vikings’ new look as well. Most of the changes are subtle, but among the more noticeable differences: purple pants instead of white pants with the white uniform tops (presumably the new road look) and a different numbering style on the front of jerseys.

Said Vikings spokesman Jeff Anderson, via Twitter: “Yes, image of #VikingsUniforms was leaked, but team has full reveal campaign planned for fans at Draft Party. That doesn’t change.”
