Over the summer, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and CEO Mike Dee said they were in talks with the NFL about updating the team's logo and uniforms for the 2013 season. Now a photo of a new logo that some believe will adorn Miami's helmets next season has gone viral.
According to DolfansNYC, the grainy photo above is a sketch of a logo that could be extremely close to the what the finished product will look like.
“I think it’s important to pay a lot of homage to tradition and heritage,” Ross told the Palm Beach Post back in June while addressing the next logo.
Dee said the new look wouldn't be a complete overhaul.
"We're not talking about changing colors or taking the sun off the helmet," Dee said. "It's not going to be like when Tampa Bay changed from orange to pewter gray. It's definitely keeping one eye on what's traditional in the logo intact, while keeping one eye on a 21st century version of that."
Will the logo above be that look? Only time will tell.
Here's a timeline of the evolution of the Dolphins logo so far:
