Remember those all-orange uniforms the Dolphins wore for their Thursday night game against Cincinnati last year? Those, or some new variation of them, will be back.
The NFL owners voted down a proposal that would have allowed teams to opt out of wearing the Color Rush jerseys for those games. It sounds like Miami would have preferred to dump them.
“I’m not a big fan of it, but other people are,” said Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who didn’t specify which way he voted. “I think, really, the coach weighs in an awful lot on that.”
Miami wore them for one game, drawing comparisons to Creamsicles and Cheetos, and elected to wear throwback uniforms for two home games.
While the league has yet to announce the colors or the Thursday Night Football schedule for the upcoming season, the Dolphins don’t have many viable options besides orange. They already have pants and jerseys in all aqua and all white, so other than that, the only reasonable choices might be all black or all silver.
