Late last week, Brown made it clear that he has no intention of playing unless he gets to wear his trusty 10-year-old helmet, which has since outlawed by the league and NFLPA to increase player safety.

Just when you thought the Antonio Brown helmet saga was over, it has new life.

Brown sought to wear his old helmet, which is no longer certified by the National Operating Committee for Standards and Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE).

Last week, reports surfaced that Brown would refuse to play football ever again, if he was forced to wear the new league-mandated helmet. Brady, who has worn a Riddell-VSR4 throughout his career, was one of 32 players whose helmets were banned. Brown, who reportedly threatened to quit if he didn't win the battle, reacted in a tweet.

"I've been experimenting with a couple different ones, and I don't really love the one that I'm in, but I don't really have much of a choice", Brady said Monday on the "The Greg Hill Show" on sports radio WEEI.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown is away from the Oakland Raiders training camp, and it's unclear when he will report back to the franchise's Napa Valley headquarters. "I'm excited about this season [and] appreciate all the concerns about my feet".

"Brown can't use his preferred helmet - a Schutt AiR Advantage - in 2019, because that specific helmet is more than 10 years old".

Brown is due to make over $30 million over the next two years. On Saturday, following their preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said he hopes to have him available this week. The seven-time pro-bowl pass catcher will be back on the field sooner rather than later. He reportedly suffered frostbite after a mishap at a cryotherapy chamber.
