Saints offensive lineman Zach Strief tells WWL's Kristian Garic that despite the outcry from fans about the new "helmet rule,” he thinks it is a rational safety measure.

“I'm never going to disagree with a rule that is designed to increase the safety of the game,” Strief said. “I think there's one overwhelming thing that's kind of been overlooked, and that's the actual reading of the rule...You cannot lead with the crown of your helmet. If you're trying to prevent running backs from lowering their head, not to protect themselves, not to lower their pads..but purely in order to make contact with the top of their head, I'm very much in support of it.”

Strief acknowledges, though, that it’s going to be a hard rule to officiate.
