Guess the cat is out of the bag, we think.   Yesterday former Buccaneer and hall of fame football player Warren Sapp announced via his Twitter account that he would have an announcement on Thursday night's NFL Network show "Total Access." 

While the rumors continue to flow on social media and on the airwaves, Warren Sapp gave a sneak peak at what the announcement could have been on Tuesday morning.

What the helmet looks like according to Sapp is a "chrome" feel with a chrome facemask.

The Buccaneers changed their uniforms in 1997 from the orange and white "Bucco Bruce" look to the current pewter and red look.  Last season the Bucs had to shelve their "turn back the clock game" because the their throwback uniforms and helmets Sept. 29 because of an NFL health and safety ruling.
