Antonio Brown reported to training camp on Tuesday, but he brought his good friend and agent Drew Rosenhaus with him. When speaking with reporters, Rosenhaus claimed that Brown’s absence was more about his foot issue than his helmet kerfuffle (Twitter link via Vic Tafur of The Athletic).
According to the agent, Brown’s return was not linked to Monday’s loss in arbitration that barred Brown from wearing the same headgear. Instead, Rosenhaus says it’s all coincidental – he claims Brown returned on Tuesday because his off-site treatment just recently wrapped up.
For those still tuned in on Brown’s helmet saga – if Brown finds a helmet with the same design that he feels comfortable with, he may be permitted to wear it. However, that helmet will be subject to testing and the approval of NFL and NFLPA officials (Twitter link via Peter King of NBC Sports).
