Buccaneers uniform changes won’t be drastic

The Bucs will take the field with a new coach and a new General Manager next year, and they’re getting a new look.

But it apparently won’t be the kind of dramatic makeover that coincided with the franchise’s greatest success.

While the team will unveil a new logo and helmet design Thursday, the changes to the team’s uniforms could be subtle.

According to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune, Bucs officials said “no drastic changes have been made” to the familiar red and pewter color scheme.

They’d take the kind of change on fortunes the last uniform change brought.

After retiring “Bucco Bruce” and the creamsicle uniforms for the 1997 season, the Bucs broke a streak of 14 straight losing seasons, and wore the red and pewter uniforms throughout the 2002 Super Bowl season, before their recent slide.
