Antonio Brown Returns To Camp With Raiders

Former Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin knows change is hard. But with newer safer helmets out there he said switching models makes perfect sense

Former Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin knows change is hard. But with newer safer helmets out there he said switching models makes perfect sense

The Oakland Raiders seem to be fed up with the antics of Antonio Brown. But there's also no getting around the fact his behavior seems to be growing increasingly weird.

The Raiders acquired Brown from the Steelers in March in exchange for draft picks.

In a recent column with Pro Football Talk, Peter King visited helmet manufacture Vicis - the company that makes the league's top-tested helmet.

It's ultimately uncertain if Brown will practice with the Raiders on Tuesday, considering his helmet issue remains up in the air. This helmet has kept him safe. In 2019, however, he has lost a grievance filing against the league that would allow him to still wear the helmet. That obviously is a drastic measure on the part of the Raiders because it would completely sever ties with Brown and could also influence future dealing with Rosenhaus, one of the more powerful agents in the National Football League, and his other clients down the road.

It's a bad scene and a sadder situation - one that raises the question, "Does Brown still want to play football?" "This is a major issue for him". Longtime Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin made the switch to a VICIS helmet late in his career, which reduced impact forces on the head by 30 to 40 percent compared to Brown's old model. As a result, Brown has two choices: he can agree to wear a new helmet, or find a Schutt Air Advantage helmet that was manufactured in 2010 or 2011. No practice or walkthrough was held.

General manager Mike Mayock told reporters as much Monday. Mayock met with the media following the team's practice.

He has scored 62 times for the Club in that time as well as winning the League 1 title, Championship title and Premier League title in Leicester City colours.

"Y'all know that AB is not here today, right?"

"So here's the bottom line: He's upset about the helmet issue". We have supported that.

"So from our perspective, it's time for him to be all in or all out", Mayock said.

"We're hoping he's back soon".

It appears the Oakland Raiders and Antonio Brown's camp have differing opinions when it comes to the state of the wide receiver's helmet dispute.
