Bucs Getting A New HelmetFebruary 18th, 2014
Bucs Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp has been dropping hints that there is big Bucs news coming this week. The news has arrived: the Bucs are getting a new helmet with a new twist to their logo.
It’s all spelled out at Buccaneers.com. But you’ll have to watch NFL Network on Thursday at 8 p.m. for the unveiling.
Gerald McCoy will join Sapp for the big moment.
Sapp let the helmet out of the bag, so to speak, this morning on Twitter.

New helmet? Hhhmmm… Joe’s not sure what is wrong with the old helmet. But, OK, fine.
Just don’t mess with the uniforms. Those are sharp. And for God’s sake don’t f’ around with anything black. The pewter pants and red/white jerseys looked sharp.
Joe has mixed feelings about this. Teams that always monkey with their uniforms (look up the definition of “uniform.” It doesn’t mean “costume.”) have garbage uniforms. Panthers and Jags spring to mind. The teams with classic uniforms (Packers, Steelers, Cowboys, Raiders, Giants) never mess with their uniforms because they don’t have to. They are classics. The Bucs had that.
No word (yet) on a uniform redesign.
