Antonio Brown has been mired in a couple of incidents this past week. It was the frostbitten ft. Now, he over with his helmet.
The recipient has threatened to retire over it, and BetOnline has posted odds that hell follow . Can there be some value betting this?
* Odds as of 12/08/2019.
Its tough to think that the bizarre cryogenic room of Antonio Brown was the second-most bizarre story with the star receiver a week. Was that he is willing to retire over using his helmet.
The NFL updates their helmets for safety reasons. You may recall that they have massive issues with concussions that are very public away from going into the sport and families are keeping their kids. It is a significant problem. Brown has become comfortable.
Reporters have suggested he will not play unless the NFL enables him to utilize his previous helmet, Though he has not formally declared his standoff with the team. Thats quite unlikely to occur — particularly since the NFL Players Union has agreed to use this helmet (which suggests Brown is fighting his own marriage ).
Naturally, we have all been waiting to hear. The general consensus was that this may cause a rift between the team and Brown and that he would blow a gasket. Gruden has affirmed him although it is very possible that it is behind the scenes.
What is also worth noting is that Gruden kind of indicated that he expects Brown back. Up until that point, we had not heard anything positive about the problem but it looks like he thinks it will be settled. It may simply be wishful thinking, however, since Grudens ass is on the line.
The core of the matter is that the NFL doesnt allow players to use helmet and Browns is 12. While Brown had been hoping to convince the team to let him use it (he managed to utilize it annually )they responded they are not going to allow him to perform it.
Going ahead (along with the league will go after him ), Brown will probably be in breach of his contract till he performs a league-approved helmet. Otherwise, he wont get compensated. That means he is going to begin losing money and may possibly go the cover of final year after him too. That is speculation at this point.
Still another report on Sunday indicated that Brown is thinking about holding the league accountable if he gets injured in the helmet. The fact that hes interesting that shows hes contemplating using the helmet.
Its difficult to find Brown retiring prior to Week 1. Yes, hes definitely a diva. Yes, hes being over-the-top within this situation. However, the group has come out and support . Its unlikely he tries to screw them over.
Can he hold out and miss Week 1 while searching for a solution? That looks more likely than a permanent retirement. But what I expect is for him and the league to come to some sort of completion. He wishes to be playing and does the Raiders along with the league, so theres motivation to get this done. Bet onNo more.
Let us have fun and keep it civil.
