Brown wants to wear the helmet he prefers, not one of the helmets that league rules mandate, league sources said. Brown believes the new certified helmet protrudes out and interferes with his vision as he tries to catch the football.

The Raiders have been sending Brown other approved helmets to wear, but at this time, he is not interested in wearing any of them.


The helmet that Brown is comfortable in and wore throughout his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers -- believed to be the Schutt Air Advantage helmet, which the company has discontinued making -- is no longer certified by the National Operating Committee for Standards and Athletic Equipment.

Why are wide receivers so often crazy? :lol:
1. Using a team's play in games their star is injured should send you to SSS jail
2. ORTG/DRTG ranks are connected in back and forth play and energy expenditure
3. RAPM/RPM is proven measuring regular season value, but not postseason

Look I don't love change and when I get used to something I usually stick with it but my goodness what a baby.

The NFL better not give in an inch to this guy. He wears the helmet he's suppose to or the door can hit his ass on the way out for all I care.

That's my 20m dollar WR!
He's doing a fine job representing WR group in the league.
