The Cincinnati Bengals will keep the iconic striped helmets in 2021 to go along with the redesigned jerseys.

We knew this back in mid-January, as team president Mike Brown seemed to make it clear that the team wouldn’t change the helmets.

But the Bengals seemed to offer up a little more confirmation Monday by sharing an Instagram photo with the following caption: “Can’t wait to see these helmets paired with #NewStripes”

Perhaps more interesting now is something noteworthy — the idea the Bengals could have more than one helmet in 2021.

Should the NFL change the one-helmet rule this offseason, suddenly the Bengals could be looking at doing a throwback helmet with the team name on the side or even a white-and-stripes look to go with the “Color Rush” jerseys.

But that’s getting ahead of things and hinges on what the NFL decides. For now, the tried-and-true helmets are the only thing we know for sure about the redesign — though the Bengals’ website did seem to offer another hint recently.
