This might not be that much of a problem, but Brown tried the approved helmets and didn't like them. But Brown is taking on a tough look by making such a big to-do about his helmet, especially considering he's set to enter his first season with a new team. "And the helmet thing is a personal matter to him...and we're supporting him", Gruden said on Saturday night. "My last helmet, I wore in four Super Bowls, so it was a pretty great helmet for me, and I hated to put it on the shelf, but that was what they said to do, so I'm dealing with it and working with something else".

Brown has worn the old style of helmet all throughout OTAs this season, in hopes it could lead to the National Football League legalizing the model.

Brown isn't the only superstar who isn't thrilled about the new helmet rules.

The NFL reports also suggested that any player using the banned helmets would open himself for a disciplinary action. I'm excited. I've got some plays for him.

Jeffrey Epstein's manner of death 'pending further information,' coroner says
The medical examiner's office in Manhattan confirmed Epstein's death. "This is routine practice", Sampson said in the statement. Barr said in a statement he was "appalled" at hearing the news and said it raised "serious questions that must be answered".

And if Brady can do it, so can Brown, especially due to safety concerns as concussions have become such a large topic throughout the world of sports.

Antonio Brown gave us all a nice bit of theater on Friday afternoon in the form of a Hall of Fame tweet thread from Mike Silver and then immediately thereafter news from Adam Schefter that the wide receiver would consider retirement if he had to play with a new helmet. The absence, though not fully clear, is bound have some reference to the new helmet rule.

The grievance hearing was held in Philadelphia, the report noted, and included Darren Heitner, Brown's counsel, Brown (via phone), NFL Management Council general counsel Larry Ferazani and an NFLPA representative. 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.
