The model that Rodgers has worn for his entire career is no longer approved for use in the NFL, but unlike Brown, the veteran passer isn't raising hell about it.
"There's a connection to a helmet, for sure," Rodgers said to Tom Silverstein and Ryan Wood of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I loved my helmet, and every one that I've worn. I don't know that I would want to retire if I couldn't wear my helmet. I obviously didn't because I'm here today. I'm sure (Brown) can find one that he really likes."
With the Schutt AiR XP Pro helmet he wore in the past now prohibited by the NFL, Rodgers is choosing between an approved Schutt model and a VICIS helmet. He's yet to decide between the two, but said "it's not difficult at all" to make a switch.
Meanwhile, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said Rodgers will play a quarter or so in Thursday's Week 2 preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens.
