      "EXTRA PROTECTION FOR THE O-LINE AND FRONT SEVEN

      You couldn’t miss the extra padding that offensive linemen, defensive linemen, linebackers and tight ends wore on the outside of their helmets during practice.

      It’s not the first time that players have worn such helmet additions. Some players have chosen to wear the Guardian Cap and Defend Your Head ProTech Helmet Cap in practices in recent years. But after a joint research effort between the NFL and NFL Players Association, this year those caps became mandated for training camp.

      “It’s a protocol thing from the league,” Hackett said. “We’re going to wear those, I believe, up to the second preseason game, and we talk about the team all the time, it’s about protecting the team.”

      The padding is designed to minimize the impact of not only the significant collisions, but the incidental helmet-to-helmet contact that happens naturally within the scope of most plays. Multiple universities have conducted research into the accumulated effects of hits, including North Carolina, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

      “If that’s going to help anybody, I mean, hey, we’re going to do it,” Hackett said.

      That being said, not every player welcomed it.

      “It’s heavy,” D.J. Jones said. “No one likes it. But it’s for our safety, so, we have to like it. They’re making it easier for us to not be in a bad situation. We can’t do nothing but respect that"


      “It felt like a game, honestly," Russell Wilson said after the Broncos' first 2022 camp practice. "We were getting after it.”

          That’s weird cause heavy contact doesn’t even happen in practice.

          heavier helmets means they’ll compensate. Which means it will do the opposite and cause more injury.
