Best Answer

The green dot on his helmet indicates that he is wearing a helmet with speakers in it so the coach can comunicate with him on the field. The reason for the dot is so the refs can see who is wearing this type of helmet as it is a penalty to have more than one player on the field at a time wearing this type of helmet. If you notice, all quarterbacks in the NFL have a green dot on the back of their helmets.
