Lions to unveil new logo next Monday
Lions president Tom Lewand indicated today that the Lions will unveil their new logo and uniform in a press conference next Monday.
"I'm not going to get into specifics of what we're going to talk about a week from today, but it'll be a pretty comprehensive announcement about the look of the the revamped franchise," he said after a press conference to trumpet next year's Frozen Four at Ford Field.
Lewand first mentioned the possibility of a revamped look when the Lions hosted two town hall-style meetings in January. The new logo leaked out on NFL.com last month when a toy truck appeared for sale with a meaner, more defined "Bubbles." Changes to Ford Field and team headquarters will be "done in a rolling fashion," Lewand said.
"The interest in everything is heartening because the interest level that people have ever since we teased the possibility that this maybe coming is I think very indicative of the interest level that our fans have in the real product, which is what's out there on Sunday afternoons," he said. "That gives us great confidence, although the recognition of great responsibility that we have to get that product right first no matter what the package looks like."
