The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will let Hall of Famer Warren Sapp reveal a redesigned logo and helmet on Thursday, the team announced.

The changes will be the first since the team swapped its winking Buccaneer logo and creamsicle orange color scheme for a red-and-pewter uniform with a skull-and-crossbones logo in 1997.

Sapp teased the announcement Tuesday on Twitter. The former Buccaneers star will unveil the changes during a segment on the NFL Network’s Total Access show on Thursday night.

Doing the announcement should help Warren Sapp come out of his shell.

Pewter helmet with great logo, red jersey, pewter pants : one of the best unis EVER in pro football. Why change that ? Please, Buccaneers, don't look to the Jaguars unis or the new Dolphins unis as a sign of improvement : it's not ! Or Floridian teams will be an aesthetic mess as they're a football mess...

The Bucs are still an NFL team? Did they ever get that virus out of their locker room? What a vulgar bunch of savages that team is. I bet they share needles too.

After the Superbowl the Bucs Pewtered out so I guess a new look is good.

Maybe its Bucco Bruce with a soccer ball in his mouth instead of the knife?

What a shame. The pewter design is great.


And please, less Warren Sapp. So over rated.

Sapp is going to introduce the logo? I don't think his resume stacks up. When you really measure him up, he comes up short of this honor.

Sort of wish these guys were still in our division, was fun beating 'em down 2 times each season.


Either way, the new uni's will be lame.

Reason most click on this post was in hopes TB elite had come to their marketing senses and finally decided to bring back what most fans want: Captain Winky & the Creamsicles (See: (mis-) lead photo).  But then the Nike® kids and new spokes-guy Warren Sapp had other ideas.  We'll see.  Whatever it be, I'll bet it looks angry.

@T-Ray yeah, its not the uniform that is a problem, but the product on the field.

I like the current gear.. too soon to change.. put a winner on the field and it will all pan out..

but I know why they did it... If Lovie can make us a winner again, then folks will go out and buy the new stuff even though the old is perfectly good.

@PackersFanNumeroUno  "Wow," similar sentiment held by Colin & Jimbo (SF) regarding your Packers, or as they might say, Swiss Cheese.  Oh well, just don't let Ted give anymore pay cuts to top defenders this off-season, for starters.


And don't ever say "Buccaneers" around Chad Clifton ('02).  Ouch.  He'll give ya' the stink-eye.

@PackersFanNumeroUno  Losers? You've got an avatar of a guy who texted his junk to a young girl while he was married. That's the definition of loser.

@PackersFanNumeroUno I can't help buy wonder how many Packers fans wish you'd change your name on here just so their team isn't associated with someone as stupid as you.

@PackersFanNumeroUno Funny how a Green Bay fan automatically goes to the word bum. I guess it's par for the course when your team is called the "Packers"

@David138 @PackersFanNumeroUno  David, Please don't judge all Packers fans based on our worst example.  I can assure you that  PackersFanNumeroUno is on his own island.

@PackersFanNumeroUno Jealous of what? You being a loser? You wanna make fun of the Buccaneers? How about the name "Packers"? That's not gay at all.
