Late last week, Brown made it clear that he has no intention of playing unless he gets to wear his trusty 10-year-old helmet, which has since outlawed by the league and NFLPA to increase player safety.
I suppose that's where I'm at right now as it relates to Antonio Brown and the helmet news that has dominated the national conversation since it broke on Friday.
Brown's unpredictable nature, and an ESPN report that he threatened retirement over the helmet issue, heightened the attention surrounding Brown's absence from Raiders camp.
Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus said they had located one that has been manufactured since 2010 and that it was just a matter of getting it reconditioned and re-certified.
"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", Brady said in his Monday interview with radio station WEEI.
Brown tweeted about the decision Monday afternoon, focusing on the upcoming season. "I'm excited about this season appreciate all the concerns about my feet!" NOCSAE's rule has been that no helmets older than 10 years can be worn.
The Cardinals coach was asked if he had ever found a helmet that would force him to consider leaving football behind - and his response was hilarious. He was acquired from the Pittsburgh Steelers in March and promptly given a three-year, $50.125 million contract.
Brown suffered frostbite on his feet doing cryotherapy.
"Hopefully we're going to get this behind us soon", Rosenhaus said.
