Teammates have taken notice and could be seen going in for a closer examination in between minicamp drills. Newcomer and defensive tackle Shaun Rogers is even going as far as to say each defensive lineman should have his own customized look.
“Shaun Rogers was saying the other day all the defensive linemen should have different cages,” Skiba said. “He’s just creating work for me. But it’s funny because they see Justin’s mask and then Justin is like, ‘No, no, that’s my mask, that’s my mask.’”
Meanwhile, Skiba says Jason Pierre-Paul is happy with his ROPO-DW facemask, which isn’t anything too crazy.
But that doesn’t mean there won’t be more to come when training camp rolls around next month. Skiba hinted there will be something more for Tuck, Canty and the rest of the group that will be “painstaking” for the manufacturer.
“I have something planned in the near future,” Skiba said. “It will be very interesting to do. It’s just like anything else, we have a backup for Justin already because this thing has already taken on a life of its own. It’s all over the place already, so maybe in Albany we’ll break something out for Albany. Then opening day we’ll break out something for opening day.”
