NFL fans are loving the new helmets that the Pittsburgh Steelers are experimenting with during OTAs.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are just one of several NFL teams trying out several new helmet designs built to better protect against concussions. Last year, the NFL approved a new helmet designed for quarterbacks by Vicis that lessens helmet-to-ground impact hits.

Ed Thompson of Steelers Now recently shared some images of the new helmets that the AFC North club is trying out. These are Vicis Zero2 models that are also designed to provide greater protection against concussions:

NFL fans were loving the new helmets, with one even suggesting that superstar edge-rusher TJ Watt give it a look:

The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a 10-win season that saw them reach the playoffs for the third time in four years. However, they were eliminated by Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills on Super Wild Card Weekend. The loss entended their franchise’s postseason losing streak to five games.

Mike Tomlin’s Steelers will open their 2024 season on the road against Kirk Cousins and the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 8.

Pittsburgh Steelers Will Look A Lot Different On Offense In 2024

The Steelers qualified for the postseason in 2024 despite using three different (and mediocre) quarterbacks in Kenny Pickett, Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph. All three of those are gone, with Russell Wilson (signed in free agency) and Justin Fields (acquired via trade with the Chicago Bears) replacing them.

Pittsburgh also traded star wide receiver Diontae Johnson to the Carolina Panthers in a surprise move. But they added veteran WR Van Jefferson and four-time Pro Bowler Cordarrelle Patterson to bolster their receiver depth. On top of that, GM Omar Khan added two promising youngsters on the o-line with Troy Fautanu and Zach Frazier, who were taken in rounds one and two, respectively.

We’ll see in the coming months if Pittsburgh’s offensive overhaul pays dividends.
