A potential change to the rule allowing one helmet a year per-NFL player could allow the Buffalo Bills and the entire league to begin adding vintage uniforms to the rotation starting in 2021.

According to a report from Pro Football Talk, the NFL will not change their helmet policy for the upcoming 2020 season, but they are discussing an alteration to the policy for 2021.

The near decade-long rule has forced teams to have just one helmet color, thus removing the possibility of the Bills bringing back their red helmet along with the 1990's uniforms. It has erased the idea of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers bringing back their famous creamsicle jerseys, the Philadelphia Eagles from adding kelly green to the mix, or the Tennessee Titans from reviving the Houston Oilers getup.

The only way teams have been able to bring back any sort of vintage look is through changes of their helmet decal. The Los Angeles Rams and Denver Broncos have taken advantage of this policy, adding the gold horns or the bronco inside the letter D logo to their navy blue helmets. But they never looked right with the brighter, original jersey color from those past eras.
