PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- The NFL owners have approved a
communications device for defenses. By a vote of 25-to-7, with
offensive minded coaches voting against the device, the league
approved a plan where one defensive player at a time can wear a
helmet equipped like the one used by quarterbacks. Should that
player leave the game, another player can be designated to also
have the device.
Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher says the use of the devices doesn't
mean teams still won't use defensive signals.
