MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (WSVN) — Photos of the Miami Dolphins' new uniforms surfaced on the Internet Tuesday, two days before the football team was hoping to unveil the designs.
Reaction from fans who saw the new designs, which were scheduled to be revealed on the same day as the beginning of this year's NFL draft, ranged from indifference to guarded approval. "They look OK," said a man after looking at the uniforms.
"These are the new uniforms?" asked another fan before adding, "Do they have new players?" and walked away.
The Dolphins have changed the look of their uniform several times throughout team history, but they were never drastic changes. One of the leaked photo shows two uniforms bearing what appear to be the two main colors: teal green and classic white.
The team's orange jerseys, a longtime fixture, appear to be gone. There is now a new patch on the shoulder displaying the new Dolphins logo.
Dan Marino appears to be on board with the new look. Shortly after the new logo was released he tweeted, "Saw the new @MiamiDolphins uniforms. Followed the development stage & now its great to see the finished product." He added the hashtags "#NewEraNewLook" and "13Approved."
The players who will likely wear the new uniforms have probably not tried them on yet. A busy week for the team also includes the draft on Thursday and the Second Annual Miami Dolphins Fin Fest this weekend.
