After years of bad teams and bad uniforms, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are switching up their uniforms.
The club's long-awaited new uniforms were finally released Tuesday, and we say new gingerly. Because these kits look awfully familiar.
Astute viewers will recognize these uniforms as throwbacks to the Mike Alstott era, and that's perfectly okay. The Bucs were good when they wore pewter and regularly-shaped number fonts, so now they're wearing pewter everywhere.
It's the first NFL uniform change in a long time that's not an immediate, obvious downgrade, and because of that's it's a clear upgrade.
