Another day in the NFL… More Antonio Brown drama… What a shocker.
Source (NFL) – Oakland Raiders superstar wide receiver Antonio Brown had his grievance over his helmet denied by an arbitrator, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Monday, per sources. After a prolonged battle in hopes of being able to wear his old helmet, Brown will have to wear an NFL-approved helmet this season — barring a long-shot legal challenge, Pelissero added.

If Brown refuses to wear an NFL-mandated helmet, he will be unable to play or get a paycheck. USA Today’s Mike Jones first reported the arbitrator’s ruling. Mum on the helmet issue since it came to light on Friday, Brown issued a statement via Twitter on Monday following news of ruling.
So turns out he might play after all? Who knows with this guy.
