Patrick Peterson loves new crown-of-helmet rule
A slew of players have criticized the new rule making it illegal for runners or tacklers to lead with the crown-of-the-helmet. Patrick Peterson loves the rule, saying it will make the game safer and benefit players once their careers are over.
“The game has definitely changed, but I believe the commissioner is changing the game for the good,” Peterson said on ESPN 1100 in Las Vegas with Mitch Moss and Seat Williams, via SportsRadioInterviews.com.
“At the same time, these guys want to make the game as safe as possible, so [we] football players can have the longevity after our football careers. I think Roger Goodell is doing a great job trying to implement these rules and make the games as safe as possible. We don’t want to go out there spearing guys and running backs dropping their helmets and chests. I actually love the rule.”
“I think he is definitely going to make it in the league,” Peterson said. “He has a ton of potential to be the top guy in the league, as well. I just can’t wait to see what team is going to take a chance on him and pick him up in the 2013 draft.”
