DAVIE, Fla. The Miami Dolphins unveiled their new logo and uniforms Thursday night at Sun Life Stadium, shortly before the start of the NFL Draft. Considered the fifth logo in the teams 48-year history, the modernized design still includes a dolphin against an image of the suns rays. Unlike earlier versions, the new-look dolphin does not wear a helmet. The logo also represents a return to the franchises original aqua and orange color scheme. I never was a big fan of a dolphin with a helmet on it, but thats the one we had, former Dolphins quarterback Bob Griese said. (The new one) looks confident, it looks stronger, it looks ready to battle. The new Nike uniforms include a lighter, brighter color palatte that recalls the franchises roots and colors. As an athlete, you dont want to worry about your uniform on the field. Its good that Nike thinks about the details so we dont have to, Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace said. Look good, feel good, play good thats what its all about. Former Dolphins greats Dan Marino and Jason Taylor said they liked the teams new look. At the end of the day, the logo looks great but the team that goes on the field, as long as they can go out and be intimidating and win games, I dont care what you wear, Taylor said. Its about looking forward and a new vision for the Dolphins, but the bottom line is its all about winning football games, Marino said. "It doesnt matter what the logo is of youre winning, but at the same time, if youre winning and and you have a nice logo, it all looks good.
