Eagles wide receivers will be the first to wear uniquely designed Nike hands for the team’s next game against Dallas, the company announced Friday.

The Nike Pro Combat Hand is engineered to provide the receiver with the openability and closeability necessary to catch an NFL football in the end zone while utilizing advanced fabrics to reduce weight, Nike said in a release.

The Eagles are also in talks with Nike to develop a Pro Combat Gameclock designed specifically to reduce excess timeouts.
