Oakland Raiders star Antonio Brown has lost another helmet grievance with the NFL.

According to Ian Rapoport on Sunday, he lost his latest attempt to wear his old and outdated helmet, but it’s not all bad news for Brown. ProFootballTalk also reported that he is “close to picking a new helmet” and will have an endorsement deal tied to it.

I’m just ready for this whole saga to just be over with. It seems like all we’ve talked about when it comes to the Raiders lately is Antonio Brown and his damn helmet issue.

At some point, everybody needs to just move on. I really don’t understand why this is so difficult for Brown.

He’s getting paid millions of dollars to catch footballs for a living. If he’s upset about his helmet, then that’s on him.

Brown better hope like hell the Raiders are good this year. Winning solves everything, and loses only makes problems much worse.

Given how big of a distraction he’s already been for the team, the spotlight on him won’t be pretty if the Raiders are awful this season.

Win or lose, at least the Raiders are going to be incredibly entertaining. It should be a ton of fun to watch how Gruden handles all of this.

Should be a fun time!
