The Tampa Bay Buccaneers unveiled new uniforms on Tuesday (though many fans would prefer the old creamsicle look), and one of their NFC South division rivals is about to do the same. The Atlanta Falcons tweeted a teaser on Tuesday for a uniform unveiling that will happen on April 14.

And — as tends to happen — what appear to be the new uniforms have already leaked on social media.

It’s hard to tell too much from these photos, but we see a black matte helmet (top right photo), and a gradient effect on the red jerseys, fading from red to black (bottom right photo).

Here’s how Twitter has reacted to the leaked photos:

UPDATE: Yes, these are the uniforms. The Falcons unveiled the uniforms on Wednesday — rather than waiting until
April 14 — after the leak.
