The uniform and helmet of the Cleveland Browns are often discussed due to their simplicity and iconic nature. Changes are rarely welcomed, especially the versions put together by Alec Scheiner’s group that were replaced a couple of years ago.

Last year, the Browns unveiled their 75th-anniversary uniforms that paid tribute to much of their history.
