The NFL has prohibited players from wearing certain helmet models that did not perform well in safety testing Derek Rivers Jersey , and one of those models is the one Tom Brady has worn for years. But Brady isn’t giving his helmet up easily.

Brady says he’s going to take advantage of the NFL’s grandfather policy that will allow players who wore the Riddell VSR-4 helmet in 2017 to wear it again in 2018. He says he likes the helmet, he’s comfortable with it, and doesn’t want to give it up.

“It’s a good thing. They’re trying to find helmets the players will wear that will absorb force better. I think that’s a positive,” Brady said Otis Sistrunk Jersey , via ESPN. “I still wear a very old helmet, probably out of habit. 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.”

Although no new players will be allowed to use the helmet model Rakeem Nunez-Roches Jersey , Brady is allowed to keep wearing it this season, and he will. For a player who’s conscious of his health, it’s a curious choice.

The Seattle Seahawks are hoping Sebastian Janikowski can solve their kicking issues.

The team signed Janikowski on Friday amid a number of moves.

Seattle also signed quarterback Stephen Morris to have another arm on the roster behind Russell Wilson. Running back J.D. McKissic and defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson signed their exclusive rights free agent contracts for the 2018 season.

Janikowski spent 17 seasons with the Oakland Raiders but missed the 2017 season due to a back injury. Janikowski, 40 Tony Gonzalez Jersey , has made 80.4 percent of his kicks during his career and holds the NFL record with 55 field goals of 50 yards or longer.

Janikowski will join former Jacksonville kicker Jason Myers in the competition to replace Blair Walsh, who was inconsistent in his one season as the Seahawks kicker last year.

Morris spent time with three teams during the regular season and was with Washington earlier this offseason before being released this month. Seattle had no other quarterbacks on the roster since Trevone Boykin was released late last month.

McKissic developed into Seattle's third-down running back for part of last season. McKissic appeared in 13 games and had three touchdowns. He averaged 4.1 yards per carry in limited work as a ball carrier, but was most effective as a pass catcher. McKissic had 34 catches, fifth-best on the team.
