Defensive end Dwight Freeney tried one Monday for about 30 minutes. Tight end Dallas Clark, who has had multiple concussions in his career, has been fitted. So, too, have center Jeff Saturday and offensive lineman Ryan Diem.
“Clark loved it,” said Simpson, who is in a partnership with accomplished auto racing team owner Chip Ganassi on the venture. “It’s significantly better in impacts than what they have been using.”
