Bengals Troll Browns

CINCINNATI -- With a "nod to players of the past while looking forward to things to come," the Cincinnati Bengals announced major news Wednesday regarding their logo.

It wasn't really "major," per se. But in the spirit of April Fools' Day, the announcement still had the Buckeye State buzzing, and may have added a little lighthearted fuel to the Bengals' rivalry with the Cleveland Browns.

As part of a prank to commemorate the holiday and to troll their in-state rival, the Bengals tweeted they would have a "fresh new look for the 2015 season." The tweet contained a link that sent readers to their website. Once on the team site, readers were taken to a page that featured three pictures.

The first had two versions of the team's striped "B" logo side-by-side with the years 2014 and 2015 underneath them. The 2015 version of the "B" logo had an orange in it that was a slightly lighter shade of what existed in the 2014 logo. The second picture featured the same cosmetic tweak to the orange in the Bengals' striped helmet logo. The third picture also had a similar change in color between the words "Cincinnati Bengals 2014" and "April Fools 2015."
