The Vikings may be sporting a new logo and possibly a new uniform design in 2013.
A rumor started in late November of 2012 that the Vikings, Buccaneers, Dolphins and Jaguars were getting new logos.
The rumor originated from a post on SportsLogos.net that has since been deleted.
So what, some guy posted a rumor? Well…
The Jaguars went ahead and revealed their new logo on Wednesday, confirming at least a portion of the rumor. Jacksonville’s logo change is their first in the franchise’s 18-year history.
Lucky guess from the rumor starter? Maybe.
If you go to NFLShop.com, the official apparel site of the NFL, you’ll see that jerseys for the Vikings, Dolphins and Jaguars are discounted, while the rest of the team jerseys in the league are at regular price. That is three out of the four originally listed teams in the rumor that coincidentally have discounts.
There are rumors the Vikings are getting a simple uniform change, but not a new logo—and vice versa. It’s quite possible it could be both. We will find out soon.
Update: Dolphins CEO Mike Dee spoke a little bit about the new logo, saying it would be “a mix of modern and retro,” and navy would be an accent color.
