Jon Gruden: Antonio Brown finally wearing certified helmet, is ‘all-in’

Antonio Brown

Following the walkthrough, Gruden told reporters Brown practiced with a certified helmet and has told the team he is “all-in.”

Brown needs a certified helmet to be able to take part in practice, so it’s a positive sign that he’s willing to wear one so he can join his teammates in preparing for the season. However, there is no reason to believe he has given up his fight against the league after he filed a second grievance over the helmet issue on Monday.

Brown is adamant about being able to continue wearing the same model helmet he has worn since his rookie year, and he even reportedly tried to trick the Raiders with a bootleg helmet. The situation has been a distraction for weeks, which can’t be sitting well with Gruden or the organization.
