Former NFL safety Rodney Harrison believes he would have played 20 years in the league with the new offseason rules that are now in place.
“They’ve cut down on a lot of these hits in minicamps, training camps and padded practices and all the physical contact during the season,” Harrison told NESN.com. “If I were playing right now in this era, I could probably play 20 years because we wouldn’t have all of those physical contact practices.
“I think there comes a point in time where you have to understand. We’re different than basketball, we’re different than baseball. We hit every single day and your body needs a break, your head needs a break. So I think they’re making steps in the right direction.”
