Kliff Kingsbury has hilarious reaction to Antonio Brown's helmet controversy

The specific helmet Brown wants to wear, is over 10 years old. But there are AiR Advantage helmets out there that are eight or nine years old, and if Brown can find one that fits him properly and is in good condition, the league will let him wear it, the source said.

The all-pro WR enlisted the help of millions of fans by taking to social media and offering a signed practice worn helmet if they can locate a helmet under 10 years old.

He had reportedly threatened to retire if he was not allowed to wear his helmet.

"While I disagree with the arbitrator's decision, I'm working on getting back to full health and looking forward to rejoining my teammates on the field", he wrote on Instagram.

Add this to the drama surrounding the mysterious foot ailment keeping Brown from practicing, which reportedly stemmed from frostbite after using a cryotherapy machine without proper footwear.

Brown took a lot of criticism over the past few days for what appeared to maybe be an overly aggressive effort to change the league's requirements on helmets, but whatever was going on while he was away, it should have at least given his feet enough time to finally heal.

Brown was expected to return to Raiders training camp on Tuesday after a lengthy absence. On Saturday, following their preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said he hopes to have him available this week. I can't say I agree with all of them, certainly, but I support this guy. I hated to put it on the shelf. "I don't know what anybody's writing or what anybody thinks, but this foot injury wasn't his fault". It was a total accident.

It's probably in Brown's best interest to just drop the helmet thing now so he can get used to a new, safer one sooner rather than later. "I hope we can start calling them".
