The NFL teams aren’t currently doing anything, so OspreyDawn over on reddit decided that making the best use of his time would be to make new logos for some of the NFL teams he felt were in need of a new flavor and image on their helmets.
Just to give you the feeling that his post isn’t all about the arts, we’ve added just a tad of info to keep you slightly informed heading into the 2012 season.
