Miami is now using the new logo as their Twitter avatar and all over their official website. Official unveiling date is now set for April 25th when the club will unveil all their new logos as well as the new uniforms.
Some quotes from team CEO Mike Dee about the logo from that NFL.com article:
“It was leaked by somebody at Nike. We had always had a plan to kind of roll it out over a 30-day period, so we’re going to start rolling it out. But the logo is only one part of the announcement. It’s a complete re-branding of the team.”
“There’s a lot of history in this in that we went back to colors, the true aqua and the true orange that were part of the first 29 years of the franchise’s history, but the logo design itself and some other things you’ll see respect that tradition in the past but also have an eye on the 21st century Dolphins.”
