Raiders’ Antonio Brown files helmet grievance against NFL

Oakland Raiders' Antonio Brown suffered extreme frostbite on his feet: Report

Brown reportedly has "troubled" the Raiders for a while due to a fixation to wear a helmet that no longer is approved by the NFL, NFL.com's Mike Silver reported Friday, citing sources. But Brown has attempted to use his old and outlawed model throughout training camp before his announcement on Friday. When players were first informed by the Raiders that the National Football League dismissed the one-year grace period for certain helmet models, such as the one Brown used, as a result of it failing laboratory testing for head-impact severity, Brown instantly pushed back. Suffice to say, neither of them have gone to Brown's lengths to continue wearing their old helmet.

Brown is set to have a hearing as early as next week, per Schefter.

Brown hasn't participated in a full practice during training camp.

If Brown wins in arbitration regarding the helmet, the ruling will open up the floodgates for every other player who takes issue with the new helmet regulations.

The Raiders declined to comment on the helmet situation with Schefter. But Brown, who practiced on his tender feet for only two days before leaving Napa to seek another opinion, tried yet again to sneak his old helmet onto the practice field, ultimately being told by team officials to remove it. The incident left him with frostbite on the soles of his feet, an image Brown posted to social media.

First, the 31-year-old requested a trade from the Steelers after a late-season fallout with Ben Roethlisberger and Pittsburgh's organization, which resulted in Brown being benched for the team's season finale. At this point, all the Raiders can do is remain in contact with Brown and wait for his feet to heal fully.

When the six-time All-Pro does eventually suit up, there's a new matter he'll be contending with - this time against the league itself.

Players like Brady were grandfathered in to being allowed to wear their banned helmet models (like the Patriots QB's Riddell VSR-4) in 2018.

From an uncomfortable cranium to frostbitten feet, Brown literally has issues from head to toe in 2019, and it's only August.
