Jon Gruden Breaks His Silence Regarding Antonio Brown's Helmet & Feet Controversy

Jon Gruden Breaks His Silence Regarding Antonio Brown's Helmet & Feet Controversy

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

The NFL is making the players wear these helmets because they're supposed to be safer. "I hated to put it on the shelf", he said on the radio program. Since the start of organized team activities in May, he has worn a Vicis helmet.

The news just keeps getting worse for Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown. Brown is also not allowed to show up to practice with out-dated equipment as he and the Raiders can be fined for the violation. Brown would be required, through his own testimony (which would be subject to rigorous cross examination) and the testimony of qualified experts, to show that the only reason the injury happened was because he was required to wear one of the helmets approved by the National Football League and the NFLPA and was prevented from wearing his outdated helmet of choice.

For the first 15 years of his career, Jason Witten wore two Air Advantage helmets by Schutt affectionately known as Betsy.

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". Brown believes the new certified helmet protrudes out and interferes with his vision as he tries to catch the football.

"The NFL, in conjunction with the NFLPA, five years ago began testing helmets and ranking them based on their purported safety". Go ahead and retire.' All that noise you made to get out of Pittsburgh to collect $30 million, now you're gonna forfeit it?

"I got a feeling he would play with no helmet; that's how much he loves to play". NFL Management Council general counsel Larry Ferazani and a representative of the NFL Player's Association along with Darren Heitner, Brown's legal aid, attended.
