Raiders WR Antonio Brown Is Threatening To Retire If He Can't Wear His Old Helmet
© Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Friday, Oakland Raiders star WR Antonio Brown has told the Oakland Raiders he will not play football again unless he can wear his old helmet...
quote:

Brown had a two-hour conference call with an independent arbitrator on Friday, sources said, to argue why he should be allowed to wear his 10-year-old helmet. He is thought to have been using the same helmet his whole career.

The arbitrator for the grievance call was joined by league officials, player representatives and NFLPA representatives in Philadelphia, a source told ESPN. A decision could come as early as next week, sources said.

Brown wants to wear the helmet he prefers, not one of the newer-model helmets that league rules mandate, league sources said. Brown believes the new certified helmet protrudes out and interferes with his vision as he tries to catch the football.

He has a $30 million guaranteed money contact that he is threatening to walk out on. I think he must already have a head injury.

I would cut him, and not pay him...

If you cut him, you kinda have to pay him when the contract say the money is guaranteed. In any event, no one should feel sorry for the raiders. He showed signs of being a head case months ago.

He is worth $30 million. He will be financially OK when they send him down the road. The NFL does not like their players questioning them and will have their meeting, then boot him.

This is easy. NFL either needs to say either you’re wearing it if not you can retire, or you can sign this here waiver that says when you get brain damage at and dementia by 55 you can’t sue the NFL. Have to be careful what you wish for, players union wanted to sue NFL for dangerous plays, now it’s touch football and eventually will be gone.
