Bucs show off 'intimidating' look
- [+] EnlargeCourtesy of Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay believes its new logo "sets the stage for our transition into this new, exciting era of Buccaneers football."
In addition to a new coach and a new general manager, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have a new look in 2014.
The team unveiled a new helmet and an enhanced logo Thursday night.
The pewter helmet features a chrome grill and a larger red flag than in the past. It also has a hand-painted shading technique using a darker pewter color that runs vertically from the front of the helmet to the crown and along the earholes. There also were slight alterations to the logo, which still features a skull, two swords and a football.
The Bucs kept some of the best aspects of their old helmet design but sadly lost a bit of the tattered pirate look, Paul Lukas writes. Story
The team also said it will reveal redesigned uniforms March 5.
"This is an exciting day for the entire Buccaneers organization as we begin the process of introducing our new look by revealing an enhanced logo and new helmet design," Buccaneers co-chairman Edward Glazer said. "The enhanced logo is much larger and portrays a more intimidating presence, while the chrome facemask is the first used by an NFL team. This is the first alteration to our logo and helmet since the previous re-design 17 years ago and we believe it sets the stage for our transition into this new, exciting era of Buccaneers football."
The Bucs have had the same helmets and logo since 1997.
