The Miami Dolphins new logo was leaked last week and his since been shared all over the internet, and the buzz is growing.

Despite the NFL team's refusal to confirm whether or not the leaked photo was legit, various news outlets are reporting that the new logo is the real thing, courtesy of confidential sources within the organization.

Gone is the somewhat cartoonish dolphin that defined the team in the former logo, as well as the iconic white helmet with the letter "M" that had previously adorned the leaping dolphin at the center of the old logo. The dolphin image itself has also been revised, whereas it had previously been more vertical, it is now entirely horizontal, giving the appearance of the marine mammal swimming as opposed to leaping through the air.

Additionally, the size of the orange sunburst that surrounds the logo has been increased and more sun-spikes have been added to it.

The team will be changing their facemasks from aqua to white, resulting in an entirely white helmet, reports the Miami Herald.

The Dolphins will officially unveil the new gear on April 25 – the first day of the NFL Draft.

Another NFL team that will be changing its appearance in the upcoming season is the New York Giants.

According to ESPN, the Giants will be sporting white pants, as opposed to their current grey pants, while wearing their blue jerseys for select home or away games.

According to a Giants' spokesperson, the "white pants have a thin red stripe bordered by gray and blue stripes." In compassion, the gray pants had a blue stripe bordered by gray and red stripes.

This will be the first season since 1999 that Big Blue has worn white pants.

Teams are permitted to have three alternate pants under NFL guidelines.
