Examining new Rams uniform concepts

EARTH CITY, Mo. -- There is, perhaps, no non-football issue that draws more attention for the Los Angeles Rams (and most teams) than uniforms.

After the NFL announced nearly a month ago that the team would be returning to Los Angeles for a second stint, there were many questions left to answer but one of the most popular was what would become of the uniforms.

Along with that, would the Rams retain their same colors? Would they go back to the old ones? What would the helmets look like?

On Wednesday, Paul Lukas, who handles Uni Watch here at ESPN.com, unveiled some reader submissions for new uniforms, new logos and other assorted possibilities for the team.

Here's a look at all of the entries that were submitted.

Because the NFL has such stringent rules on how often and when a team can change uniforms or colors, it remains to be seen when the Rams will be making any potential tweaks. It wouldn't be a surprise if they made some serious alterations at some point.

We'll see what form that takes and when it happens in due time.
