“Everybody asks about the facemask,” Dockett said loudly. “Stein,” he said, using the nickname of nearby assistant equipment manager Steve Christensen, “what do we tell them about the facemask? We came in here and it was just sitting in the locker. Stein put it on.”
Dockett shook his head. “That ain’t even the one,” he said. “This is the practice one. The game one, aww (expletive.)”
Then Dockett played it straight. He said a company is trying to get him to endorse their product. Dockett got the chance to develop something he wanted. “It’s something to play with,” he said. “We’re getting the designs right, the weight down on it, all of that.
“It’s kind of like a custom car.”
Dockett isn’t sure if he’ll change for sure. But he said he likes this look and emphasized vision is not a problem. “I can see through it,” Dockett said. “I mean, I ain’t got that much to see. I’m not a running back or receiver. I just have to see straight ahead.”
