Antonio Brown is threatening to never play football again, apparently telling the Raiders Friday hes done unless the NFL loosens its rule and allows him to wear his old helmet, ESPN reported.
Brown spent two hours on a call with league officials trying to convince them to let him wear a 10-year-old helmet that the NFL has since banned because it doesnt meet the leagues new safety standards, sources told ESPNs Adam Schefter.
When the Raiders were reached for comment, they told this news organization, The Raiders are aware of and are supportive of Antonio, but have no other comment.
