The Cleveland Browns’ New Logo Looks Exactly Like The Old Logo

The Cleveland Browns’ 2014 season did not end well.

After losing last year’s first-round draft pick — rehab — and their top wide receiver — league conduct policy — Cleveland decided to surprise football fans across the nation with an unexpected, updated logo on Tuesday morning in a last-ditch effort to stay relevant.

Drum-roll, please…

Wait… what exactly did they update?

According to the Browns’ website:

Our updated helmet logo is reflective of today’s modern Cleveland – the design honors the past while evolving into the future. The iconic brown and white stripes stand tall over the orange helmet – a new orange color that matches the passion of the Dawg Pound. The new brown facemask represents the strength and toughness of Cleveland.

Let’s compare:

I am a fan of the updated “Dawg Pound” logo, but I don’t think changing the shade of the orange on the helmet can exactly be called a redesign.

The Pound is one of the NFL’s most tortured fan-bases, and I’m sure they appreciate this goodwill gesture from the team. That being said, I’d also bet Cleveland fans would rather have the team address its multitude of on-field deficiencies rather than shop for new uniforms.
