On Tuesday afternoon, the Oakland Raiders took to the practice field as training camp rolled on.

A familiar face decided to join them. Star wide receiver Antonio Brown spent the past few weeks away from the team looking for a new helmet.

He returned to camp to be with his teammates on Tuesday - with a certified helmet on his head. He's still battling with the NFL to wear the helmet he wants, but at least he was back at practice.

After the feet/helmet saga played on for a few weeks, it looks like Brown is ready to put that all behind him.

He took to Twitter for a message after he returned to the Raiders today.

"Always turn a negative to a positive," Brown said.

Brown is ready to turn his off-field antics into on-field success for the Raiders this year.

The former sixth-round pick is one of the most-productive wide receivers in the NFL over the past decade. He's primed to break Tory Holt's record for most receptions in a decade - and it won't be particularly close.

For now though, he'll have to show Jon Gruden and company that he's 100-percent healthy and ready to roll.

It should make for great television on Hard Knocks tonight.
