Not sure if it's been mentioned - or if it even means a damn thing - but the player/team marketing around the stadium is basically all restricted to the brown color rush uniforms from last year and a white version.

Not a surprise, all there marketing has been with the color rush uniforms.

I think that has less to do with a sneak peek at their next uniform, as it does the fact that the Color Rush set is hated less than the rest of their current uniforms.

Perhaps someone that has a better understanding of the NFL uniform rules could help me, but would it be possible for the Browns to make their orange jersey the "primary" for this season? We know the brown color rush will be worn as the alternate as many times as they're allowed (3 times?) but the regular brown jersey is just dreadful. The orange jersey I can stomach much easier.

They’d have needed nfl’s approval prior to the season. They didn’t try to only wanting the color rush so this is what we’ll get.

Yeah it's a two-season timeline to change primary designations.  The Broncos' request to change from navy to orange took forever.

They haven't worn these on field since 2015. But the funny thing is that when Browns players make public appearances they always wear the orange jersey.

Well, sure.  The team wants to get some use out of them. 😛

We definitely wore them in 2016, but just once I think. Jamar Taylor shown below was only with the team 2016 and 2017. But either way, yeah we haven't touched them in a while.

Did Syracuse completely redo their uniform again?

Why are the Browns so afraid of an orange alternate? They always seem to introduce it, wear it a few times, then ditch it. Even during the Otto Graham days, they apparently wore orange during preseason only. I personally think it's a great look.

In 2017 they went all-white just about every game and in 2018 they wore the Color Rush 3x. I'm sure most would rather see color rush used instead of orange. If the 3x alternate rule wasn't in place I guarantee we would have seen it last year and we would see it this year. 

 

Like others have suggested, make orange the primary and wear it at home for 5 games and that will still give them 3 color rush games.

Theoretically...could the Browns wear an orange helmet with brown mask for 14 games, and then wear a gray mask for a game and a white mask for a game, just for more looks?

 

The Jets, Bills, and Chargers have played around with facemask colors in recent years...

I think part of the problem is that these uniform designs can rarely ever be simple anymore.  Nike's redefinition of athletic aesthetic explicitly prioritizes 'statement' over all else.  This simply can't be a mere sharp uniform - it has to be a movement-inspiring look, a densely-layered journey through a top-to-bottom reimagining.  Nothing can be overlooked.

 

Which is fine for a more eclectic team like the Seahawks or some college teams, but the Browns are not, and cannot be a petri dish for a board of designers looking to break the mold. 

Stop trying to turn a peanut butter and jelly sandwich into grape compote and legume emulsion between two crustinis.

It’s the Browns that are responsible for what they wear, not Nike. Take the lion out of the cage and it’s going to eat the wildebeest.

There’s enough blame to go around.  

 

The Browns deserve plenty for signing off on that mess. Nike deserves plenty for pushing it in the first place.

This is an example of excessive piping:
