Antonio Brown loses helmet grievance against the NFL

Antonio Brown loses helmet grievance against the NFL”

An independent arbitrator is set to make a decision on Brown's grievance as soon as this week, according to reports.

Brown is in a massive feud with the league over his favorite Schutt helmet. with the NFL barring the superstar wide out from wearing the headgear he's donned for the past decade. If Brown follows through on his threat and retires from football or voluntarily sits out of team activities, he would void a three-year, $50 million contract that is set to pay him $30 million in guaranteed money over the next two seasons.

The NFL does not permit players to use helmets that are not certified by the National Operating Committee for Standards and Athletic Equipment, and that committee does not certify helmets with designs more than 10 years old.

According to published reports, the 31-year-old Brown feels the new helmets certified by the NFL interfere with his vision as he attempts to catch football. "They don't certify equipment that's old than 10 years", McCarthy posted.

The NFL and NFLPA added 11 helmets to their joint list of approved models for the 2019 season. "We understand the league's position as well, so we're in a tough spot", the coach later stated.

"It's been a long time coming, so I knew like anybody, the rules are the rules so you've got to evolve with them", Witten said. "I hated to put it on the shelf", he said on the radio program.

"While I disagree with the arbitrator's decision, I'm working on getting back to full health and looking forward to rejoining my teammates on the field", Brown wrote on Twitter and Instagram. "I think that's what needs to be said", Gruden told the media. "And I've got a feeling he would play with no helmet - that's how much he loves to play". It was a total accident.
