Antonio Brown picks new helmet, turns dispute into endorsement deal with Xenith

Antonio Brown picks new helmet, turns dispute into endorsement deal with Xenith

Despite the distractions, Raiders coach Jon Gruden has insisted that Brown is "all in and ready to go".

Brown wasn't afraid to share his thoughts as he wrote Wednesday on Instagram: "When your own team want to hate but there's no stopping me now devil is a lie".

Brown also posted on Instagram a letter from Mike Mayock informing him he was being fined $13,950 for missing a walk-through on August 22.

The Raiders are now five days away from their season opener but still dealing with Brown's drama.

There were reports that Brown had gone "radio silent" with the team while figuring out a way to play the 2019 season with his old helmet. Your absence from practice was unexcused. Accordingly, you are hereby fined $13,950 pursuant to Article 42, Section 1 (a) (viii) of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement and the Raiders Club Discipline Schedule.

The US is not into the rocket failure of Iran, says Trump
Pompeo said the USA is imposing sanctions on the Iranian Space Agency and two related research centers, AFP reported. An Iranian government official said the explosion was caused by a technical error during a test launch.


In the picture Brown posted, he was fined for failing to participate in the Raiders' walk through on August 22, and he previously was fined on August 18 for missing the team's training camp.

When Brown missed training camp on August 18, Mayock sent him a clear message.

Here's a transcript of the letter Maytock sent to Brown informing him of the fines. But out of the gate, Brown could not start training camp with the Raiders due to a mysterious foot injury that turned out to be sustained during a cryotherapy treatment gone wrong. Why else threaten to quit over a helmet he knew was being phased out months and months ago?

Brown missed multiple mandatory workouts with the Raiders this offseason due to his infamous helmet dispute with the National Football League, and the team fined him for not being present.
