Packers WR Jones: NFL needs to eliminate helmet-to-helmet rule
GREEN BAY - A Packers wide receiver believes that the NFL should relax rules against defenders smashing into his helmet with their helmet, a currently against-the-rules maneuver.
James Jones told NFL Network that if he could be the NFL's commissioner for a day, "I'm changing helmet-to-helmlet. I think the helmet-to-helmet rule, where defenders have to hit a certain target, I think they need to eliminate that."
The NFL has been tighetning rules against hits to the helmet, particularly with recent studies and lawsuits involving long-term effects of concussions on NFL players.
