Drew Rosenhaus admits Antonio Brown never considered retirement over helmet
All those rumors that Antonio Brown would rather walk away from football if he didn’t get to wear his preferred helmet weren’t rooted in reality.
Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, admitted Tuesday that Brown never legitimately considered retiring or walking away from the Oakland Raiders in the midst of his helmet-related drama.

Was the threat never real or was Brown simply trying to bluff? The fact that he opted to rejoin the team immediately after the NFL handed down its ruling suggests he figured it would end this way and was trying to bluff, but it certainly seems they wanted the rumor out there.
