Antonio Brown and Tom Brady aren't happy about helmet switch

Mahomes plays one drive instead of a quarter after Chiefs' touchdown

What started as Brown missing time with frostbite has morphed into Brown threatening retirement over a helmet.

"The helmet thing is a personal matter to him", coach Jon Gruden said Saturday.

The NFL does not permit players to use helmets that are not certified by the National Operating Committee for Standards and Athletic Equipment, and that committee does not certify helmets with designs more than 10 years old.

"Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown's side warned the NFL during a grievance hearing Friday that if he suffered a head injury in a helmet that he is compelled to wear, he would hold the league liable, a source with knowledge of the hearing said".

It's perhaps understandable that Brown preferred this helmet for its lightweight functionality rather than its safety, but it's just hard from the outside how he could make any type of legal case for it if he did wind up getting hurt with a new NFL-approved helmet. The league, however, allowed players one extra year - last season - to transition.


"I love the game; I love the hustle; young-in got doe he can leave the league but if I leave will the fans still gone love me man?"

Brown has reportedly threatened to retire over the rule banning his favorite model, and Brady is also struggling with the change.

The Oakland Raiders traded for wide receiver Antonio Brown this offseason knowing he's been known to stir it up a little bit. The absence, though not fully clear, is bound have some reference to the new helmet rule.

The Raiders finally got their minds off of the Brown situation when they took the field on Saturday night and defeated the Los Angeles Rams 14-3. He enjoyed a good season in 2018 with with 104 receptions for 1,297, and a career-high 15 touchdown, before being drafted into the Raiders' side in 2019.
