Antonio Brown Announces Playing Decision For 2019 Following Helmet Ruling

The football future of Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown is in doubt

It got to the point where ESPN reported that Brown would consider retirement if he couldn't wear the preferred helmet.

According to NFL Network, Brown tried to use his old helmet at Raiders practices, but the paint didn't quite match up. The NFL's decision means that Brown must wear one of those helmets, or sit out like he threatened.

The New England Patriots quarterback's old Riddell VSR-4 helmet was among several the NFL officially outlawed this year due to their failure to pass the league's safety tests, ending the grace period that allowed Brady, Brown and a few others to wear the helmets last year. The NFL began enforcing bans on de-certified helmet models this season.

Last week, reports surfaced that Brown would refuse to play football ever again, if he was forced to wear the new league-mandated helmet. Brown is basically saying he won't play in a helmet he doesn't like and he isn't going to risk a breach in his contract while the matter is being sorted out.

National Football League players are being forced to wear new helmets, something many of them aren't too happy about.

Brown has had a somewhat disruptive summer since being traded, missing a significant portion of training camp and practice in the offseason. Raiders coach Jon Gruden defended his lightning-rod receiver Saturday.

"He has a strong feeling about what he's worn on his head, and we're supporting him. I'm excited. I got some plays for him, I hope we can start calling them".

Just after it was released that the arbitrator decided not to allow the older style of helmet, Brown took to his twitter account, where he states that he's going to rejoin his teammates on the field after getting back to full health. I can't say I agree with all of them, certainly, but I support this guy. It was a total accident.
