The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released a sneak peek at their new jerseys for the upcoming season, and sorry, but creamsicle isn’t going to happen.
In a hype video released Tuesday afternoon across social media, the organization showed off three new jersey options, which will come in white, red and pewter.
The video also shows wide receiver Chris Godwin wearing number 12, though the Bucs say the video was filmed before he agreed to allow Tom Brady to wear the number.
“This new but familiar look is a direct result of the valuable feedback we received from our fans," said Bucs co-owner Ed Glazer 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.”
So far, it seems the reaction to the new digs has been positive, at least on Twitter. However, a few fans have complained that they look a little too much like the Atlanta Falcons uniforms, and others saying they still want a throwback creamsicle option.
There’s always next season.
