NFL Slams the Door on Antonio Brown's Helmet Saga

NFL Slams the Door on Antonio Brown's Helmet Saga”

When Antonio Brown, wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders, refused to play without wearing his 12-year old helmet, he was sure would be able to win his case.

It was reported Friday that Brown wouldn't want to continue playing without his favorite helmet - a "Schutt Air Advantage" that is not NOSCSAE certified and no longer produced by manufacturers. I can't say I agree with all of them, certainly, but I support this guy. It really wasn't his fault, and it's a serious injury. Because now you've forced him into wearing a different type of helmet.

In the previous season, Brown completed 10,000 career receiving yards in the opening game, becoming the second fastest National Football League player to achieve the milestone, behind Calvin Johnson. "And I think at that point, though, the liability will be dramatic".

Brown has reportedly filed a grievance with the league.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was among the last players adjusting to the NFL's new helmet rules and admitted that he is still working to get used to it, he said on WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show".

He has also been limited to two practices during training camp because of frostbite on his feet, which the 31-year-old is said to have suffered after entering a cryotherapy chamber with incorrect footwear. Go ahead and retire.' All that noise you made to get out of Pittsburgh to collect $30 million, now you're gonna forfeit it? The league, however, allowed players one extra year - last season - to transition. Asked in a press conference about Brown rejoining the Raiders in the next week, he replied: "Man, I hope so". If arguably the greatest football player of all time is sensibly adapting to the new rules, so should Brown.
