The above link is to a thread on a uniform message board I'm apart of regarding possible logo/uniform changes for NFL teams next year. One of the posters apparently has inside info as to logo/identity packages for all 32 NFL teams. He (or she) said that all teams have given the go-ahead for Nike to start designing next year's apparel, except four. Three of the teams are Miami, Minnesota, and Jacksonville, all of which have either confirmed or have rumors concerning logo/uniform changes for next year. The poster also said that the two teams who delayed in giving the go-ahead for apparel designs last year were Seattle and Carolina, who ended up having new uniforms and logos, respectively.
The surprise fourth team is the Bucs. In the subsequent posts, the poster tries to calm people by saying that it could just mean a minor change (logo tweak, making the ship logo the primary, etc.), but he doesn't say that the delay could be totally unrelated to a possible change.
Though I think we have one of the best logo and uniform sets in the league, it is 16 years old with absolutely no change whatsoever. Even teams with undoubtedly classic designs have gone through slight tweaks here and there. It also doesn't surprise me all that much, considering it seems as if the Glazers have been really trying to get the idea of a "New era in Tampa Bay" (my term, as far as I know) across to fans. Don't get your hopes up too much, but this still is an interesting talking point.
Btw: The link should take you to the point in the thread where the Bucs are first being discussed.
