Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross On Logo Change: "It's time for an update"

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

One of the worst kept secrets in the NFL this season was the Miami Dolphins' planned logo change. Hints to near confirmations throughout the year from CEO Mike Dee, kept the fans abuzz about what could be getting ready to come out of Davie. Yesterday, owner Stephen Ross confirmed what everyone already knew: the Dolphins will have a new logo in 2013.

The Jimmy Johnson era in Miami will finally end when the Miami Dolphins change the logo the former Dallas Cowboys head coach designed when he came to the Dolphins in 1997. During yesterday's media availability, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross confirmed what may be the worst kept secret in South Florida. The Dolphins will have a new logo in 2013.

"We will have a new logo," Ross said during his "State of the Dolphins" press conference. "You'll have it by the draft. We're looking at it. Finalizing it; I am excited about that fact. It's time for an update,"

Last month, a supposed "leaked" logo made the rounds on the internet. DolFansNYC originally released a cell phone photo on December 23 of what they said could be the new logo. From sources they have at Nike, who will make the uniforms, the cell phone picture is "very, very close." On December 26, Paul Lukas released via his Twitter account an cleaned up version of the possible logo.

When asked about the leaked logo, Ross replied, "I mean there have been a lot leaked, so I don't know what you saw from that standpoint."

Ross would not give any further details on what the Dolphins could be thinking. Is the above logo the actual logo? Is it close? Does it have nothing in common with the direction the team is going?

Looks like, even with a "confirmation" that the team will have a new look in 2013, we are all going to have to continue to wait to see what it really is.
