Cleveland (92.3 The Fan) – The Browns will wear their special all brown with orange lettering and striping ‘color rush’ uniforms, which were supposed to debut Nov. 10, 2016 at Baltimore Thursday night.

The team is expected to wear the uniforms 3 times this season, including Sun. Oct. 7 against the Ravens and again later in the season.

In addition to the uniforms, the end zones at FirstEnergy Stadium have been painted in alternating brown and orange stripes – 16 to be exact in tribute to the franchise’s 16 Hall of Famers.

A complete uniform makeover is currently underway for the team and will debut for the 2020 season. The Browns are also exploring designs for a new logo to replace the helmet as the team’s primary mark.
