When the Buccaneers acknowledged that a new helmet and logo will be introduced, some (or at least one . . . and you know who you are) hoped that Bucco Bruce would be making a return, in some form or fashion.
Bucco Bruce won’t be back.
The Bucs have unveiled a slightly revised logo that takes up a much greater piece of real estate on a darker helmet, with a chrome face mask.
“This is an exciting day for the entire Buccaneers organization as we begin the process of introducing our new look by revealing an enhanced logo and new helmet design,” Buccaneers co-chairman Edward Glazer said in a team-issued release. “The enhanced logo is much larger and portrays a more intimidating presence, while the chrome facemask is the first used by an NFL team. This is the first alteration to our logo and helmet since the previous redesign 17 years ago and we believe it sets the stage for our transition into this new, exciting era of Buccaneers football.”
The new uniform that goes with the new helmet and new logo will be unveiled on March 5. We’ve got a feeling that the full ensemble will make Bucco Bruce pee a little.
