Earlier this year, the Cincinnati Bengals announced that the franchise would be getting a new look for the first time in 17 years, the first update in the uniform since 2004.
And now, it looks as though we have an idea of what the new uniforms will look like.
A viral image from an eBay post appears to have revealed the new design that the team said wouldn’t officially be released during the month of March:

Despite the upcoming new look, in a statement earlier this year, team owner Mike Brown said that the team’s iconic tiger striped helmet would not be changing.
“My father [Paul Brown] said he wanted a helmet that would take just one look to recognize us from the top seat in the stadium,” Mike Brown said, via the Bengals official website. “I think our helmet has stood the test of time. It has established our identity, our trademark, if you will, and that’s important to our fans.”
Several teams changed up their look prior to the 2020 NFL season, and now the Bengals are getting in on the fun.
What do you think of this alleged new look?
