Outside of decisions needed to be made for Jameis Winston, Shaq Barrett, and a couple other important players, another topic that has weighed heavy on the mind of Bucs fans is whether or not they will get a new uniform this season.
Some fans have been vocal about getting new uniforms for the Bucs again, and on Wednesday, the Bucs sent out a video on their twitter account heavily teasing that they could very well be headed towards a change.
The video shows a man spray painting the Bucs pirate ship with a combination of the modern day red color mixed with their old school original creamsicle.

The Bucs’ last changed their uniforms in 2014 to mix reviews from the fanbase, and the NFL has a league rule that uniforms can only be changed every five years, meaning last season was the first in which the Bucs could have decided to make a change.
The teasing of a new uniform started a day before on Tuesday as the Bucs started commenting on fans social media who have were discussing a uniform change. Bucs’ fan Samer Ali, who has made many graphic designs on what new Bucs uniforms could look like and can be seen in Pewter Report’s story here, had another design posted on his facebook account Tuesday morning that the Bucs commented on with the eyeball emoji.

As Bucs fans started to get excited on social media, another Bucs fan and podcaster, EMT_Ashlie, tweeted at the Bucs asking to reveal new uniforms. The Bucs did not confirm or deny anything, but replied again with the eyeball emoji, meaning to look out for something. And a day later on Wednesday we got our answer.
