Can't commit? Now you can rent a Detroit Lions jersey

Whether you're a fair weather fan who wants a jersey for just one game, or a super fan who wants an entire wardrobe of

Maybe you're a tepid fan who is leery of dropping at least $150 on a Detroit Lions jersey because, you know, the Lions.

Maybe you're a super fan who wants an entire wardrobe of jerseys but can't stomach the price tag on such an investment.

Either way, this could be good news for you: Now, instead of  spending big bucks on a jersey you can rent one.

Rep the Squad is a new-this-season jersey subscription service. Think: old school through-the-mail Netflix but with football jerseys instead of movies.

For $19.95 a month — which includes shipping — you can wear as many Lions jerseys as you want.

The selection includes home jerseys and away jerseys and color rush jerseys from the Lions, in addition to the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers.   It also includes jerseys from some past players, which, in the case of the Lions, means Barry Sanders.

Rep the Squad CEO Brian Watkins came up with the idea for the subscription service because he thought it'd be cool to have a wardrobe of jerseys, enough to wear a different one any time you wanted.

"You might have that (Matthew) Stafford jersey, but maybe you want to give a shout out to Golden (Tate)," Watkins said.

”You get access to our entire collection of jerseys. They're all authentic, licensed Nike jerseys. You can wear it for as long as you want. When you're finished with it, you send it back in a prepaid envelope You can send it back dirty. We're going to clean it anyway."
