Brown, though, enlisted the fans’ help in finding him a similar helmet approved by the National Athletic Equipment Reconditioners Association. In return, he’s offering a signed, practice-worn helmet of his own.
The 31-year-old said he’d be retiring if he’s not allowed to wear his old helmet, but since has noted he will continue playing football with the Raiders despite the helmet situation.
“All the talk about retirement and everything else, that’s not a consideration right now,” Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus said, per ESPN. “He’s committed to the team, he’s committed to the season, and everyone can take solace in that. He’ll be playing this year and playing for the Raiders.”
Well, at least NFL fantasy football owners won’t have to worry about Brown sitting out the 2019-20 season.
