Antonio Brown lost the helmet battle, but he may have won the helmet war


Oakland Raiders wide catcher, Antonio Brown, has lost his second grievance hearing with the NFL and will not be able to wear the Schutt Air Advantage helmet that he has worn throughout his career.

But he might still have had a victory over the noise he put on his helmet.

Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, met yesterday with Sirius XM NFL Radio and said his client had received "several" offers of support from helmet companies who wanted to make him a new one. helmet.

Rosenhaus confirmed that Brown had lost the second grievance and said that his efforts to wear his old helmet were passing.

"This door is closed," said Rosenhaus. "On the bright side, because of all the publicity generated by all our efforts to get this helmet on, he has received many offers from different helmet companies to make him a helmet and pay him a little bit of money. 39; money.

"So we found, without going into details, very appropriate alternatives."

Rosenhaus said Brown would not miss a moment with the Raiders, who start their regular season at home against the Denver Broncos on September 9th.

"It's a happy ending, even though it will no longer be able to wear the old helmet," Rosenhaus said.

And although he lost grievance hearings with the NFL, Brown went to Instagram to monitor the league on Sunday.

"Mr. Outrageous (do not tell me what I can do)," he writes as a caption of a photo of him shown to show him wearing a much older football helmet than the one for which he had asked to the league to wear.
