“We’ll have cutting edge uniforms that link back to our history,” Scheiner said. “I don’t want to speak about the Bucs (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) uniforms, but I’m really excited about our direction.”
The Browns have been working in partnership with Nike to design the new look for the team. Nike became the league’s official uniform supplier for the 2012 season. The first team that they gave a complete redesign to was the Seattle Seahawks. The Dolphins underwent a uniform and logo overhaul last season.
Public opinion on the uniforms for both Seattle and Tampa Bay was quite mixed. Scheiner doesn’t think that will be an issue with Cleveland’s new look.
“I’d be very surprised if our fans didn’t love our new look uniforms,” Scheiner added. “I think we’re headed down a really cool path.”
Scheiner said that he expects the uniforms to be unveiled next year before the draft.
In other news, Joe Banner is already out of Berea. That is a quicker transition period than the Browns and specifically Jimmy Haslam said would take place back in February.
