[UPDATE] Like Fortnite's other cosmetic items, the NFL jersey skins in Fortnite have rotated out of the in-game store. Whether or not they ever return remains to be seen. This is all normal, as Fortnite's in-game store sells items for set periods of time. [UPDATE END]
You have just about an hour left to grab the jerseys, as they leave the store tonight (November 13). They leave the store at 8 PM EST / 5 PM PST.
You can buy jerseys for all 32 NFL teams, and then customise it with any number from 0-99. The jerseys costs 1,500 V-Bucks, which works out to around $15. Within the jerseys category, you can select variants including Strong Guard, End Zone, Gridiron, and Spike as a unique style.

In addition to the jerseys, you can buy various football-related extras such as the Whistle Warrior outfit (800 V-Bucks), the Striped Soldier outfit (800 V-Bucks), the Upright axe (800 V-Bucks), the Golden Pigskin axe (500 V-Bucks) the First Downer axe (500 V-Bucks), the Touchdown glider (500 V-Bucks)
The deal between the NFL and Epic was probably a lucrative one, but it's not exactly the best look. You can find numerous examples on social media of people creating representations of controversial NFL figures like Michael Vick with a dog on his back and Aaron Hernandez pointing a gun. The jersey skins rotating out of the in-game store is nothing out of the ordinary for Fortnite, as the game's numerous cosmetic items cycle out eventually. In the case of the NFL jersey skins, they stayed in the store longer than many other Fortnite items.
This story has been updated to clarify the availability situation surrounding the NFL jersey skins.
