The Cincinnati Bengals have finally confirmed that they will have alternate white helmets starting in the 2022 season.
They made the announcement through social media with a National Geographic-type of video.
Some Bengals fans tried to find out more information before the reveal, forcing the team to “deny.”
What new helmets? 🤷♂️

Likewise, some of their supporters have predicted that the white helmet is in the works.
The #Bengals helmet has to be the white with black stripes.
Unless they plan on a uniform reveal too. They’re not wearing throwbacks with the current uniforms and the black helmet with orange stripes has hardly been talked about.
WHITE TIGER SZN 🔥

You can just feel the excitement of Bengals fans over these sleek helmets and they’d be disappointed if it didn’t happen.

For some, it’s like a dream come true after a lengthy wait.
I’ve been waiting for the white Bengals helmets for well over 30 years. Just always thought it made more sense than the traditional helmet.
I am so incredibly happy to see this happening. A dream come true. Finally.

But aside from having great-looking helmets, the team itself is also playing great football as of late.
They played in Super Bowl LVI and are looking to build on their momentum by upgrading their offensive line.
That offseason focus helps Joe Burrow execute more plays to further elevate their offense.
The White Bengal Is Here
This fan is very excited about the new helmets so he shared a potential play call for their first touchdown in their all-white uniforms.

More importantly, the white Bengal isn’t the only change that is coming to the franchise as they usher in a new era for the squad.
So we’ve been given new uniforms, the Ring of Honor, a Super Bowl run, an indoor practice facility and the white helmets we’ve been wanting in about the span of a year … you spoil us @Bengals #WhoDey 🧡🖤

That’s why Bengals fans are not afraid of declaring their team as simply the best in the league.
