After 17 years, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have decided it's time for a change. Former Bucs defensive lineman and NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp announced on Twitter that he'll be unveiling a new Tampa Bay helmet and a logo this week. The team confirmed that Sapp's not making this up and that the new look will be unveiled at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday on NFL Network.
It's not clear what the new helmet will look like, but Sapp did offer one detail.

The helmet and logo change will mark the first time the Buccaneers have modified their look since 1997 when the team dropped the Creamsicle helmets below and went to the red, pewter and black helmets pictured above.
