The Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t done yet with their “post-Schiano” makeover. After their big reveal on NFL Network, showing off the new team logo and helmet, the team announced that new uniforms are on their way in just a couple of weeks.
According to the team’s official website, there will be a press conference on March 5th at 2 PM at One Buc Place to reveal the new jerseys, which will then go on sale shortly thereafter.
The team also confirmed via their website that the color of the helmet is pewter, although it is a darker shade. The team also posted the thoughts of the team’s leader, Gerald McCoy, who had this to say about the new look:
- “The logo stands out, and that’s exactly what we want to do in the NFL. People will see us and say, ‘That’s the Bucs.’ There are so many unique things about this helmet, and that’s what we want to be as a team and as an organization.”
Will the new uniforms ditch red as a base color? Black or dark pewter now enter the equation as shirt colors, with white being an obvious choice.
And what will the alternate jersey be? It almost certainly isn’t a throwback, as the orange is nowhere to be found on this helmet, and the old logo wouldn’t look right against the background color.
