It appears the Oakland Raiders patients are running thin with wide receiver Antonio Brown since he hasn’t even practiced or played in a game yet.
Antonio Brown has made it CRYSTAL CLEAR that he wants to use his helmet and all would be good, but the Raiders will NOT let him, and he has yet to find a helmet that works. It’s his head and neck he has to worry about on the field while the owners sitback and drink and the coaches keep their ass on the sidelines so we get it. Read on to see what the Raider issued to AB…

CelebNSports247.com reports that the Raider gave the bottom line today saying, “Antonio Brown not here because he’s upset about the helmet. Mike Mayock wants him back with the team. He’s all in or he’s all out.”
Brown jumped on Twitter last week to issue a search for a new helmet, but he got more bad news when he learned that the helmet he found FAILED to pass the NOCSAE (National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment) testing.
Since AB received the news, he skipped practice on Sunday because he was upset with the ruling.
On Sunday, Raiders GM Mike Mayock issued a stern warning to Brown to be “all in or all out” because the franchise has “exhausted all avenues” on this helmet issue.
Meanwhile, Antonio Brown’s agent spoke with @RosenhausSports providing an update on where AB stands with the Raiders:
“I wouldn’t make too much of him not being there today.” https://t.co/yaOxlFulLn
