The Buccaneers unveiled their new uniforms Monday morning, and it appears they may be considering joining the Arena League.
In a Nike-developed redesign even more garish than last year’s Jaguars makeover, the Bucs lifted the curtain on a new ensemble that mixes chrome and orange highlights into the pewter-and-red mix of last year’s uniforms.
According to the team release, the new style is “a new design that honors the Buccaneers’ rich tradition while boldly bringing the team into the future through a modern industrial design aesthetic.”
If someone can find the crouton in that word salad for me, I’d appreciate it.
“Today marks the culmination of more than two years of research and planning to bring the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into a new and exciting era of our history,” Buccaneers co-chairman Edward Glazer said in a statement. “We worked closely with our partners at Nike to design a uniform that would set the standard for both design and functionality. The result is a sleek, modern design that honors our championship past while also establishing a new, bolder identity moving forward.”
The team also unveiled a secondary logo, “a powerful wooden ship fueled by wind-filled sails.”
Oddly enough, I thought that was diversity.
