Last week, reports surfaced that Brown would refuse to play football ever again, if he was forced to wear the new league-mandated helmet.

Antonio Brown suggested he will rejoin the Raiders soon after losing his grievance against the NFL.

Gruden played it cool and played it perfectly on Saturday night, offering Brown full support on the helmet issue while absolving him of wrong doing as it relates to his odd foot injury.

It's perhaps understandable that Brown preferred this helmet for its lightweight functionality rather than its safety, but it's just hard from the outside how he could make any type of legal case for it if he did wind up getting hurt with a new NFL-approved helmet.

Schefter had previously reported that Brown had a two-hour conference call with league officials on Friday to argue why he should be allowed to wear the helmet he prefers, and not one the league requires. NOCSAE's rule has been that no helmets older than 10 years can be worn. "I've got some plays for him and I hope I can start calling them".

"The player can't practice or play in games with equipment that's not approved", National Football League spokesperson Brian McCarthy said in a statement.

The 31-year-old has certainly had a tumultuous offseason, to say the least. Barring an appeal to federal court, Brown must wear an approved helmet or remain on the sideline. An arbitrator ruled against Brown on Monday, according to Mike Jones of USA Today. I hated to put it on the shelf. The other part is psychological, pushing the right buttons to get the best out of a particular player. "I'm not saying you can't throw the ball quickly to Brown - we know the Steelers did a ton of receiver screens - but that's not a foundation to your offense".
