New helmet designed to keep football players safe

Researchers have developed a new device designed to keep football players safe.

It's called the Guardian Cap. It is a helmet with extra padding that is supposed to decrease the amount of impact if a football player is tackled hard or falls.

Some football coaches are worried about the helmet. They say it gives players a false sense of security. They say coaches should be focusing on teaching players how to tackle correctly and stay safe.
