And just when you thought the Antonio Brown helmet drama had come to an end…
The whole situation appeared to be done with after an arbitrator ruled against Browns’ grievance to wear his old helmet. Brown even responded with an Instagram post expressing his excitement to rejoin his teammates on the field, as he continues to nurse his foot issues. But… the 32-year-old made sure to stir the pot with one more tweet. AB is in search of the classic Schutt bucket from his Steeler days and even offered a signed piece of memorabilia in exchange for it.
AB BRINGIN’ THE FIRE! Fans inevitably had a thing or two to say about the tweet:
And as it turns out, Brown is in luck!
The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment requires the helmet to be manufactured in the past ten years, so there's still hope for AB. However... Schutt stopped making the Air Advantage helmet three years ago because the technology behind the helmet is outdated, per For The Win. Time will tell what AB runs out on the field in for his first Game with the Black and Silver on September 9.
