Orange Jersey Time Once More

The Browns wanted to "authenticate" their orange jerseys by wearing them once more - this time with the patch honoring Al Lerner. The NFL has approved the request, so we'll see orange on Sunday at CBS.

The Browns will break out the orange jerseys again Sunday when they host the Carolina Panthers.

Originally, the Browns were supposed to wear the new "third" jersey just once this season, but the NFL approved the team's request to wear orange one more time as part of the league's "Thanksgiving Classics" week-long celebration.

The Browns are 1-0 in the orange jerseys, beating Houston 34-17 on Oct. 20. They have also won three straight on the road in the white jerseys, but the Browns wanted to "authenticate" the orange jerseys with the patch remembering Al Lerner.

"We want to thank the National Football League for the opportunity to wear our orange alternate jersey again this weekend," said Browns president Carmen Policy. "We wanted to authenticate the orange jersey by wearing it with the A.L. patch (in commemoration of Al Lerner) displayed on the left chest. The orange jerseys did not display the A.L. patch when they were worn on Oct. 20. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the orange jerseys will go to the Cleveland Browns Foundation."
