Having worn white-on-white for all 16 contests in 2011, the Cleveland Browns will revert back to typical gridiron style and look to bring back the brown version of their uniform for the 2012 season.
ESPNCleveland’s Tony Grossi reports that Browns head coach Pat Shurmur hinted toward the team wearing their brown counterparts for at least four of the team’s eight regular season home games for the upcoming year. Last season, the team chose to honor the Paul Brown era by wearing white at home. With their opponents choosing their dark jerseys on the road, the Browns were relegated to the white uniform for the entire season, drawing the ire of some of their fan base following a 4-12 season.
Browns president Mike Holmgren sounded suprised when this issue was addressed during his media circuit last week. It appears that, with the fans speaking, the team is listening.
