NFL Tinted Series (Saints and Bears added)

So in the 2022 NFL changes thread, @CDCLT has been vocal about thinking it should have been the Browns who tried an off-white road jersey, not the Rams.  Dude's got a point.  I think there are at least a couple teams bone would work for...neither of them are the Rams.  This isn't the first time I've made cream football concepts, but it's admittedly been a minute...so I give you the Browns in not only cream road jerseys but with cream stripes and numbers on the brown jerseys.  I figure one thing, if this turns into a series, I'm probably not doing the whole league...there are some teams where something like this frankly wouldn't work.  For the most part, I'm likely mostly gonna post off-white jerseys here, as during the thought experiment phase, there emerged more than a few teams I thought could pull off at least two off-white shades.  There are also a few shades I'm thinking of that would actually not be based on team colors, but might end up working in a strange way anyway.

In my mind's eye, I'm seeing several ways I can do this with some teams, and at that more than a few unexpected directions, some teams I might skip, some throwback versions I might sneak in, and I finally realized why I hate the Mariners' fauxbacks: the shade I'll call MLB cream is too yellowish to work with royal/yellow gold effectively (and would look horrible with their regular colors if they were ever dumb enough to go down that road).  Something more blueish would have been a much better choice.  As an example, I'll likely use the cream shade from the Browns set for the Bears, but it would look awful on the Cowboys.

This all said, thanks so far, Saints and Bears likely coming up later tonight.

Saints throwback/color rush...on top is a gold tint, on the bottom is one of the "not a team color" shades I mentioned, a mint green tint...why green?  Mardi Gras, and a purple tint might look too much like what I intend to do with the Ravens.

I debated with myself on whether I should skip this next team or not, and curiosity won out, so here go the Steelers.  The tints used here are both intended to hint at steel in a couple disparate states...on top, a warm, molten tint...granted, actually trying to capture the distinct hues of molten steel would probably require a gradient, thus the talking up of a standard, yellow-orangish cream (though not as completely orange as the Bears version); on the bottom, a blue-gray tint, steel in its cooled, ready to build state, if you will.  Oddly enough, I like the warm cream here a lot more than I thought I would, mostly because gold doesn't get as lost here as it has a maddening tendency to when paired with warm cream shades.

I prefer the gray one here, just really gives that steel vibe
