That the Cleveland Browns logo is the team’s helmet is a source of pride for many Browns fans. The simplicity and the legacy of the orange helmet with the oreo stripe down the middle perfectly encapsulate the franchise’s history. It also highlights the difficulty of making a logo for a team called the Browns.

A silhouette of Paul Brown despite the fact he later started the rival Cincinnati Bengals which his family still owns? Probably not. The other two identifiable characters for a logo, the elf and multiple variations of a dog, could be okay but don’t represent the word “Browns” per se.

With the NFL allowing more flexibility with helmets moving forward, some have wondered if Cleveland would add something to their iconic ones. It seems unlikely but rookie WR David Bell had an idea.

NFL.com posted a video of team rookies attempting to draw their team’s logos. Early in the video, it was easy to wonder if any Browns player would be a part of it. Bell, as a part of the rookie premiere event, did his best to create a new logo for the team:

You can see the entire video here and see how few of this year’s rookies show artistic talent:

Bell’s part of the video comes up around the 1:40 mark.

Do you have a strong opinion about the Browns adding a logo to their helmet even for just one game?
