AB would blame National Football League if injured after helmet switch

AB would blame National Football League if injured after helmet switch

Brown reportedly has threatened to quit football if he is not allowed to wear his old helmet.

The NFL is making the players wear these helmets because they're supposed to be safer.

"On a conference call with reporters earlier this spring, Jeff Miller, the NFL's executive vice president of health and safety initiatives, said that any team found to have known about a player wearing a banned helmet or to have facilitated the use of one would be subject to league discipline", the report said. "I hated to put it on the shelf", he said on the radio program.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown is away from the Oakland Raiders training camp, and it's unclear when he will report back to the franchise's Napa Valley headquarters.

You probably didn't think it could get any more ridiculous when you learned frostbite was keeping Antonio Brown off the practice fields.

Brady said he'd been wearing the same helmet since at least 2004.

McCarthy didn't mention Brown by name when he tweeted: "The player can't practice or play in games with equipment that's not approved".

It was reported Friday that Brown wouldn't want to continue playing without his favorite helmet - a "Schutt Air Advantage" that is not NOSCSAE certified and no longer produced by manufacturers. "They don't certify equipment that's old (er) than 10 years".

Brown responded by filing a grievance against the National Football League, demanding to wear his 12-year old Schutt Air Advantage, a model that has been out of production for several years.

The source also pointed out the fact that across his decade in the league, Brown had suffered only one concussion.

"I got a feeling he would play with no helmet; that's how much he loves to play".
