Antonio Brown has been with the Oakland Raiders for a cup of coffee and he’s already threatened to retire over a reason most people in the football world haven’t been able to quite comprehend.

Especially Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

To refresh your memory, Brown said he would stop playing professional football if he could no longer wear his recognizable Schutt helmet from his days with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Long story short, Brown filed a grievance to wear his old bucket but was denied by an arbitrator, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Seriously though; leave football for a helmet? Is this guy crazy? Our guy Kingsbury basically admitted that nothing could take him out of the game he loves…


The dude’s first love is clearly football #FootballGuy.

Don’t worry though Raiders fans, you can breathe a little easier now. After discovering the Arbitrator’s decision, AB issued an Instagram expressing his excitement to rejoin his teammates on the field.



It looks like #AntonioBrown won’t be walking away from football 👀

The Raiders happen to visit the Cardinals on Thursday night, so maybe the two can have a chat about the situation ahead of kickoff.
