Buccaneers unveil their new uniforms

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Buccaneers have unveiled the uniforms that Tom Brady will wear in his first season as the team’s quarterback and anyone hoping to see a return to the Creamsicle days is going to be disappointed.

The team’s new uniforms bear a strong resemblance to the ones they wore from 1997 until they moved to their most recent look after the 2013 season. The font for the jersey numbers will revert to the previous style as will the red jersey for home games. The team also added a pewter third uniform that’s reminiscent of the color that was introduced into the team’s look in 2014.

“This new but familiar look is a direct result of the valuable feedback we received from our fans,” Buccaneers owner/co-chairman Ed Glazer said in a statement. “We are excited to return to our classic Super Bowl era uniforms while also introducing a sleek Color Rush uniform that showcases our signature pewter in a new and dramatic way. The refreshed classic design of our home and away combinations bridges our past with our exciting new future, and we are confident it will resonate with our fans.”

In the release from the team, they note that they’ve heard from fans who wanted to see the team revert to their original orange-and-white look. Head coach Bruce Arians recently suggested using those throwbacks as a possibility for 2021 if the league allows teams to wear multiple helmets in a season and the team said the same in their release.

  1. They did correct their mistake with the horrible looking numbers. I was hoping they would shrink the flag on the helmet. Overall, I give Tampa Bay a “B”. It was an upgrade, but not earth shattering.

  2. As a Bucs fan they are perfect. Exactly what I was hoping for. And the Pewter color rush is sick!

  3. I’m good with it. Glad that they kept the orange trim and the leaked ones were not totally accurate. VERY glad that the alarm clock numbers numbers are gone. Good job and can’t wait until that dumb second helmet rule is done away with so that we can bring back Bucco Bruce.

  4. When uniwatch unveiled what they said were the new uniforms, I was disappointed.

    These are great! Well done!

  5. All things considerated, it was smart to go back to the SUPER BOWL era uniforms. The color rush looks good…more GREY than that awful brown tone they called pewter. ** Hopefully they can wear a full 1976 throwback uniform next year if they allow two colored helemts. A grade

  6. Without a helmet on the white uniform you wouldn’t know if it was a Buc or a Bird (Atlanta)

  7. I’m sure the fans cant wait until Sept 2021 for the real unveiling in an actual game that counts…

  8. I like them. In 2013 I thought the old uniforms got tired and needed a refresh, but they went wacky with them. THIS is the refresh I wanted in 2013, finally.

    I think this look is getting close to ‘classic’. A uniform like the Bears, Cowboys, Steelers, Packers, etc. that doesn’t need to change anymore.

  9. Simple, classy. Why other teams struggle befuddles me. EG. Seattle, Carolina, Jets, LA new logo, Cincy, Cleveland.

  10. They pretty much just got rid of the bad numbers. And fix the helmet the stupid huge flag, it looks horrible.

  11. Better than Jacksonville and Seattle

    Oh Please, Seattle’s unis are awesome and you know it.

  12. There’s still zero orange. Seems like Bucs fans like them. That’s good, since they’re the only ones whose opinions matter. I personally don’t see a difference or improvement. Might as well just switch to “pewter” (I thought it was some kind of gold) as their main color. Because right now they just look like the Falcons. Should have replaced the red with the creamsicle orange.

  13. Some of you guys, are funny. It’s not a matter of opinion with some of you, its the fact that some of you couldnt be any more blind, dumb or both. This is absolutely nothing like their most recent unis. Not even close

  14. The only thing better is the numbers! Those digital clocks numbers truly sucked. Overall the uniforms are about the same. I wasn’t a uniform fan then, and I’m not now. There are many NFL uniforms that are far better. I realize the Glazner family are originally from Ohio and were big Ohio State fans, and probably wanted to model the Bucs uniforms after Ohio State. I’m not a fan of Ohio State’s uniforms either.

    I get it. I don’t have to like it. I don’t own the team.

    Overall, I’m disappointed. A lot of fan fare for so little change!

  15. Brady in a Creamsicle uniform would be awesome!
    The helmet flag is way too big. Shrink it down. Other wise its’ O.K…Improvement over the last ones.

  16. The numbers are certainly better, but the big mistake was the hideous logo on the helmet, surpassing even the putrid and hilariously awkward Raven logo for Baltimore. Their numbers are tacky, too.

    Improvement, though. Would have looked way cooler with the originals making a comeback. Funny how these Marketing morons can’t get out of their own way.

  17. Way better. I wonder if they could pull off a matte helmet though, would be interesting to see.

  18. Well pleased with the new look!
    Now just shrink the logo on the helmet so it doesn’t look cartoon-like…

  19. The Pewter Color Rush combo is looking pretty cool, not a Bucs fan but I do like these new jerseys… enjoy TB!

  20. much better, however easy to improve upon the worst uniforms ever. Logo on the helmet is still too big, think the original buccaneer logo on the helmet would look better.

  21. Oddly, not a white player in the picture. Now if this had been an all white player display of the new uniforms, the color police would be all over this.

  22. The red and white ones are exactly the same as 20 years ago. They could have tweaked those a little.

    Love the pewter ones.

  23. I tell you what’s puzzling/troubling. It’s Florio’s take on Brady in the video. I think it’s a pretty big jump to assume TB12 thinks COVID doesn’t apply to him, or he leads a charmed life or it’s not impacting his off-season. A lot of NFL guys just put their head down and move forward, focused on what they control, not what they don’t. And they don’t spend a lot of time explaining or discussing their FEELINGS. They are just very task/goal oriented. TB12 was explaining on how he’s integrating with the Buc’s and he kept the message directed accordingly. Please stop trying to make it something it’s not or never was intended to be.

  24. The flag is way too big, looks like something a seafood restaurant would have on the kid’s menu.

  25. Fans are so naive. The reason teams change their uniforms is all about money. They want you to buy new ones!!!!!!!!! You buy these, you’re just putting more money in their pockets.

  26. Keep the helmet but wear the Creamsicles as an alternate uniform.

    Kind of like how the Broncos did it with their alternates.

  27. Got rid of the terrible font on the numbers! The biggest improvment. Now the Titans need to get rid of their font! The color rush looks great and I hate color rusg uniforms, the home red also looks good. The all white (road I guess) I don’t like, they need color pants to go with the white shirt.

  28. Glad the Falcons are coming out with new uniforms next week, as the Bucs just plagiarized their current ones.

  29. You all don’t get it. Teams are all about money. Yeah Cowboys, Packers, Raiders can’t change too much history and loyalty, big brands no matter what their record is. People buy and buy. But if youre not a big brand franchise after a while you have a dip in merchandise sales. So what they do is, go ugly and make a bunch of many, fans complain, finally they reveal new ones that are a homage to the past and womp, they make more money. Watch the Rams will do this, people will buy the new crap, they will make tons of money, people will complain and in 4/5 years they will fix it, making more money. I feel the Titans are in the middle of this cycle as is Seattle.

  30. I like them, but they need to get rid of the over-sized helmet logo. This isn’t college!

    And they do need some colored pants to occasionally wear with the white jerseys. Red pants might look good.

  31. Good move but the helmet could have benefited with losing that gigantic flag with a updated Bucco Bruce logo sans the wink.

  32. Too bad it’s looking more and more like we won’t have football this year.

  33. All I see is an unrelated video. Maybe post pictures and do away with the autoplay videos!!

  34. Ummm, is there a difference? Look like the same ugly ones they’ve had all along. They should really go back to the 80’s version. Those were much cooler.

  35. Looks great can’t wait to see them crush that weak NFC division which includes spaghetti arm Brees

  36. look the same to me. But that may be due to the fact the Buccaneers really haven’t given me much of a reason to pay attention to them over the past 15 years.

  37. This is great. We all know the reason they’re 157 games under .500 all time is because of the uniforms!

  38. You people are insane! A basic picture of Blackbeard on the helmet and scull or two on the uniform is what would be most effective and last the ages! It’s a franchise named for PIRATES! Let’s just put the most heinous one out there once and for all and stop trying to be cute about it!

    These are high-school kids deciding on what college team logo is “cool’. It’s the big league! You’re drafted or go there for the money! It’s a pirate franchise and let’s get on with it!

  39. Much better. Now Seattle and Denver can go back to slugging it out for the honor of having the ugliest unis in the NFL.

  40. I wonder what Bucco Bruce decal would look on a pewter helmet and the throwback uniforms. It might work…..they wont let us have a white helmet so……..

  41. Given how often teams change uniforms these days it’s a wonder anyone cares…but I will say that these do look like almost exactly like the Falcons’ uniforms. The black is just a shade browner. In a division where all other teams have black as a part of their uniforms, I wonder why Tampa decided to try and do a version of it themselves? Black is cool, yes, but when every team has it, it loses its attractiveness. As of now, these uniforms look like Atlanta’s, but with a murkier brown in place of black.

    I thought the pewter was unique; only Washington’s throwbacks and the 9ers’ resembled that color in any capacity. It was uniquely Tampa, combined with their other colors. As poorly received as the previous uniforms were, you did know that it was distinctly Tampa who was playing. Really, though, it’s Bucs’ fans’ opinions who really matter, and if they like the uniforms, then that’s what matters.

  42. To everyone saying they look like Atlanta, this is basically the look they won the Super Bowl in, the look they adopted in 1997 when Atlanta was wearing solid black.. 🤷🏼‍♂️

  43. Please Miami…dump the worst Logo and colors in the league! Follow Tampa’s lead…listen to the fans and go back to the throwback look. I’m tired of puking every time I watch a game!

    Not anymore, the new Falcons unis got leaked on FaceBook and they are trash XD It’s worse than XFL quality, it’s like Arena League quality XD

  45. The Bucs did not copy the Falcons uniforms. The Bucs had the Pewter and red long before the Falcons had their current ones…and btw, Falcons have red, white and black uniforms.

    Bucs had the white and red first.

  46. If the Buccaneers want to really improve their uniforms, they should put Errol Flynn on their helmets. He was the best Buccaneer of all time!!

  47. So much better. The last ones were an embarrassment. These look good enough to make me wonder if they’ve fired Nike.

  48. Definitely a big improvement over recent editions. Now it looks like a respectable, cohesive uniform instead of a train-wreck novelty. Still a little drab overall – like a blander version of the 49ers – but probably the next-best thing to the creamsicle color scheme (which is of course what they should have done).

    I’m not a follower of the team but hope we get to see them, with Brady, in action this year. Would be a great shakeup.

  49. The helmet with the huge logo sucks. It looks absurd. Why not have the original logo in the red and pewter colors?

  50. I don’t understand how all these clowns can claim the Bucs “copied” the falcons. They simply went back to updated versions of their super bowl era uniforms, which they debuted in 1997, a full 6 years BEFORE the falcons switched from their black uniforms to they’re current unis. If anything, the falcons copied the bucs.

  51. Amazing what changing from those hideous numbers did for the uniforms, that by itself would have been a 100% improvement!

    Finally got rid of that garbage. Maybe we get another championship with these.
