"You know how they are about sticking to tradition, so this is going to be a new tradition I feel like." Nike designed the uniforms, which feature black stripes on the shoulder pads and hips and the orange and black "B" on the chest.
"That would be pretty dope, too," Dunlap said.
But if the orange was white on this helmet, that would probably really set it off.
It's nothing to take away from it." The NFL does not allow players to have more than one helmet for safety reasons, and the team's orange-based helmet has to be shipped to the manufacturer to have the black stripes painted on in the offseason -- in other words, it would be logistically impossible for the helmets to be repainted.
