Last month, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross mentioned that he is interested in changing the team’s logo and uniforms, perhaps as soon as the 2013 season.
As it turns out, the Dolphins are already well into discussions with the league about a fresh new look for next season. A source at league headquarters told the Post that the Dolphins and NFL have been trading emails for several weeks, with various mock-ups of a new Dolphins logo being designed and tweaked by the two sides.
Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said Thursday night that “it’s not 100 percent that we’re going to make a change,” but that the team has gotten feedback from the fans and is looking to “freshen up” the logo, which has been in its current form since 1997.
The Dolphins tweaked the original 1966 logo significantly in 1997 but kept many of the traditional elements, and Dee said the team is looking to do the same this time. The Dolphins have until November to submit a new logo to the league office for the 2013 season.
“We’re not talking about changing colors or taking the sun off the helmet. It’s not going to be like when Tampa Bay changed from orange to pewter gray,” he said. “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.”
