Tuck dealt with that problem last season, when he suspected opponents were attempting to aggravate a neck injury by sticking their hands in his helmet and yanking.
That's why Tuck went with a busier facemask design last October that included six horizontal bars as opposed to the standard four.
Now Tuck is going next level with the whole operation, apparently determined to turn his head into a fortress of solitude.

As the fine folks at Uni-Watch.com show us, the number of horizontal bars is now down to five, but Tuck also has 12 diagonal bars doing all sorts of business in front of his face.
The message is clear: "Feel free to aggravate my neck burner boys, but the remnants of your fingers are mine forever."
