Orange you ready for some football?

For the first time in team history, the Dolphins will wear orange jerseys.

By staff report

MIAMI -- Steve Spurrier ought to feel at home tonight at Pro Player Stadium, what with all the orange.

The Dolphins will debut their new orange jerseys when they take on Spurrier's Washington Redskins. Spurrier formerly coached the Florida Gators, whose school colors are orange and blue.

The Miami jerseys, first modeled by Dolphins players in September at the team's "Countdown to Kickoff" event, mark a historic departure. Since their inception 38 years ago, the Dolphins have worn only white or aqua uniforms.

The orange jersey is the result of a new NFL policy that allows teams to wear a third uniform. The Dolphins worked with NFL Properties on the jersey's design.

"We considered several options, but orange was the unanimous choice," team president Eddie Jones said in September. "Along with white and aqua, orange is one of our primary colors and it represents this team and South Florida very well. We will continue to maintain our very identifiable white and aqua uniforms that have helped establish the Dolphins' strong tradition and will be able to offer our fans an additional way to celebrate their team spirit."
