(I think only the QBs have them).
Is it to wipe the sweat or something… ?
The ones who handle the ball (QBs, receivers, running backs) usually have them — it’s to dry the sweat off their hands so that the ball doesn’t slip out of their hands.
Some its superstition, like Boobie Miles in Friday Night Lights, mostly its just so quarterbacks can dry their hands.
I think you’re referring to the hand warmers. Well, it’s to warm their hands. When they use a towel, it is usually to wipe sweat and mud that might make the ball slippery.
It is for sweat. When I played in highschool I had one because I thought it was cool. But, yeah, it is for sweat, mud, blood, beer from a Lambeau Leap…
It depends on many factors
