NFL Slams the Door on Antonio Brown's Helmet Saga

NFL Slams the Door on Antonio Brown's Helmet Saga

On Monday, Adam Schefter tweeted that an arbitrator ruled against Brown's grievance to wear his old helmet.

On Friday, Brown had a two-hour conference call with an independent arbitrator to argue why he should be allowed to wear his older helmet, which he is thought to have been using his entire career. Brown has worn the same type of helmet for 10 years and, according to ESPN, wants to keep it that way instead of using a newer model helmet mandated by the league.

It is clear, though, that the National Football League is not going to budge over the reason he is not with the team, which according to reports, is a helmet dispute. "My last helmet, I wore it the last four Super Bowls, so it was a pretty great helmet for me". Without mentioning Brown by name, McCarthy stated: "The player can't practice or play in games with equipment that's not approved".

Raiders coach Jon Gruden said he supports the player, who opened camp on the Non-Football Injury List and has participated in one pre-practice walkthrough, on July 28, before being limited on July 30.

Antonio Brown formally lost his grievance to wear an outdated helmet on Monday and didn't retire over it.

Antonio Brown took part in Oakland's offseason workouts and then showed up to training camp on time last month, arriving in Napa Valley via hot air balloon. We understand the league's position as well, so we're in a tough spot.

"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'm excited about this season [and] appreciate all the concerns about my feet!" I hated to put it on the shelf. "I've been experimenting with a couple different ones, and I don't really love the one that I'm in, but I don't really have much of a choice".
