One day before the Cleveland Browns are set to reveal their new logo, a Reddit user named “fanshop” claimed to have seen the must anticipated new brand.
“Long story short our truck got in last night to beat a blizzard coming. We are rolling out product on Wednesday, but I’d bet the logos leak tomorrow because If we got this product lots of other stores did too.
The first is a lighter than we’re used to Brown block C With a white outline. It’s pretty straight forward.
The second is the new helmet. It’s a darker orange with a broad Brown stripe bordered in white with what looks like little hats in the stripe like Seattle’s wing pattern. Brown facemask too.
The final one is my favorite and if I had to guess, is bet it’s the new primary logo. It’s a silhouette of a man from shoulders up wearing a derby hat but his chin is to his chest and the hat’s brim covers all but his chin and a smirk. His hat is brown with a orange stripe. His coat is orange and his tie is brown.
I think it’s Paul Brown and they can’t show his face because of his son that owns the Bengals. But it’s seriously bad ass.
I won’t post pics because I love my job, but like I said it’s probably leaking tomorrow because I know we’re not the only store that got a truck tonight.”
If this is true, then it aligns with previous comments about the up-coming new look being a happy medium of Seattle and Minnesota along with a radical rebrand. In what seems to be a civic unifying woodmark used by the Cleveland Indians and Cavaliers, the Browns possibly going to a block C wouldn’t be that far-fetched.
As for the us their namesake and founder in Hall of Fame coach Paul Brown, who also founded the in-state division rival Bengals, this new alleged logo would be a sign of honoring the franchise’s rich tradition while going in a bold and different direction entirely.
