Oakland Raiders management appears to have drawn a line in the sand with star receiver Antonio Brown, asking him if he is "all-in or all-out" after he missed practice once again amid a row with the National Football League over helmet safety. He left the team and briefly threatened to retire from football if he was not allowed to wear his preferred helmet but was back in camp soon after. This makes it seem as though there's a chance he doesn't want to practice without his helmet because he's genuinely concerned about safety issues. To say that AB is upset about the decision to not let him wear his helmet is accurate, but we're still processing it and figuring it out.
Antonio Brown filed a second grievance against the NFL in an attempt to wear a helmet deemed unsafe by a league-commissioned equipment committee, according to several reports Monday. The NFL and NFLPA got rid of the grace period after last season.Читайте также: ‘Disorganized’ storms moving toward coast could reach Carolinas as a tropical system
"He wore this helmet in Pee Wee football, high school football, college at Central Michigan, and his entire nine-year career", Drew Rosenhaus, Brown's agent, said during an appearance on ESPN. "The guy is hurt, he didn't do anything wrong, and the helmet thing is a personal matter to him".
Raiders head coach Jon Gruden previously voiced his support for the receiver. "This is a major issue for him". Brown had participated in the Raiders' walk-through on Saturday, but Mayock said Brown was not at practice on Sunday. In turn, that would have given us a better idea of the progress on his helmet issue. So, from our perspective, it's time for him to be all in or all out. We appreciate that. But at this point, we've pretty much exhausted all avenues of relief. "We haven't figured it out, yet", Rosenhaus continued. "And we hope AB's going to be a big part of it starting Week 1 against Denver".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
