Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Unveil New Logo, New Helmet on Thursday


When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers changed their uniforms from creamsicle orange to the red and pewter they currently wear, it signaled a change in the franchise. The entire culture of the team changed as the old “Yucks” were left behind and a new, more modern team became an instant contender.

And for the first time since that uniform change in the 1990′s, the Buccaneers will be modifying their outfits ahead of the 2014 season.

According to Warren Sapp on Twitter, he and Gerald McCoy will unveil the new version of the Buccaneers’ helmet on NFL Network on Thursday.

 

The Buccaneers’ current uniform and helmet combo looks just fine, but there may be a good reason for the team to make a change.

The Buccaneers experienced some helmet drama last season, as they were unable to wear their throwback uniforms with alternate helmets due to head injury regulations limiting them to only approved helmets. So is this new helmet going to be designed to better match with an alternate uniform?

The one hint that Sapp provided was that the helmet would have a chrome grill.

We won’t have to wait long to find out just what the helmet will look like. Be sure to tune in to NFL Network on Thursday evening to see it for the first time.

Update: The Buccaneers’ twitter account also revealed that the team’s logo would be undergoing a change as a part of the redesign of the helmet.

    This is retarded. I love the current design. And if this is a reactionary change to throwback week, shame on them. I’ll be calling for early 2000′s “throw back” every week now.

    The uniform better not change and logo change better not be drastic because I just bought a Lavonte David jersey a month ago.

  • Robert McNail III

    We better draft Sammy Watkins. He can do it all. Kickoff return, punt return, and is #1spot Wide receiver!

    The current logo is pretty good… the only thing I would change is to not have a football in it.
