I did not see him say that he will comply.

Everybody is saying that this guy is a diva and yadaa...yadaa.  I do not necessarily disagree with that, but I think this guy has gone batshit crazy to a degree in the last couple of years. His behavior has went past the diva personality.

The helmet is acting older than Antonio Brown is.
The helmet is wearing Antonio Brown for protection.

His Instragram post within the linked article is as much of a concession speech as we'll get, but the act of returning to camp with the Raiders is an effective statement of compliance because he can't take the field wearing the old one.

Yep, he coming back.

Watch out, Carr. Your career is about to change. Not for the better.

The shit just keeps getting weirder with AB.


How long do the Raiders keep putting up with the bullshit?

I have to admit, after Antonio Brown sent his Instragram message about coming to camp, I considered this a closed issue. Why he had this seeming about face is confusing. Mike Mayock put it pretty well when he said the team supports Brown in this argument, but the avenues for getting his favored helmet approved have been exhausted and there's probably no way to get it done. I'm still of the opinion that by week 1 he will be in uniform and playing. As for what the Raiders can do next, the team is in a bind. Cutting him would mean taking a big cap hit, losing their top WR, and getting nothing in return. If he's traded, and perhaps he's not happy to be a Raider and this is some sort of strange exit strategy, the return will be lower. My take is the team waits him out. I truly don't think he'll retire.

Brown had the fictitious injury last to get out of training camp practices. I am thinking maybe the helmet issue was a means to get out if the preseason. He does think that his personal training provides him with the necessary action to get him game ready. It has been said that he truly is a warrior when practicing, so maybe this is a way to get out of the team practice routine.

Just reported locally during the Raider pre-game show that Antonio Brown is shopping (pimping?) helmet companies and he will only choose one that comes with a full endorsement deal. Not necessarily wrong or right imo, I obviously believe in capitalism. But I can also see how some might call this more prima donna horshit?
