NFL Nails Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady Again With a Helmet Ban
The NFL and NFL Players Association have enforced a helmet ban for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, according to ESPN.
By the end of last season, 32 players, including Brady, were wearing helmets that are now banned, the sports station reported.
Frankly, it seems to me that the NFL doesn't like Brady. He always seems to be getting nailed for something, or the Patriots for that matter.
Jeff Miller, the NFL's executive vice president for health and safety initiatives, said in the ESPN report that it is "eminently doable" to switch them to approved equipment.
The sports station stated that "If a team is found to have known about a player wearing a banned helmet, or to have facilitated the use of one, it will be subject to league discipline."
I'm not sure who the equipment manager is for the Pats, but they better make sure to handle this, as we don't want another four-game suspension.
The NFL and NFL Players Association have been testing helmets since 2015, ESPN stated.
