Denver Broncos getting new uniforms, logo?

A rumor has been making the rounds on the Internet that the Denver Broncos could be getting a complete uniform redesign in the next couple of years. According to the buzz, Nike wants to take full control over the uniform design and come up with a new color scheme and logo for the team.

This would mean that the Broncos would no longer use orange as their primary color.

Considering the team is now 0-4 in Super Bowls while wearing orange jerseys, this could be a welcomed move by the players and fan base.

The rumor surfaced on the Broncos subreddit:

One of my very good friends and fraternity brothers works for a company called Hydrographics Inc. HGI works in conjunction with many sports outfitters (especially Nike) and is the leading company in helmet design in this nation. … I called up my buddy and asked him if there was any truth to the rumors. Here’s what he had to say:

Yes, (Broncos) are getting new uniforms

This has been in the making since Nike took over

Until this past Sunday’s events, Orange was to be the primary

Orange is no longer the primary as of Monday morning and Nike has been green lit to test a new color scheme

The Uniforms have a deadline of the 2015 Draft

This is the longest uniform project Nike has ever undertaken, and just like in 97 the Broncos will be given a template completely unique to them, not even Oregon will have this template for a couple years

A new logo is in the works

Phil Knight wants the Broncos to become the Oregon of the NFL. The team holds a special place in his heart as the first football team to let Nike have complete control over a design.

What do you think, FanSiders? Would you like to see a team become the “Oregon of the NFL” and how would you feel about the Broncos changing up their color scheme and logo? Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts.

    Keep the Orange.
    They did not look good in Navy Blue nor win many SB in those either.
    Nor have they ever looked good with that stupid tail that runs down each thigh.

    Get a QB who doesn’t choke in cold weather and in big games.

    Retro the Broncos to the Orange Crush unis and the Blue “D – Bronco” helmet they wore until the reinvented themselves the last time around.

    If they do chuck 50 years of tradition … Stay away from Brown or they will be known as the only Brown-cows that lay eggs when challenged during the big one.

      haha what? the Broncos won their 2 Super Bowls in the Blue and lost all 4 in the Orange

      • Buddy Rogers

        How did they wear blue jersey’s 2 years in a row?

        • Trinidad Lame$

          idk im almost sure both of them were blue unless one was white

        • Max Dales

          They wore blue in Super Bowl XXXII and beat the Packers. This was also the first year they ever wore the current logo and redesigned uniforms. In Super Bowl XXXIII the wore the white version that they still currently wear of the redesigned uniforms and beat the Falcons. These are their only Super Bowl wins in our history. The other 4 Super Bowl losses all came in the orange jerseys, both old and new versions. Click here for the visual evidence;
          Oddly enough the original design of the new uniforms called for blue pants with orange stripes to be worn with the blue jersey. Most of the team liked this but John Elway hated them, thus they were rarely worn this way till Elway retired.
          The current version of the orange uniform was not introduced until 2002 and also were rarely used because Mike Shannahan hated these versions of the jersey. They were only used one other time in 2008 and then Shannahan was fired. After his ouster they brought the Orange back twice a season till ultimately deciding to make the switch full time to the orange.
          In summation; orange = bad juju for the Broncos. Don’t change anything other than brining back the blue jerseys as the main jersey and orange only to be worn once or twice a season for old times sake. Keep the logo and everything else.

          • Buddy Rogers

            There are many teams that would gladly switch records with the Orange clad Denver Broncos.

            AS I recall in this last SB and in their 1st in the 1970s they just got smoked by a better team. They would have gotten smoked regardless of what they were wearing.
            Maybe if they didn’t have the ancient Craig Morton or a notorious choker in in BIG games/Cold BIG games under Center their fate in those games would have been different.

          • Buddy Rogers

            As we wait for your rant below to clear the censor I am only left to wonder… Are you finished being a total schmuck?
            They won ONE SB in navy Blue.
            I think they look awful in Navy Blue.
            Just the same as I think the Rams look awful in their current scheme instead of maize and royal blue.
            You don’t like that?
            Go sit on a navy blue carrot.

          • Max Dales

            Lol, I must have been correct cause it looks like I touched a nerve. Your opinion is your opinion and your entitled to that just as I am to mine. You made an incorrect statement though and I corrected it and even tried to make the situation light by stating the other facts about the uniforms. Then you chose to belittle my statement just because I corrected an incorrect statement you made, so I responded in kind by belittling yours. It doesn’t matter how many SB they won in them, you were wrong and I called you out. If you can’t take it then don’t dish it pee wee. Feel free to shove it side ways at any time and go back to that sad pathetic little cave you call your mamma’s basement and move on with what sad meaningless life you lead.
            My opinion is the orange needs to go. Be it because of bad luck or the fact that they look like pumpkins, bring back the Navy.

          • Buddy Rogers

            Your superiority complex wont change the fact you are a schmuck and a jerk.
            Rotate on that navy blue carrot.
            What a maroon!

          • Max Dales

            You sure I’m the one with the superiority complex? Cause I’m getting tired of you wasting my time with your pathetic attempts to make your self feel better by constantly trying to get the last word. The notifications are getting old, so I’m done here. You were wrong, move on and find something else to fill your time with… Like maybe a girl. Good luck with that pee wee… Your gonna need it.

          • Buddy Rogers

            Yes Maaaaaaaaaaax.
            Still rotating, sonny?

    • Karamyhorse

      Give me a break!! I don’t know what’s uglier, their current orange get up, or that lame excuse for a uniform they had before. People need to understand the orange is bad mojo, and they need to change back to blue, or change the color scheme. There is a reason the Broncos can’t win in the orange, it’s ugly, and bad luck. All blue, or new color scheme!!

  • PunchInTheFace

    No way will this happen. No way on earth will Denver fans accept anything other than orange and blue. Period. End of story. The day Nike rolls out their initial designs, they’ll be burning the drafts within two hours of Denver fans threatening to storm their headquarters. At the very least, the whole fiasco should prove entertaining.

  • Cheyenne Kid

    Have a poll of Broncos fans and give them the options of what they want and then get Nike to produce them after poll is analyzed. Fairest way to do it!

  • Eli Nambo

    No,No and NO! Broncos are good with the logo and colors they have! The Bronco from now looks more cooler and intimidating than that unicorn we had before! Nike should just stick to making shoe’s and shirts!!!

  • J Smith

    At least Keep it Orange and Blue! You have got to keep the color scheme! United in Orange, Orange Crush, ect.. WE BLEED BLUE AND ORANGE!!!

  • Trinidad Lame$

    Im actually so excited if this is true. Especially if they become the Oregon of the NFL. Oregon ALWAYS has the best uniforms and tons of different uniform combos.

  • Afshin Saffarzadeh

    Relax. There were no details of the colors changing. All we really know for sure is that the logo will be redesigned and the overall uni design will be updated. I have full trust in Nike making the Broncos look amazing and to be honest, orange is a difficult color to rock. I imagine Nike will use neon orange highlights the way they use that neon yellow on Oregon. I can’t wait for the Broncos to have a fresh new look!
