If Tom Brady wants to continue to  play in the NFL in 2019, he’s going to have find a new helmet to wear. 

In a joint announcement on Friday, the NFL and NFLPA released a list of helmets that have been approved for play in 2019, and Brady’s didn’t make the cut.

Back in May, Brady kind of hinted that he probably wouldn’t end up making a helmet change until he had to. 

“I still wear a very old helmet, probably out of habit,” Brady said, via ESPN.com. “You talk about behavioral changes are hard; I’ve tried new helmets and I’m like, ‘Doesn’t work, get that out of here!’ You just have to get comfortable with it.”

Tom actually went back to his old helmet last season. 

According to Jeff Miller, the NFL’s executive vice president of health and safety initiatives, teams will be punished if any player is caught using a banned helmet. 

“The prohibited helmets will not be allowed in the locker room,” Miller said Friday, via the Washington Post. “A player will not be allowed on the field [wearing such a helmet] 

He may just have to find some new confetti to put in his new helmet.
