Thank you. Now, on with the silliness...
Is this the new Browns helmet?
The above helmet has created a mini-stir on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit and other places where Browns fans meet to fire rumors at each other, but it’s clearly not the new Browns helmet.
As others have pointed out, it’s still using the old typeface for the Browns logo on the front.
But it looks cool, regardless. The matte finish looks neat, if you go for that sort of thing, and the brown facemask is probably a decent simulation of what the actual facemask will look like.
It’s not uncommon for simulations like this to get created, dribble onto the internet and cause a stir. It’s amazing, but not uncommon.
Beyond that, it’s fodder for the internet, talk radio, and nothing more.
