Jun 7, 2024

The NFL denied that the Packers and Eagles would not be allowed to wear uniforms with green at their season-opening game Sept. 6 in Brazil because allegedly the color is affiliated with gangs there. The league also denied that the teams would be restricted to their hotels with armored vehicles taking them to the stadium.

Packers running back Josh Jacobs told former NFL star Chris Long on his Green Light with Chris Long podcast, “They said the part of Brazil we’re going into you can’t even wear green … They said like I guess something to do with the gangs.
