The NFL mandated the Guardian Cap in the spring,, the first time players are required to wear a headpiece outside of their helmets during training camp.
Players will have to wear the padded shell until the third preseason week, when teams usually ease the amount of contact in practice.
Most Eagles players said it doesn’t affect their speed or feel uncomfortable. It surely didn’t slow tight end Dallas Goedert down as he looked like a ballerina in one play, leaping into the air and connecting with Jalen Hurts during 7-on-7.
“I think we look a little goofy, but they’re there for good reason,” Goedert said.
“They did studies with them, and you know, if there’s anything to keep us safer, why not do it? You only get one brain, so I might as well keep it as best you can.”
