Antonio Brown’s new helmet fails test; receiver reacts with harsh tweet “Here’s the bottom line,” Mayock said. “He’s upset about the helmet issue. We have supported that, we appreciate that. At this point, we’ve pretty much exhausted all avenues of relief. So, from our perspective it’s time for him to be all in or all out. We’re hoping he’s back soon.”The helmet Brown wore with the Steelers is no longer on the NFL’s approved list. He lost an arbitration appeal to use the old model, and reportedly threatened to retire if he couldn’t use the helmet. Related News The NFL and Brown had reached a compromise which would have allowed him to use the helmet model he likes if he could find one made within the past 10 years. But, the league reversed that decision earlier Sunday after the helmet went through additional testing, according to ProFootballTalk.The Raiders acquired Brown from the Steelers in March in exchange for draft picks. He caught 74 touchdown passes and made seven Pro Bowls during his nine seasons with Pittsburgh.”We’ve got 89 guys busting their tails,” Mayock said. “We’re really excited about where this franchise is going and we hope A.B. is going to be a big part of it, starting Week 1 against Denver.
