With Tom Brady gone, and a Swiss cheese roster in the works, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers front office knows it needs to do something to get fans excited for next season, so naturally it's bringing back Bucco Bruce and the "creamsicle" uniforms.

The orange and white jerseys will make their official return for Throwback Games during the 2023 season,  said the organization this morning.

This will mark the first time in over a decade throwback uniforms will be allowed, since a 2013 rule change limited teams to just using one helmet for each season. However the league nixed the rule last year, but because of supplying issues, fans won't see the new digs until next season.

"Due to global supply chain challenges, we will have to wait one more year than hoped." said the team via the website. "This is the earliest that Nike can finish production of the orange uniforms."

The team's previous Throwback Games, which ran from 2009-2013, were a popular fixture with fans, and involved Raymond James getting a complete makeover with orange and white colors.
