Does leaked photo show new Dolphins logo?

March 19, 2013

On Monday, the Dolphins announced that their new logo and uniforms would be unveiled on April 18.
But might we know what it already looks like?
A photo (seen above) was first tweeted out by Corey Mitchko (@C_Mitchko), who said he came across it on the Instagram account of a user with the handle "sneaker_pimp_simmons" according to UniWatch's Paul Lukas. 
A hand is seen holding a shirt/jersey with the Nike swoosh -- Nike is the official jersey supplier of the NFL -- and a Dolphins logo which isn't their current one.
The logo seen on the shirt/jersey is very similar to one that made the rounds back in early January that was believed to be a close approximation of the finished product. The Dolphins logo has remained much the same since the team's inception in 1966. In 1974, the Dolphin was re-positioned in front of the sunburst, while in 1997 it underwent a revision, though it kept the general design of the jumping Dolphin wearing a helmet.
