Antonio Brown loses endorsement deal with helmet manufacturer Xenith
Antonio Brown has already lost his deal with his helmet manufacturer.
Just over a week after Brown announced with much fanfare that he’d be wearing a Xenith helmet for the 2019 season and had an endorsement deal to go with it, the company announced that they would be parting ways with Brown.
The helmet manufacturer, Xenith, has decided to end its relationship with Patriots’ WR Antonio Brown.
“We look forward to seeing the Xenith Shadow worn by football athletes at all levels of play this fall,” the company said today.

Brown spent much of the preseason embroiled in controversy after clashing with the NFL over whether he could wear his old helmet. After his efforts were denied, he went with Xenith, complete with endorsement deal. That deal lasted roughly a week and a half.
While no explicit reason was given for Xenith’s decision, it likely has to do with the sexual assault allegations against Brown that have surfaced this week.
