The Detroit Lions Released A New Logo And Font For The Team Beginning In 2017
Back in 2009, Detroit got an upgrade with a new logo that looked more like a Lion. It was a good change for the team coming off an 0-16 season, a fresh new look for a fresh start. Back in February 2016, Detroit Lions President Rod Wood said “I do want to look at our entire uniform, color scheme and look.”
There was hype around the color rush uniform a few months back and it was finally revealed as an all black look, but that Detroit wouldn’t wear it in 2016. Detroit seems to be moving away from the color black though according to this tweet

With that news you have to wonder if Detroit will keep with the black “Color Rush” uniforms in 2017 or would they change to an all blue or all silver look? Along with the change to get rid of the color black, it seems that new jerseys will be unvield on April 13. Rod Wood did say back in February last year “I think everything is up for review with the uniform, but it does take a lot of lead time to make a change like that.”
Here is the new logo and font for the Lions:
The changes are slight, as the black trimming around the Lion is replaced with silver and it seems to be a tad lighter shade of blue getting used. Could they be getting rid of the black color that Matt Millen brought to Detroit to represent change like they did with the logo in 2009?
