11:03 AM ET 03.05 | The Oakland Raiders are one of the most storied franchises in the NFL and have kept a traditional look throughout the years. However, running back Mike Goodson sent out an image on social media that could be showing a sign of change for the Raiders. There is no hard evidence that the Raiders will go to an all-black helmet and it could even be that this helmet was simply a concept, but the idea of Oakland rocking an all-black alternate uniform is something that could excite fans. FanSided.com has an image of the concept black helmet.

Let the crazies in the black hole design the uniforms, at least we'd get a few laughs from them.

Al Davis-style velour warmup suits to go with the helmets? That would certainly add a new dimension to the team's image.

They'll look like carpenter ants from the cheap seats at the Coliseum.

If they include stealth technology in the uniforms, Carson Palmer would have time to throw the ball.

and thus a new answer will be required for the bar trivia question which NFL team has gone the longest without a change in its uniform. I hate the special uniform b.s.

New helmet doesn't look that different than the old helmet.
