The NFL continues to promote player safety and talk about that being of the utmost importance. In Green Bay that might take a back seat to investments.
Former Giants lineman David Diehl, who is a paid representative for XTech Protective Equipment, insinuated that for a team that sustained so many shoulder injuries, not to at the very least allow XTech to be presented to its players, is risking Packers player’s health.
Super Bowl winning coach Brian Billick said, “I allowed my guys to choose, within reason, what would work best for them in their training and equipment”.
Now I’m not suggesting that the Packers are doing anything wrong but it does raise an eyebrow. As we all know, the mere appearance of impropriety can be enough to get you convicted in the court of public opinion. When it comes to injuries on the football field, especially to star players, in Green Bay it would be considered by many, heinous.
