The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were prepared to face the wrath of fans if their new uniforms didn't live up the multi-month hype efforts. Well, the Bucs finally debuted the new threads on Tuesday, and most would agree that they passed the test. The trio of color arrangements includes the familiar red and black configuration, as well as a sweet all-white look, and an equally awesome all-black complexion. As splendid as the new reveal video was, there was one small problem: wide receiver Chris Godwin was still donning his old No. 12 jersey.
The Bucs' official Twitter account realized this moments after posting the clip and notified fans that the video was filmed before Godwin officially offered his No. 12 jersey to free agent acquisition Tom Brady. Other than that little wayward detail, this revelation was a huge success.
Seriously, though, how could any Buccaneers fan not love this new look?
Especially with Godwin rocking his new and correct number?
The Buccaneers last debuted new threads back in 2014, and the team failed to qualify for the postseason during that whole six-year run (they haven't made the playoffs since 2007). Perhaps the new attire will spark an era of winning in Tampa Bay.
With Brady under center, that's definitely in the realm of possibility.
