Derek Carr may have a new look in 2021.
The Las Vegas Raiders’ quarterback was wearing a newly-designed helmet in a recent OTA session. It is not known if Carr will wear the helmet during the 2021 season, but it appears there is a chance he may.

The new VICIS ZERO2 debuted during the NFL and NFLPA’s safety tests this spring.
The helmet is designed to give players as much protection and safety as possible. It’s also pretty cool looking! It will be interesting to see if Carr does wear it this season and how many other players around the league do so as well.
