Antonio Brown threatens to hold NFL liable if he’s injured wearing new helmet, report says

Antonio Brown has taken his helmet grievance against the NFL to a new level.

According to a report from The Athletic, which cited a source with knowledge of Friday’s hearing, the Raiders wide receiver said “he would hold the league liable” if he were to suffer a head injury while playing in the league-mandated helmets.

The grievance hearing was held in Philadelphia, the report noted, and included Darren Heitner, Brown’s counsel, Brown (via phone), NFL Management Council general counsel Larry Ferazani and an NFLPA representative.

Brown, who reportedly insists he will not play unless he can use his old helmet, missed Oakland’s preseason opener Thursday.
