The Quick Facts

  • Antonio Brown of the Oakland Raiders is refusing to play until permitted to use his preferred, ten-year-old helmet.
  • While the wide receiver favors the older model for its shape and visual capabilities, NFL safety regulators have discontinued it as an approved helmet in their continual efforts to prevent concussions and CTE.
  • Along with the frostbite Brown recently suffered from due to a cryotherapy error, the helmet debate has kept him mostly out of practice with the Raiders, to whom he was traded in March, 2019. 

Food For Thought

Is safety a personal choice or an institutional one? How should the NFL deal with Brown's grievances?
