Antonio Brown and Tom Brady aren't happy about helmet switch

Antonio Brown wants to wear a trusty old helmet. The NFL says no. The wide receiver probably isn't going to win this battle

"If he doesn't play or practice he is in breach of his contract and doesn't get paid".

The specific helmet Brown wants to wear, is over 10 years old.

But...if Gruden was frustrated by all the reports and the distance Brown reportedly went, per Silver, to continue using the Schutt Air Advantage helmet, he kept that inside.

Brown, 31, filed a formal grievance against the NFL over a rule that requires players to wear helmets that have been certified by the National Operating Committee for Standards and Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) to protect against possible head injury, according to multiple reports. Barring an appeal to federal court, Brown must wear an approved helmet or remain on the sideline. He reportedly had previously told the team that he would not play football again if not allowed to wear his preferred helmet.

Brown, who has missed almost all of Raiders training camp with frostbite, took to social media after the arbitrator's decision. We understand the league's position as well, so we're in a tough spot.

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. "But I'm not gonna put words in anybody's mouth", Gruden said. Aside from this incident, the Raiders are going to be in for an interesting season. "I'm excited about this season [and] appreciate all the concerns about my feet!" I know that some people are [joking about] it, but it's really not a laughing matter.

"It was a total accident and injury that he's looking to get right from, and hopefully, with all the people that have seen it, that he's gotten it cured, and he's ready to roll".
