Dolphins uniforms leaked right here

The Dolphins new uniforms will be unveiled Thursday, along with the helmet.

But as the Jacksonville Jaguars unveiled their new unis today, they accidently leaked the Miami uniforms as well. And the pictures, sent to me courtesy Dolphins in Depth contributor Joe Alvarez, are below.

The other day when I spent some time with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and CEO Mike Dee, they joked with me about the new orange pants and aqua jersey combination. Yes, they were kidding. When they turned serious they said that the new Dolphins look will be "clean."

That's the only thing they'd say to me about it.

Well, there's more to say. But I'll let the pictures tell the story. These are the Dolphins new uniforms below. There will only be two combinations this year. There will be NO aqua on aqua like in the past and there will be NO orange jersey this year.

Enjoy ...

Or rip away ...

RIP Orange!!!

I like the uniforms more than the logo.

Glad to see they didn't opt for Nike's tuxedo collar.

Hope Orange comes back in the future.

wow those uniforms are horrible

jacksonvilles even worse

Uniforms look great, logo looks crappy.
What else is new?

It's simple. The Dolphins went plain and safe. Instead of going modern like the Seahawks and giving the uniform and helmet some personality - options that Nike NO DOUBT presented to the front office - Miami chose to go for a PLAIN white jersey and PLAIN aqua jersey.

No flare, no stripes down the sides of the jerseys, nothing on the sleeves but the logo, nothing to set it apart and make people actually want to buy it.

You might as well buy a plain white T-shirt and put numbers on it because that's the uniform. Then you have the helmet - a logo and stripe down the center. Boring.

Miami could've put some texture on the numbers, a cool piping down the leg, an interesting design on the sleeve or at the top. The Dolphins also went away from using orange whatsoever when it could have been a cool thing to use as a highlight like the Seahawks do with that neon yellow/green. ( http://tjthesportsgeek.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/seahawksuni1.jpg )

The Dolphins had a chance to actually bring the team into the 21st century and failed yet again. In summation: It sucks.

Maybe some people like a more plain jersey (like me?)? My old favourite jersey was the old plain red Cardinal jersey. Until they put those ghey stripes on it.

In my opinion, jerseys and hats should be straight forward. Solid colour, logo. Perfect.

One word.... BORING!!!

The biggest thing the uniform fixes were the awful block numbers with dark blue shadow. Yuck.

Don't know why we couldn't have kept the old logo with these new unis...

Oh my goodness. Our uniforms are just awful. Horrible. I swear it looks like a low budget creation from "The Replacements" movie. I was excited when I saw Jax's new uniforms hoping that'd we'd get some of the same treatment. But really? This is it? This is the best we could come up with...

...I am thoroughly depressed...

NFL store has Dolphin(Old Logo) jerseys half off. Got a #91 for fiddy bucks and free shipping!!!

SERIOUSLY? SMH!

Kinda straight forward.....but it doesn't matter

cause.....

WINNING makes everything cool.....just ask Charlie Sheen.....

New uniforms? thats what idiot Ross has been working on.

The Uniforms Look Good.

Upgraded The Logo, And Kept It Simple. I Hate When Teams Have Like 5 Colors On The Jersey.

The White Uniform Reminds Me Of The Old Dolphins Uniform. The 70's and 80's.

Real Classy. Dashi Likes.

Not sure I like the jerseys & pants all that much. Have to agree with previous posts - it's boring.

And what's with minimizing the use of orange?? From a distance it's gonna look like there is no orange, just aqua & white.

nice score rdubs, in a few years everyone will be wanting the old fins stuff.

Cheapskate Ross will do anything to make a buck.

Jacksonville went for flashy and got clown shoes for uniforms....

LOGO SUCKS!!! COLORS ARE GREAT!!!

Anyone else notice the Red outline around the numbers on the Aqua jersey? Maybe it's just the lighting. But if it is Red - WTF?

agree jacksonville is awful, looks like an arena team

I like it it's simple and simple is good. Maybe in the next few years they will flare it out. Then it be awesome but for now it's just good.

Moose/Rich, I'm with you guys (opposite of Mark). I prefer some pizzazz in a uniform nowadays. Not so extravagant as say the U of MD uni's, but something more than Penn State. Of all teams, Miami should be doing everything it can to get AWAY from tradition, because all tradition means is they've sucked balls since the 80s (since they never went to a SB in the 90's and beyond).

And not doing a 3rd jersey (throwback, orange, what-have-you) is plain stupid in marketing terms. Obviously Miami doesn't feel it's worth it until they've won something (at least won more games than they've lost year to year. They might be right about that).

But, all that said, I could care less. My 'buying-a-new-jersey' days are long gone. I wouldn't buy a jersey this year in any case. And if I were to buy one in the future it would have to be because some player earned my respect to buy their jersey (and I was confident they'd be on the team for more than a couple of years). All I care about is the team winning. They could wear diapers and yarmulkes for I care, as long as they get the job done on the field of play!

IMO, the best jerseys are always the players in them. No matter how terrible a jersey looks, the players, in those jersey need be great.

No matter how great the jerseys are, there's no recompense if the players in those jerseys are terrible.

I say let just play some great ball, great or terrible, the jerseys mean zilch. Its the player in them that truly makes it a great or terrible jersey.

It's orange. The color is all messed up. Look at the swoosh, it looks yellow. I am sure it is orange on the jerseys.

You Can Actually Wear The White Jersey To More Than Just Football Games.

The Only Thing I Didn't Like On The Uniforms Is The Stripes On The Pants. No Stripes or Any Of Those Gay Designs They Add To The Other Jerseys. Keep It Clean.

Wow. Another great job by the Dolphins "unveiling" their new look. That's a pretty underwhelming change. Don't get me wrong. I appreciate the simplicity and block numbers over some cheesy font. But the logo on the sleeve? How about some classic striping?

PLEASE PLASE PLEASE do the 70's style throwbacks as the alternate. Please?!

I had been suspicious of the Dolphins' using a new font on their website, for headlines and such. Looks like I was correct in thinking that was going to be a new font for the team name - the team name above the numbers appears to be the same font. Upgrade.

DC,

Im with you, my jersey buying days are over, most players only remain with same team no more than 5 seasons.

Safest jersey bet is qb, and that's only if he's showing signs of being a superstar. Then there's great chance he remains with same team at least 10 seasons. I say this ala Montana, Manning.

Jerseys look OK, the logo is beyond bad

Ballin on a budget ... go Rdubs!!

SO F**KING BORING!

OMG. Just waiting for my friends to call and rip on these uni's!!.. Bland, Plain, Simple,Boring. The uni's I could live with if the logo was kick ass or vice-versa but they both stink..
I'd rather have just a Fin with 'PHINS' under it if we were gonna go this simple!!!. "C'MON MAN!!!"

Looks...very boring...but OK.

The REAL problem is SHAMU the whale is still the logo on the helmet.


I bet if they would use an Orange facemask that would really make those pop!

If the Dolphins removed the new logo from the uniforms, they would actually be great!

Old AGGRESSIVE logo with those old school winning colors would have been ideal NOT THE GILIE ONE!!! I'm beginning to think Ross is stupid it is obvious that he don't give a care to what might be cool & will sell!!!

Where I DO agree with Mark is saying no to a trade-down scenario. I really don't understand what "value" picks in the Draft means. If you get a player who's a contributer, or a star, does it matter if you got them in the 1st or 6th rounds? So, Brady was a "value" pick. How about Aikman? #1 pick in the Draft. Won SBs. Is he not a "value" pick because he was #1?

And if Tyler Eifert becomes a HOF TE, best that ever played, would he NOT be a "value" pick because he was drafted at the top of the 1st instead of the bottom? That's just dumb. It's giving credence to the "experts", who's predictions aren't all that expert if you analyze them. Look where they graded Egnew. Look where they graded Kaepernick. Would you still take Locker/Gabbert over him now? It's all a cr*pshoot. You take the player you believe will be a star, PERIOD. It doesn't matter where you get him. If you're right, he should help your team.

BOYCOTT THE FINS UNTIL IRELAND IS FIRED! WE'RE SICK AND TIRED OF LOSING! WE'RE SICK AND TIRED OF THE CLASSLESS, INCOMPETENT GM! BOYCOTT AND HELP MAKE A CHANGE!

Oh I like this, ya'll negative nellys quit being turds

My jersey wearing days are pretty much over too. I buy jerseys to frame em. And I only frame the ones that earned it...

Marino, Thomas, Sam Madison, Ricky Williams so far. Keeps growing every year. Next additions will be Nick Buoniconti and paul Warfield.

I remember in the early 70's most of the nfl thought we had the "UGLIEST" jerseys in the league.

However, it wasnt the jerseys, but the future hof players in them, that led this franchise to 3 straight sb appearances, 2 straight sb championships. Then most of all:

17-0 undefeated untied season, a record that still stands alone today.

Yes, in the early 70's our jerseys were viewed as amongst the more ugliest in the league. But it didn't stop those 3 straight sb appearance, 2 traight sb championships, and 17-0 seasons from pumping in.

YG,

That Is My Criteria To Buying A Jersey. Like DC Said You Get A Jersey To Support The Player, Not The Team. If The Player Happens To Play For Your Team. Then You Hit The Jackpot.

But You Still Look At The Jersey. You Have To. That Is How You Can Tell The Difference Between Teams. Some Teams Have Ugly Uniforms And Don't Deserve To Win.

The All White Forces Teams To Wear Dark Colors When They Play In Miami.

Also, Have You Seen The Steelers Throwback? Doesn't Matter If You Win A Superbowl With That Jersey. They Will Still Be Ugly Uniforms.

And Players Are Just Like Fans. They Want To Look Good Representing Their Team.

Agreed With The Fins Should've Had At Least 1 More Colors. Would Like To Pick Out Of 3 Colors.

I agree! Get rid of the new logo and the unis are not that bad. I can never see myself wearing anything with the new logo even if they win the Super Bowl this year. I will be stocking up on old logo merchandise.

BOYCOTT ANYTHING WITH THIS GIRLIE LOGO ON IT!!! I AM ONLY RUNNING WITH THE OLD SCHOOL LOGO PRODUCTS, MORE MONEY ROSS IS NOT GONNA MAKE OFF THIS GARBAGE!!!

I bet the team Ross hired for the new logo are secret Jets fans that wanted to make us have one of the most ridiculous looking logos in the history of the NFL.

This entire uniform screams to me of the old 70's BUCS. The ridiculous looking logo and the plain boring uni. At least the Bucs uni made them look like ice cream and that hookey winking Buccaneer with the knife in his mouth looked like a looney crazy buccaneer.

We just look like a SEA WORLD whale advertisement. Hey, maybe Ross signed a deal with them and its some type of new subliminal message to go to Sea World.

I LIKE IT!

Agreed on all fronts. I suppose you could go with the less is more angle but look at all the teams that have radically changed their uniforms and coincidentally changed the atmosphere around the team simultaneously from losing to winning.
Broncos, bucs, falcons, seahawks, patriots hell even the vikings did well after revamping their units. Did or will their success last forever? nope. Was the change in uniforms the only reason for wins. Nope. Did it help? I think so. I don't hate our new unis by any means, intact i like the all white version a lot. I was just hoping for unis with a more modern look.

Dashi,

The highest accolades in football isn't based on who has the best looking jerseys for the eye. Its best on who has the best looking team between the hash marks.

No teams ever been crown champions based on best looking uniforms, no matter the sport, nor level of competition. Pro or amateur.

Yikes! People gripe about everything!

Best e4xample of a team's play being as horrible as their uniforms, were the 70's Tampa Bay Bucs.

I do agree. The new logo does look fat, soft, and non threatening ... it's just shite.

The Dolphins are an Arena caliber team. Ross will be buying tons of his own tickets again.

dang nike cant hold water. logo was early now uniforms early. but they look so plain n dull, this wat you guys had us waiting for? glad im not goin to draft party would have been really pissed chillis or duffys it is.

IF we go 11-5 these will be the best jerseys since the Yankees came out with pinstripes.

Being viewed as having very odd uniforms, was one of the primary reasons for me originally becoming a dolfan in the first place.

I distinctly remember in the early 70's, both the Dolphins and Oakland A's as having sports strangest uniforms. I adopted both as my favorite sports teams then.

The ugly A's uniforms won 3 straight world series champions over the same period the dolphins made 3 straight sb appearances and 2 straight sb championship.

Boy did choosing teams with ugly uniforms work for me back then! LOL...

IF we go 11-5 these will be the best jerseys since the Yankees came out with pinstripes.

If we go 11-5 I'll blow you in front of the entire blog!!!!!!!!!!

In the early 70's I viewed the Oakland A's as my Miami Dolphins of baseball. Catfish Hunter was my Griese, Reggie Jackson my Csonka, and Vida Blue was my Paul Warfield.

If you have the right players, ugly uniforms work. LOL...
