Antonio Brown Upset About His Helmet, Files Grievance With NFL

Antonio Brown Upset About His Helmet, Files Grievance With NFL”

A source told Silver the bigger issue, obviously, is with Brown's feet, his helmet fixation and his going AWOL.

Brown wants be allowed to wear the helmet he prefers, not one of the helmets that league rules mandate, league sources said.

The helmet, which Brown wore during his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers is no longer NOCSAEW certified and that caused Brown to leave an OTA day in frustration after he asked for his old helmet and was told he couldn't have it. According to reports at the time, each team's equipment manager had been instructed to remove all banned helmets. When he showed up for the first OTA, however, Brown requested his old helmet.

Antonio Brown's tenure with the Raiders is off to a frosty start. He was again told it was not allowed and replaced it with the new version.

Antonio Brown has an issue but it's not one a pediatrist can solve. "He hasn't been here for awhile, and no one knows where he's at".

That's the only part of the Brown foot saga that is concrete thus far, because the timeline for his return from the injury itself sure isn't. Brown is considered arguably the best receiver in football, and has caught over 100 balls for over 1,000 yards in each of the last six seasons. Brown, according to witnesses, typically glances at the screens of several tablets and his smart phone during meetings, distracting himself by engaging in activities which include perusing his bank accounts and "liking" photos on Instagram.

And so, we come to Brown's potential retirement if the helmet issue doesn't go his way.
