There's a lot more orange around the New England Patriots' locker room these days.
Fed up with players taking home their team-issued gray practice shorts and not leaving them at the facility as required, the Patriots decided to swap them out for a burnt orange color, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi and retired offensive guard Geoff Schwartz were apparently big fans of the gray shorts too.
I remember those. Good underwear.

HAHAHA this is amazing! I think I still have some of the gray ones at my house from when I was younger. https://t.co/Lj1WtJk1IA
