NFL changes one of their uniforms rules
For the past several years the NFL has mandated that teams can only wear one helmet for the entire season. For example, a team cannot wear a different colored helmet to go with their “throwback uniforms.”
The league put this rule in place due to safety concerns with helmets when it comes to concussions. I never understood how wearing different helmets can cause concussions, but that is the rule that they put in place.
Now the NFL will allow teams to start wearing alternate helmets starting in 2022, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
This means that teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can wear their white throwback helmets to go along with their creamsicle uniforms. Also, the New England Patriots can wear their white throwback helmets and so on for other teams as well.
The Giants have been fortunate because their throwbacks also have blue helmets, so they’ve been able in wear them every season. The last time the Giants didn’t wear a blue helmet was back in 1934.
