The new uniforms of the Cincinnati Bengals are nothing like the ones worn by the Kansas City Chiefs in the first half of last season, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
The uniform change was announced Tuesday during a ceremony at FedExField in Maryland.
The team also announced that players will be allowed to wear new helmets with their jerseys for the first time.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter was at the ceremony and said he saw several Bengals players wearing helmets with a large, flat-sided logo on the side.
Schefter said the logo was not the one seen on the Chiefs uniforms.
“It’s a little weird,” he said.
“There are a lot of things that are off, and you can see that on the Bengals’ uniforms.”
“But when I saw it on the team’s helmets, it was a little bit different,” Schefter added.
“So we’ll see what happens.”
The logos on the new uniforms were originally designed for the New York Giants, but the NFL later changed its mind and decided to use a smaller logo on them.
This new look also doesn’t feature the traditional logo.
“The logo is the same,” Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said in a press conference on Wednesday.
“I don’t think anybody would disagree with that.”
Schefter did say that the team may have used a logo that looked similar to the logo worn by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell when he was the New England Patriots’ coach.
The logo was created by an art company in New York that has designs for NFL logos and other products.
The Bengals did not immediately respond to a request for comment from ESPN.
The new jerseys also include a lot more white on the shoulders and sleeves.
They’re also a little more uniform-like than the jerseys worn by Kansas City.
The players who were seen wearing the new jerseys were on the field for only three plays, including the first and second quarter, according, in a tweet from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
The other three plays that were shown on the replay cameras, which are usually reserved for special teams plays, were the first quarter, second quarter and third quarter.
