The Bengals announced Thursday they will wear new uniforms beginning in the 2021 season.

They will unveil the new unis sometime this spring.

The Bengals haven’t undergone a major change since adding stripes before the 1981 season. They have had a handful of tweaks since, including color scheme changes.

The Bengals are not changing their helmets, Jeremy Rauch of FOX 19 reports.

Bengals fans likely don’t care what their team wears as long as they win. Cincinnati has not won a playoff game since 1990 against the Houston Oilers.

  1. Pair the iconic helmets with a much simpler jersey. .

    The simpler color rush version is better, and actually their practice jerseys — simpler still — look even better next to the striped helmets.

  2. I’m not a Bengals Fan. But DONT mess with the Helmets.

    I know it was mentioned in the piece they won’t. But again DONT!

  3. Focus on making over that O-line and worry about the cosmetic stuff later. Let quality be your beacon. New uni’s won’t protect our boy JB.

  4. They’ve been wearing that monstrosity of a helmet (and uni) for FORTY YEARS. My gosh I’m old.

  5. Lipstick on a pig until Mike Brown enters the new millennium and transforms his way of doing things, steps aside, or sells.

  6. The Bengals unis are god awful! But, being the Bengals, I’m sure they will make them worse. Especially if Nike has anything to do with it.

  7. Thank god, those jerseys are not great, please don’t do a Rams or a Bucs (Winston era) redesign, keep it sharp and simple.

  8. I would love to see them use a different helmet when they wear the “color rush” jerseys. A white tiger-stripe look instead of orange. Not sure why they went with black and white uniforms for color rush – that’s kinda backwards.

    Your right about the color rush jerseys but they look so cool we will let it slide lol

  10. Regarding the helmets, I personally find things like animal stripes cheesy or maybe even childish. Same goes for the horns on the rams helmets. I’m shocked most folks seem to like this design. But hey, I’m not the fashion police so have at it if they keep it that way.
