Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown is creating drama for refusing to wear an NFL mandated helmet. He’s even claiming he’ll sue the league if he suffers an injury while wearing the new head covering. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Brown has claimed he’ll retire if he is not allowed to wear his old helmet. In addition to the gear issue, Brown has reportedly missed practices for dealing with frostbite in his feet after not using the proper protection in a cryotherapy chamber.
