MIAMI (CBS4) – In the hype surrounding the NFL Draft Thursday, the Miami Dolphins took the opportunity to unveil their new team uniforms.
Designed by Nike, the NFL Nike Elite 51 Uniform shows off the newly redesigned team logo, replacing the helmet wearing dolphin with a sleek rendering of the mascot.
According to pictures released by the team and Nike Thursday, the new uniforms are primarily white, with aqua and orange accents in a side panel on the pants and the word “Miami” written on the back of the jersey.
The fins’ new logo is prominently displayed on the jersey sleeves, as well as the helmet.
“As an athlete, you don’t want to worry about your uniform out on the field. It’s good that Nike thinks about the details so we don’t have to,” said Mike Wallace, Miami Dolphins wide receiver. “Look good, feel good, play good – that’s what it’s all about.”
