The NFL announced on Tuesday it will end all new or re-purposed Horn instruments.
“It is our hope that we will be able to find a way to keep some of these instruments in the league that are in the best interest of the players, coaches and staff,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement.
The announcement comes a day after the league voted to change the name of its new football helmet, the N-Gone.
The league had originally chosen the name “Panthers” to reflect the league’s new football uniforms, which have not been released yet.
“The Panthers are our team name and we are excited to be part of it,” McCarthy said.
The N-gone, which stands for New England Patriots, was chosen for its distinctive white helmet design and white helmet decals.
