We've got something that looks like really good news: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may be getting ready to start wearing their throwback uniforms again. Texas A&M receiver Ricky Seals-Jones posted a picture of him and Mike Evans with a whole bunch of throwback Bucs helmets yesterday. Seals-Jones' account is set to private, but JoeBucsFan managed to get the picture.
It looks to me like he's in the process of signing them, which doesn't necessarily mean the Bucs are going to be donning them this year. I sure hope it does, though.
The Bucs introduced those throwback helmets along with throwback uniforms in 2009, and wore them for four years before the NFL introduced a new helmet rule that prevented them from wearing them that year, while the team did not bother to reintroduce them last year, when they got a full uniform makeover instead.
The throwback games were always some of the best in terms of atmosphere, and those throwback uniforms are a welcome change of pace, too. Hopefully, the team isn't just going to sell those helmets and they decide to wear them, too.
