Dolphins Considering Logo Change

The Miami Dolphins' logo hasn't changed much since the team entered the league back in 1966. It was tweaked in 1997, but it was nothing like the complete overhaul that teams like the Buccaneers or the Broncos made. Now they're "well into discussions" with the NFL to change their logo for the 2013 season, but don't expect anything brand new this time either.

Dolphins CEO Mike Dee spoke to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post about the team's desire to change the logo up a bit:

"We're not talking about changing colors or taking the sun off the helmet. It's not going to be like when Tampa Bay changed from orange to pewter gray," Dee said. "It's definitely keeping one eye on what's traditional in the logo intact, while keeping one eye on a 21st century version of that."

Whatever you do, Dolphins, just make sure that you're not making the little dolphin on the helmet wear a Dolphins helmet. That would be...Dolphinception.
