Tampa Bay Buccaneers to unveil new uniforms next week
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are beginning a new era, and they are coming out with new uniforms to represent it.
This will be a welcome change for Bucs fans, who were not all that enthralled with the club’s most recent threads:
“‘We have heard the feedback from our fans loud and clear, and have been working with the NFL and our league partners at Nike to usher in a new look as we enter the next decade of Buccaneers football,’ co-chairman Ed Glazer said in a statement confirming the eventual change in February. ‘We look forward to revealing more details in the near future about our official unveiling event, which will take place later this spring.'”
This was before the Buccaneers even signed Tom Brady, so this was something that was planned in advance. Of course, the addition of Brady makes this change even more appropriate.
Tampa Bay shocked the NFL world by landing Brady on a two-year deal in free agency last month. It marked the end of Brady’s 20-year run with the New England Patriots, a remarkable stretch in which he won six Super Bowl titles and established himself as the greatest quarterback to ever play the game.
The Bucs have not exactly experienced the same type of success. Since last winning the Super Bowl during the 2002-03 campaign, the Buccaneers have made the playoffs just twice. They have also not made a trip to the postseason in 12 years, representing the longest active drought in the NFC. Perhaps a new look — and their new quarterback — will help turn their fortunes around.
