Finally, all the drama involving Antonio Brown and his helmet has ended. Well, at least that's what we're being led to believe.

Brown is undoubtedly one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. Last season, the All-Pro had 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns.

It's no secret that Brown is a vocal presence on any roster, the star wideout has reached new heights. The biggest topic around the league for the past few weeks has revolved around his playing status for this year.

Not only did he get frostbite on his feet this offseason, but he threatened to retire because his old helmet wasn't approved by the league.

Luckily for the Raiders, it appears both problems have been solved.

Jon Gruden told the media on Tuesday that Brown is "all in" for this season. He also added that Brown has a certified helmet and his feet are no longer an issue.

This is an encouraging sign for the Raiders as they try to look past all the drama that took place this training camp.

Oakland is hoping that Brown can replicate his success from Pittsburgh this upcoming season. The offense is in need of playmakers, and there is little doubt that he's the best player on that unit.

Brown will have a chance to silence his critics in Week 1 when the Raiders host the Broncs.
