Well the team pages for the two newest teams in the NFL, the Cleveland Browns and the Houston Texans are now in. (I figured I'd go ahead and knock the Texans out since it was a quick one to do.) When putting the Browns in I noticed that when they relaunched in 1999, their uniforms were a different shade of orange (brighter and more reddish? maybe) than they had been in 1995. In 1995 their uniforms were made by Russell, but after they moved to Baltimore, and the replacement team came along four years later, the uniforms were made by Puma.
This shade apparently only lasted two years, as in 2001 the uniforms were made by Reebok and went back to the more traditional Orange. I had never realized exactly what the difference was about the uniforms, but I do remember when they played their first game in the Hall Of Game against the Cowboys thinking that something looked different.
