The new-look Miami Dolphins are, well, looking new. 

This offseason has seen some major changes in the Sunshine State. Reggie Bush, Kevin Burnett and Jake Long are gone, while Mike Wallace, Brandon Gibson, Dustin Keller, Dannell Ellerbe and others have replaced them on a revamped Dolphins roster.

Coming after a season in which the Dolphins brought in a new quarterback and a new head coach en route to a 7-9 record, it's clear that the organization is serious about turning over a new leaf. 

And on the day when more youth will be injected into the team, the Dolphins decided to unveil their new-look Nike Elite 51 uniform to match their new, quickly improving squad (via Nike.com, where you can find many more pictures of the Dolphins' new unis):

Sure, the new uniform is full of all kinds of new technology—lightweight material, better ventilation, more mobility, etc. Long gone are the days when guys like George Costanza had to worry about the switch from polyester to cotton, that's for sure.

But what really stands out, of course, is the look of the new threads.

The first word that comes to my mind is slick.

All-white uniforms—which tend to epitomize modern, new, clean and fast—are usually met with nothing but acclaim, and the same should hold true in this case.

Moreover, the light blue and hints of orange throughout not only spice things up even more, but they also assure that the team doesn't stray from its unique color scheme.

It's a terrific combination of old-school colors and the new-look, new-direction Dolphins.
