Cleveland radio host Daryl Ruiter is reporting that the Browns will be wearing white facemasks, instead of their usual brown, for this Sunday afternoon’s home game against the Steelers.
The Browns originally wore white masks from 1975 through 2005. They switched to grey masks in 2006 and then to brown in 2015. Brown remains their primary cage color today.
The Browns have brought back the white masks with their current uni set on one previous occasion. That was last Dec. 17, when they went white for a Week 15 game against the Ravens (a 13-3 victory). You can see photos from that game here.
Personally, I much prefer the white masks to the brown ones, so I’m a fan of this move. Here’s hoping they make it permanent at some point!
