Antonio Brown To Report To Raiders

Antonio Brown is back in the fold. Days after threatening to retire if the NFL did not clear him to wear his favorite helmet, and hours after losing his arbitration case, Brown has informed the team that he will report to the club for training camp on Tuesday (Twitter link via Michael Gehlken of the Review-Journal). 

Furthermore, Brown’s foot – which was negatively impacted by a cryotherapy session gone awry – is not considered to be a long-term impediment. With that, Brown is set to hit the ground running with ample practice time before his real Raiders debut against the Broncos on Sept. 9.

Brown seemed to be extremely dug in on the helmet issue, but it’s now “very unlikely” that he will appeal the arbitrator’s decision. All now seems to be well in Oakland, especially after Jon Gruden voiced support for the 31-year-old.

Meanwhile, Brown may wind up with his favorite helmet after all. The NFL will let Brown wear the Schutt AiR Advantage, if he can find one that is less than ten years old (Twitter link via PFT’s Mike Florio). AB, apparently, will leave no stone unturned in his search:

    “I’ll retire if they don’t certify my helmet” *NFL/NFLPA receive ruling, denying him his request* Antonio Brown: What time should I report to camp?

    This signifies that the Raiders will be losers once agin this season. On the plus side, Gruden only has 8 more years to over spend of nutcases and blow through the ‘poor man’ Davis’ cash. AB, Burrfict, and the physco guard; Great haul Johhny.

    The lunacy and constant fights with Carr and Gruden when he doesn’t get the ball enough are going to be glorious to watch this year.

    Mr Big Wind so tight he’s asking for a helmet trade. Get on ebay, cheapskate or maybe how bout offering one of your fur coats or season tickets?

    The headline “Antonio Brown To Report to Raiders” reminds me of the Chris Rock “I take care of my kids!!!” bit.

    Only with Mr. Big Chest would a player under contract reporting to the team he is under contract with be a headline.
