New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck will be wearing a new foul-proof facemask when the season starts.
It’s designed to send a message to opponents: “Go ahead, just try to stick your fingers inside. I’ll take them with me.”
The new design has five horizontal bars and 12 diagonal bars. He wore it during a workout.
Tuck introduced an upgraded facemask last October when he suspected opponents tried to aggravate his neck injury by sticking their fingers in his old facemask and pulling. It looked like a grill.
So the new design for the 2012-13 season is clearly over-the-top.
If that doesn’t work, he could always try “The Silence of the Lambs” look.
