The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are celebrating the start of the Tom Brady-era with some brand new uniforms.
On Tuesday, the team unveiled their new look, which frankly, looks oddly similar to their old uniforms.
Although there isn't a dramatic change in the uniforms, the colorways do hold some historical significance. The red, pewter, and white color scheme is meant to draw on the uniforms the team wore in 2002, when they won Super Bowl XXXVII. There's also an all-white uniform and an all-pewter uniform, that will be used as the team's Color Rush option.
Buccaneers owner and co-chairman Ed Glazer told USA Today that the fans helped inspire this new look.
"This new but familiar look is a direct result of the valuable feedback we received from our fans," 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."
As Glazer predicted, fans seem to like these uniforms better than the previous set, while also acknowledging that the change is minimal.
Some people pointed out that the team should've brought back its classic creamsicle jersey, just for the chance to see Brady don it next season.
