This! Lukas had the concept made based on his description, which doesn't means he saw every detail, just that it's accurate of what his eyes saw. There very well could be an orange trim that got unnoticed, or was too hard too see for him. 

For real, I would't take any uniform mockups based on another person's memory as gospel. I remember everybody panicking online because somebody who got a sneak peak of the Dolphins (at-one-point) new uniforms was mistaking the number outline as black instead of navy.

Joe switched from 16 to 19 upon going to KC. Maybe Tom will do something similar.

When Joe got to KC 16 was already retired for a Hall of Fame and Super Bowl winning QB in Len Dawson. A little different situation.

Would look pretty similar to this I'd guess

That's a professional uniform - one that I could see an old vet like Brady wearing.

I can't see Brady wearing any number other than 12. Considering he legitimately built an entire brand on it (TB12). 

 

He'll do what he has to to get it. Wouldn't be shocked if it was something that came up in negotiations with him.  

 

Athletes building brands around their numbers is not only lazy, but ridiculously stupid, since most of them switch teams every few years, which results in either battles over numbers, or switches altogether.

I don't have any skin in this game, but I always thought the creamsicles, and Bucco Bruce were a great look, and I would hope that going forward, the new uniforms do include orange. I think it's a part of the Bucs' dna.

 

I guess I would ask of diehards, and Tampa-area folks this question: Of those who favor the original look, is it the entire look? Is it Bucco?, or is it just the color itself? I'm just curious.

 

I think a red, pewter, and orange uniform would be just fine, but I would be thrilled as a logo enthusiast to see Bruce back on that uniform somehow, some way. Helmet, sleeve, pants, doesn't matter. They wouldn't have to go full-Donald Igwebuike to tie it all together for me:). Just my humble opinion:)

I think the brand is strong enough that he could switch back to his college #10 and leave TB12 as-is.  He's only going to play 2, 3 years max...he'll always been known for #12 in New England and his brand won't take a hit because he wears #10 for 2 years.

The ability to wear 12 in TB for TB12 is just too good though.

Blatantly photoshopped, but *shrug*.

It’s ok and sensible when you’re Tom Brady and can get whatever number you want. 

 

As for Joe Montana, I believe Len Dawson gave him permission to wear 16 in KC. Montana chose not to.

Would Seattle let him wear 12?  Buffalo?  Philadelphia (even though it's not technically retired)?

Needs orange, otherwise it looks like a potential Falcons alternate.

Also needs for the TV numbers to match the actual jersey number.

I live in Rochester, and the Bills are the "local" team here. Obviously we're talking purely hypothetical, but if Brady had come to Buffalo, there's no way he'd be allowed to wear 12. Jim Kelly is like royalty here - they wouldn't "un-retire" his number for anyone, let alone Brady (who's been a sworn enemy for almost 20 years). Now, Kelly is a stand-up guy, and is gracious enough that he'd probably allow it, but the fans would never stand for it.

Well yeah, but I kinda swept that under the rug when I read it was blatantly photoshopped.

I think that if you even ask someone to unretire their number, then you're a scumbag.  It's the highest honor a team can give someone, and you want to take it away?  That kid in Washington can eat crap for asking Thiesman to wear his number.  Montana did it right, by taking 19 rather than 16 when he went to KC since it was retired for Len Dawson.

 

Number retirement starts to lose any meaning when it becomes just a temporary thing.  Honestly, what teams may want to consider doing, is rather than 'retiring' the number, taking it out of circulation for 10 years or so.  You're still honoring the guy by ensuring that nobody in the current generation of players will ever wear his numbers, since by 10 years, there should be full turnover.

 

IIRC, the guy in Denver volunteered his 18 to Manning, right?
