Ahead of Tom Brady’s first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the franchise unveiled new uniforms on Tuesday. Instead of an orange-clad scheme synonymous with the franchise’s early years, Brady and his new teammates will be outfitted with combinations of a deeper red, pewter and white. The red and pewter jerseys include pewter pants, while the white jerseys are paired with white pants. The all-pewter outfit will be the team’s Color Rush option.

Buccaneers owner and co-chairman Ed Glazer said: “This new but familiar look is a direct result of the valuable feedback we received from our fans. 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.”

The redesign is the franchise’s fourth major rebranding since its inception in 1976. Tampa Bay is the first NFL team to reveal a major uniform change this offseason. The Cleveland Browns are set to show off a new look later in April, with the Los Angeles Rams and Atlanta Falcons also to follow at some point later on.
