In an interview with TEAM 1270's Art Regner and Doug Karsch, Claiborne was asked about Detroit's Honolulu Blue and Silver uniforms and if it might be time for a change since Detroit has never appeared in a Super Bowl in that uniform.
Claiborne replied "you just might see that," then quickly backtracked from the statement, saying "uh, oh."
Sources are now telling Lionsfans.com that indeed the Lions will wear a "new look" uniform for one time only; the opening game at Ford Field vs. the Green Bay Packers.
It has long been rumored that the Lions commissioned a new design for their helmets in the summer of 2000.
At that time, a design surfaced on various internet sites displaying a fierce-looking growling Lion head as the end of a black swoosh.
Since the design had been put together by a leading graphic design firm, rumors picked up steam that Detroit was headed towards a full-blown uniform change.
With Claiborne's comments today and the sources statements, it appears their really will be a new-attitude at Ford Field this fall.
