Antonio Brown’s helmet crusade against the NFL isn’t showing any signs of stopping. The talented and mercurial wide receiver has reportedly filed another grievance against the league.
According to Pro Football Talk, Brown’s latest grievance is once again with the NFL’s stance of not allowing him to wear a Schutt AiR Advantage helmet that is less than 10 years old. Brown’s preferred model was outlawed by the league this year.
A report earlier today from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said that Brown has found two more helmets for the league to test.

If we had to take a guess, this latest grievance from Brown isn’t going to be upheld either.
After skipping practice on Sunday due to the ongoing helmet crisis, Brown returned to the Raiders today. The team’s walk-through practice was canceled but Brown was reportedly at the facility and participated in a team meeting.
The Raiders would obviously like to have all of this behind them as soon as possible. It doesn’t look like that is going to happen though.
