The Buccaneers could return to their former jersey glory as soon as 2022.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have great jerseys now. The current iterations are some of the best threads the Bucs have ever worn, blowing the ones from the 2010s out of the water by comparison.

Compared to the rest of the NFL, the Bucs have great jerseys that are easy to recognize after the Super Bowl win, but these still aren’t the best that the team can put on the field, even the iconic all-pewter look.

No, Bucs fans know exactly what the best jerseys are, and no current team in the league is wearing them. The all-time best NFL jerseys are the creamsicles from those Buccaneers teams of old. Those jerseys and colors will always mean something special in the Tampa area, yet the team hasn’t been able to wear them in recent years due to an NFL rule regarding alternate helmets.

While this rule will remain in place through the 2021 season for seemingly no reason, the ban on alternate helmets will end before the 2022 season. Assuming the Buccaneers make the right decision, which they have done plenty as of late, Bucs fans should expect to see Tom Brady in the throwbacks after one more season.

Just imagine Devin White blowing up a quarterback in the backfield in these perfect colors. Or Mike Evans doing his classic celebration after a monstrous touchdown wearing the best uniform in team history. We’ll probably even get to see a few patented “LFGs” from Tom Brady wearing the same jersey as some of the best players in franchise history. The GOAT wearing the GOAT jersey; we could get used to that.

Knowing that there is an end in sight could make it that much harder to wait for what we know is coming, but fans should take heart knowing Tampa already has some great jerseys to rely on in their Super Bowl defense campaign. They just happen to fall short of the best jerseys in professional sports history.

Just have to make it one more year. But hey, who’s counting?
