Antonio Brown was wearing a certified helmet at Raiders practice

20 things I learned from Raiders training camp

Raiders general manager Mike Mayock gave Antonio Brown an ultimatum, and it appears for now the star wide receiver is playing ball.

Though Tuesday's practice was just a walk-through, it was noteworthy that Brown didn't have a helmet with him at all for the media-viewing window.

His willingness to practice in a certified helmet, that is not his preference, has been unknown.

Head coach Jon Gruden said AB ran fast and cut strong and cleanly changed direction, showing no ill effects of once frostbitten feet.

"He's all-in, ready to go", Gruden said.

According to Rapoport, an arbitrator will listen to the case by the end of the week which sets up for a timely resolution to the ongoing helmet dispute that has plagued Brown's offseason. "He's a great player".

Castillo was a second baseman who pitched for the Florida Marlins in his his first major league game in 1996. Further details about the arrests - including the specific charges - were not immediately released.

Perhaps the message was received. The league then put that helmet model through testing and determined that it is not approved for use.

Brown had 686 catches and 9,145 yards receiving the past six seasons in Pittsburgh, the best marks ever for a receiver in a six-year span.

Gruden told reporters that there's been "no distractions" for him or the team concerning Brown, whose second grievance hearing with the National Football League will be presided by the same arbitrator from his first hearing and is scheduled for Friday morning, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson.

As Gruden said, Brown is indeed a great player, and although the seven-time Pro Bowler missed large chunks of practice time during camp, he has still made good progress in the Raiders system. Not so, he insisted.

"I hate to break it to anybody, but we've known the status regarding his feet", Gruden said. He just showed up with frost bite. I never had a guy show up with frost bite. Fortunately we got that thing under control. It's something that is really important to him. And there's nothing wrong with supporting your players, on things that they believe in.

Oakland Raiders' Antonio Brown carries his helmet as he walks off the field after practice on Tuesday. "We also understand the league's position, but I'm confident that he's going to be a heck of a player for us and be ready to roll".
