Paul Lukas of Uni-Watch.com reported on Thursday that he was provided a preview of the Bucs’ newest uniform rendition by an industry source and Lukas, with the help of Nic Schultz, provided a mock up of what those uniforms could very well look like.

Lukas claims that he was unable to take pictures of the Bucs’ new uniforms, but was allowed to take detailed notes and that he confirmed the accuracy of the renderings below with his source prior to the report.

As noted by Lukas, the reported uniform changes mirror head coach Bruce Arians’ statements in Indianapolis that the Bucs’ new threads will bear a resemblance to those worn by Tampa Bay when they won the franchise’s lone Super Bowl in 2003, with some slight modifications.

The alleged changes include a removal of orange from the color scheme, an alteration of the pewter pants to fit the color of the Bucs’ helmet more accurately, a black facemask, a change of the Buccaneers namesake along the chest from white to black and the inclusion of the Bucs’ newer alternate pirate ship logo on the shoulders.

They said that it was going to be a mix of old and new… I don’t see any reference to the old? Looks almost like the Falcons. Hope this isn’t the final…

Huh??? So do our SB uni’s look like the Falcons to you?? If you say no then you are contradicting yourself. Because these are overall the same thing as our SB unis just modernized.

Without the orange on there, yes.

Falcons are getting new uniforms, so they might look even less like each other

Current helmet is great. Why changing the facemask? And I agree, it does look like the falcons.

I’m not mad that they are going back to the Super Bowl Unis just a little disappointed. I was hoping for more Orange to go with the Red as an accent color with White Helmets. Orange and Red is far more Unique than the Super Bowl Unis. I want to go forward with a fusion of the two main eras of the team but if we have to go back to something, the Super Bowl isn’t a bad way to go either.

Very good but I think the size of the numbers are a bit off. I understand this is an artists estimated guess of what they will look like.

As for the red a blood red would be more appropriate so it doesn’t look close to the Cardinal or Falcon unis.

I mean they look better, but I still plead they do the White Helmet and their Color Rush be Pewter Shirt and Pants which would look kick ass and then they can do Throw Back. That gives them all awesome options. No white helmet means no throw back for 5 more years. If that’s true then that’s a big mistake. Or… Get rid of the stupid one helmet rule. How dumb is that anyways? Are they worried there might be fake versions of the team trying to take the field or something?

Thank you Glazers for completely removing our identity by removing orange. You suck!

Agreed BS. 8 teams have red as their primary color. They’re better than the current uni, but not by much.

I like ’em. No need for an overhaul, just fine tune them. Have to say I would have liked to keep some orange in them, either outlining the numbers along with the black border or even something on the shoulders. Just fixing the numbers is a big improvement.

i like that they went with the old unis but why get rid of orange? it made us unique. they shoulda made them exactly the same shiny material and orange n all, very falcons like.

This is the most disappointed I’ve ever been with the Buccaneers. Uninspired and lazy.

Love it! I like the pirate ship back on the shoulders. So nice to see normal numbers and wow I missed the pewter pants. Pewter is our identity, not orange.

Don’t hate them but rather uninspired. They are essentially the exact same jersey as the Super Bowl era ones…without orange around the numbers. It feels lazy. Change the number font to something slightly more unique to the Bucs (just don’t go full alarm clock font) and the pant stripe a little bit and boom, you have a fresh, yet familiar take on an old classic. Simply reverting back to an even further dumbed down Super Bowl era uniform just feels like they overcompensated too much.

And honest to God, it was going to be difficult to disappoint me with these…but 5 years after going way too big and dramatic, they went wayy too small and safe. Don’t think it’s that difficult to find a middle ground.

When I saw this I was like “wait, that’s not the new unis, that’s a pic from 2002”. But overall I’m in favor of them. I get those disappointed in the thought that it’s basically getting old uniforms back. But it gets rid of the alarm clock numbers NOW! This gives them 5-7 more years to come up with a more dramatic change… so get it right, guys! I get those that miss the creamsicle. I think throwbacks are cool, but just for a game or two. (And yes, some will say these are basically throw backs, too. And to… Read more »

Looks like I’m gonna go a few more years without buying a jersey. So many ways this could have gone, I guess this was one of them. What a piss-poor attempt to appease the fan base.

The Glazer babies’ judgement is consistently poor. No imagination, plain and boring. Only reason they are better than the current uni’s is their first attempt completely sucked.

A rendering one person made via notes that someone else took – who supposedly saw a peak?

And the board is in an uproar? You guys kill me.

I think this looks pretty close to what everyone wanted. The rest of the details missing or that need adjusting I’m sure are there on the real deal Holyfield. Relax. The Glazers don’t want to hear more bitching for another 5 years.

They will be #fresh. Trust

So glad they are getting rid of the orange. It’s ugly and looks like crap. Sorry for those who like it but it looks horrible.

I’ll take anything different than the current unis but I swear I saw these on some sites drawings sent in by users.. With the number 20 and everything. Still it’s uninspired and a dumbed down super bowl version like whoever said above.. But it’s better than what we had if this is it! I have a feeling it’s not.

Also, what if the Glazers intentionally leaked one version to see reaction before they release what’s behind door number 2? Eh, eh?

Me, I just wish I’d known about a pending uniform change before buying a bunch of stuff at the end of season sale at the Bucs Store.

I’m pleased with whatever the team did to get back to uniforms that resemble the ones we all liked while holding up the trophy. I’m now convinced that no matter what the new uniforms looked like people would be more prone to criticize them. It’s just what Bucville fans do best………………we complain. I’ll reserve judgement until the big official reveal.

without knowing if these are legit or not i’ll hold back my opinion for now but …. how do you think a jersey would look if they used that Pewter color as the main color and worked off of that. Too much like the Saints?

They could go with white numbers with red and black outlines, white pants even the white helmet then allowing for throwbacks. for home/away just switch the jersey/pants combo from pewter top/white bottom to white top/pewter bottom.

there are NFL teams that are red, not one is pewter

Getting rid of the alarm clock numbers and the silly orange inserts is great. Can’t believe a bunch of old fart Bucs fans are pining for the bad old days of the silly creamsicle uniforms, the all time world’s worst football unis. The current unis are the all time second worst football unis. Going back to the look from the actual all time greatest era of franchise history may not be radical enough for some tastes, but it will sit fine with the vast majority of Bucs fans .. even if the commenters here at PR are all wet and… Read more »

I don’t mind the change only because we seemed to have a lot going on with the existing uniforms. I would have liked a white helmet for throwbacks for the folks who like the orange uniforms. I like pewter, but we could have used it as an accent color in the numbers and stripes. White helmets and pants. Add pewter accents to the stripes and numbers. Decrease the flag size on the helmet and add the same stripe from the pants to the helmet. Main colors: red and white… with black and pewter accents. But given the what the leak… Read more »

make the numbers sherbert orange or burnt orange, maybe both. pants need to match the helmet.
