To this end, the fitting and maintenance of the players helmets and shoulder pads is a big part of this. Included with the helmet and shoulder pads, the footwear is another important aspect of the player's equipment that the Equipment Manager assists with. The uniform worn by the players would be one of the other major components of the items that an NFL Equipment Manager oversees for his team.
