Antonio Brown returning to Raiders facility Tuesday

After an arbitrator ruled against Antonio Brown in his helmet grievance, the Raiders wideout said that he was “working on getting back to full health and looking forward to rejoining my teammates on the field.”

Getting back on the field isn’t going to happen immediately, but Brown will be back around his teammates. PFT has learned, via a league source, that Brown will be back at the Raiders’ facility on Tuesday.

Brown has been away from the team for more than a week as he first dealt with injuries to his feet and then with the grievance related to the NFL barring him from using his preferred helmet because it is too old to be certified for use this season. Brown is looking for a version of that helmet — the Schutt AiR Advantage — that is less than 10 years old.

Whether Brown will find that helmet and what he’ll do if he can’t remain open questions, but Tuesday’s trip to Raiders camp may move everyone closer to some answers.

  1. Antonio Brown. Nobody cares about your feet! Nobody cares about your 10-year-old freaking helmet! Nobody wants to hear from your blond mustache mouth! Just go away. Please!!!

  2. Both the feet and helmet are not viable reasons for skipping camp moving to a new team, coach and QB.

    The helmet tantrum is how he plays by his rules to legitimize his behavior. Dude simply does not want to be at camp.

    He won’t be a problem on the field.

    Sure, when he wants to show up. Ask the Steelers how that went week 17 last season for a must win game when Brown went AWOL.

  4. After all this, he’d better be able to perform at a high level on the field or he’ll be barbecued by the media. Oh, and he’ll also have to figure out a way to get it done with a lesser QB, while resisting the urge to throw him under the bus when things don’t go well.

  5. Risks against benefits….this diva is showing all his cards early and may be much more trouble than he is worth !…Time will tell us the answer.

  6. if he didn’t want to go to camp, he’s certainly going to great lengths to avoid it.

    His teammates must think he’s the most selfish moron there is. I don’t see how this ends well.
    ———————–

    We don’t know that. Its very possible there’s lots of guys that agree with him, but don’t have the clout to actually take a stand and they’re happy that someone is voicing their opinion without having to worry about getting cut.

  8. I have never seen such passionate reaction towards a player in my life. The only fans that should care that much are Raiders fans or salty Steelers fans. The rest of us should sit back and enjoy the show.

  9. I thought the nfl wouldn’t let you paint helmets. I seem to remember teams being denied the change for special occasions.

  10. You cant fix bitter Pity Burg Steeler fans …Cooper went to the Cowboys I wish him all the luck some of you fans sound like a bitter old girl friend with more issues then common sense . LOL

    RAIDERS 2019

  11. Ultimately this is not about a helmet. It’s about attention. This guy has issues and will send himself into a downward spiral. The more he cries for attention, the more isolated he’ll become from his team, and the more he’ll cry out, etc etc. It’s a self perpetuating system. That’s why you never sign guys like him, regardless of talent.

  12. Nothing new for wr’s with class leading talent.
    Great risk/reward trade for raiders.
    Came cheaper than amari to cowboys and is the #1 vs a #15-20.
    Deal.

  13. AB will be fine all these WR’s are divas even if the Steeler fans sound like a bitter ex girl friend lol

    No, they think he is a ridiculous self centered moron and are laughing behind his back. But the thing is, and this is how most of us are with our co workers, as long as he delivers his part of the job they are going to tune that out and focus on delivering their jobs too. Because in the end there is something you want to get done so you do that, and then you go home to your real life where that person and their nonsense don’t have to be part of the picture.

  15. I remember a few years back there was talks of where did Antonio Brown start becoming this vocal jerk. As a pats fan from Boston, i asked my buddy who is from Pittsburgh and he said

    MIKE WALLACE.

    When Hines ward was still playing, he kept the receivers in check. After Hines retired and Wallace became “the guy”, his outspoken nature rubbed off on AB.

    When wallace went to Miami…AB was “the guy” hence the BS with him.

  16. He’s only acted this way for a few years. I actually think Vontaze Burfict broke him with that head shot.

  17. I can’t wait to catch his hot air ballooning on Hard Knocks. Nobody puts hot air into the preseason like this guy.

  18. Brown walks in “hey guys I’m back!”

    Turns around and walks out to waiting hot air balloon and floats off into the blue.

    Lolz

    ========================================================================

    100%. But, just like his time with the Steelers, at some point, the bad exceeds the good to such an extent that the relationship is salvageable, and you are willing to let that employee walk. There will always be “something” with Brown that will prove to be a distraction to the team. I have nothing against the Raiders or their fans, it’s just an observation after watching Browns career, and the rapid downward spiral over the last two years or so.

  20. All that hoopla for nothing, it won’t be long now till Steelers fans will be missing him.

    That’s right, Shuster is DEFINITELY not a #1 WR.

  21. This entire charade has been about distracting people from the injuries to his feet. Frostbite leaves nerve damage that frequently lasts a lifetime.

  22. That’s why the raiders and the class organization that they are stood by him and that’s why Carr the class human being that he is didn’t throw him under the bus in the media. That’s why he will ball out this year

  23. Thank God the Steelers fans have those yellow crying towels ..this break up is long lasting LOL

  25. 6 TD’s 780 yards

    He is a queen Diva….. the rules don’t apply to him. This Guy is not a teammate I would play with…..now he should play tennis….Why??? because that is a one man sport. He should excel.

    I am sure you’re worth millions hahahaha! blonde mustache has been gone, you seem a little challenged yourself

  27. stupidsays If no one cares about him why did you not only read the article but post a comment to it within 5 minutes of the story being posted? Seems you care

  28. Lmao steeler fans want to see him fail so bad. It’s ironic that everyone that yells “hes doing it all for attention” etc. Etc. Are the ones giving him the attention. Pathetic group of people. Get a life, and stop worrying about someone who would flash out run circles around you couch slugs in every aspect of life.
