During the preseason, Brady admitted he was initially “very resistant” to the switch.
He noted there were a “few little tweaks” he’d like to make to the new helmet, including adjusting its facemask.
The Riddle Precision Fit SpeedFlex ranked third in the NFL’s list of helmets that best reduce impact severity.
Brady has never been formally diagnosed with a concussion, though his wife, Gisele Bündchen, said in a May interview he has suffered multiple, including one during the 2016-17 season.
Brady is one of several NFL players who have to change their helmets by the start of next season after 10 styles were banned by the league for performing poorly in laboratory research testing for impact severity.
Tom needs to protect that brain if he truly intends on playing til he’s 45.
