Report: Antonio Brown to claim he was told he could wear old helmet
Antonio Brown may have a helmet that he’s okay wearing at practice, but he’s still going ahead with his grievance against the NFL.
According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, Brown has documentation stating that he was told he could wear a newer version of his preferred helmet. It is not known who told him that and whether it’s binding in any way, which will be for the NFL’s arbitrator to decide.
My understanding is Antonio Brown's side has documentation that he was told he cd wear a newer version of his desired helmet. It'll be up to the arbitrator to determine the relevancy of who told AB that, if relevancy is negated by when he was told & whether it should be binding.

Brown had submitted a newer version of his helmet, but it failed league-mandated testing. This saga looks to be nearly over, but Brown isn’t giving up on his old helmet just yet.
