The Bengals tweeted on Thursday they will unveil new uniforms later this year. The new uniforms are expected to be revealed shortly before the NFL Draft in April. A video with the history of the Cincinnati uniforms accompanied the tweet on the Bengals official account. The iconic striped helmets will remain.
This will be the Bengals first uniform change since 2004. The process of creating new uniforms take a few years. NFL teams are allowed only one helmet and the prestige of the stripped helmets will keep them a part of the Cincinnati football franchise.
