Nearly 40 percent of NFL players last season wore a helmet model that got the second-lowest rating for reducing the risk of concussions in a study by Virginia Tech researchers.

Very interesting. I wasn't aware that players could choose their brand of helmet. I thought Riddell had contract rights to produce all NFL helmets.
Hopefully this kind of research will spur the NFL to look into better gear rather than rule changes that will ruin the game. The new kickoff rules will basically eliminate the impact of special teams on a game.
