"Those gloves that they're using today — there's no way Odell Beckham would've made that catch without those gloves," Hall of Fame wideout Jerry Rice told USA Today in January. "Back in my day, we used to use those scuba diving gloves. Gloves just give you a different feel for the ball. I had 1,549 receptions and 22,895 yards. If I had the gloves they have today, I think everything would've doubled."
"When I first stepped into that locker room I looked across and there was Joe Montana and Ronnie Lott, all of these Hall of Famers and I'm in the room with these guys," Rice said. "At first it was like a deer in the headlights."
