Antonio Brown played his last card to try and wear his favorite helmet brand. The bid was hit on Sunday with a big fat D-E-N-I-E-D, leaving the Oakland Raiders receiver with no option but to keep going.
Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed on Sunday Sirius XM NFL Radio that this is exactly the plan.
"We will move on," Rosenhaus said of the NBC Sports Bay Area. "This door is closed."
Brown's last denied appeal was the second attempt to get an independent umpire to allow him to wear his helmet in 2019. Both attempts were quickly stopped.
The failure is not a total loss for "Mr. Big Chest". Rosenhaus said the helmet Kerfuffle's promotion has boosted business opportunities for the Raiders receiver, who is likely to wear a bespoke helmet and be sponsored by a brand.
"As a result of all the public relations that we have undertaken to make him wear this helmet, he has several offers from various companies on the table to make a custom made helmet for him and to pay him some money." Rosenhaus said. "We have found some very suitable alternatives without going into detail, we are very excited, Antonio will wear a helmet, he will not miss any time, and he will get a lot of money for it." It's a kind of happy ending, even though he can not wear the old helmet.
As with Brown in recent years, despite the Shenanigans following him, business is still booming.
The Raiders wanted Brown to be all-in before the regular season, two weeks before Jon Grudens Team on Monday night against the Denver Broncos at the start, seem all problems of Brown in the past to lie.
"The helmet and the foot, all that is behind him now," said Rosenhaus. "He concentrates fully and football and is ready for another prototype of the season by Antonio Brown. He will flourish with Jon Gruden and Derek Carr. I am very happy that he is making progress. "
