A net Netflix-like company is taking the expense away from fans who buy jerseys and is instead allowing them to rent jerseys.

According to ESPN, the company is called Rep The Squad and will let fans rent a jersey to wear and then send it back in a prepaid envelope.

For adults, the subscription will cost $19.95 a month and $16.95 a month for youth jerseys, ESPN reports.

ESPN says the company launched on Wednesday, but only features three teams. According to their website, they have jerseys for the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions.

Fans can get a variety of players' jerseys, which include Barry Sanders, Calvin Johnson, Eric Ebron, Ziggy Ansah, Golden Tate, Matthew Stafford, Jarrad Davis, Marvin Jones and Theo Riddick.

The Lions jerseys also come in the Honolulu Blue home jersey, white away and silver color rush. Plus, some players have the throwback Honolulu blue retired jersey like Sanders.

According to ESPN, the company hopes to get involved with all four professional leagues.
