It's becoming nearly impossible to keep up with Antonio Brown's helmet saga and apparent no-show to training camp. A little less than 24 hours after an NFL arbitrator ruled against the superstar wideout in his helmet grievance case against the NFL, he took to Twitter asking for help to find a post-2010 Schutt Air Advantage helmet.
Well, it would appear that Mr. Big Chest's threat to retire from football wasn't exactly genuine, as he finally made an appearance to Raiders camp on Tuesday with agent Drew Rosenhaus.
And in case you were wondering, YES, he was wearing two shoes on his alleged frostbitten feet.
So, are we to assume that his frostbite has healed...less than a week after Oakland claimed there was no timetable for the All-Pro's return? We're no medical experts, but walking on frostbitten feet should be prohibited at this stage in his recovery, especially since Brown's case was labeled as "extreme."
Today's cameo in Napa, Calif. will stand as Brown's first since showing up to Oakland's mini camp in July (in a freaking hot air balloon).
Antonio Brown will be back at the Raiders’ facility in Napa today, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 13, 2019
All that's left to do now is wait for a report on the Central Michigan product's involvement in today's practice. Given his erratic behavior that's spanned virtually the entire offseason, it wouldn't surprise us.
