Antonio Brown found out Sunday that his second grievance against the NFL in an effort to wear his preferred choice of helmet, the Schutt AiR Advantage, this upcoming season was rejected. While it appeared he was simply making a mountain out of a molehill with this ongoing helmet disagreement, the Oakland Raiders star wide receiver has made this molehill of an issue into a mountain of cash. 

ProFootballTalk reports Brown will choose from multiple companies that are creating a customized helmet for him, and they will even pay for him to wear it.

He might even go so far as to go the factory that makes it and livestream it on facegram or instabook.

Maybe picked up one endorsement while ruining his name and other endorsements but sure.  I mean, he "won" the trade to get out of Pittsburgh...and then proceeded to continue the crazy to the point he's basically turned into a walking meme.

One of the top-3 distractions in the league....interestingly they are evenly distributed across the country.

The guy is playing tiddlywinks but some marketing guy at a helmet company had a good idea. 

Antonio Brown has gotten so high on his own supply that you can see the cautionary tale building as he goes. The guy just does not have someone in his life who can tell him when the emperor has no clothes.

    • Teddy was good in college, so much so that I remember a few Huddlers mentioning "tanking for Teddy" the season before he came out. And, it's not like his winning ways haven't translated to the NFL, regardless of whether someone believes he only did it because he had a good team surrounding him. At some point, one really has to concede that you're not going to take a trash team to the playoffs, regardless of who you are. Unlike Trent Dilfer who simply didn't have to do much, Bridgewater actually had to win a few games. His defenses were very good, but they weren't historical. But, I can understand why you'd think of Teddy as a game manager. That's not necessarily a bad thing in all cases. We almost one a Super Bowl with a glorified game manager (and Delhomme was one in my opinion), but this brings me to the next point, which is sometimes that has a lot to do with the HC's and OC's philosophy as well.  I have questions about Teddy, believe me. But I have less questions about his ability to get some wins than whether or not his decidedly small frame can hold up to the rigors of the NFL. I mean, he really had a catastrophic injury. If he hadn't his career just might be on full showcase as opposed to a reclamation project. I'm not going to count it against him because he played on decent defensive teams, including one as a rookie, but then got hurt in the third year when many QBs show marked improvement and start putting it all together. If anything, he didn't have to be as proficient or efficient as he was, particularly in his sophomore season, considering the relatively little experience that he had. The other two seasons were pretty much throwaways where he didn't get any credible playing time and rehabbing both physically and mentally, and people not really believing that he could resume any semblance of success (which probably had to do moreso with his injury than anything else). Bottom line: He took the reigns and stayed the course for one of the best in NFL history. So, yeah, I'm not sure he can get us to where we want to ultimately go, but if he stays healthy, I wouldn't bet against him. His career is the epitome of disjointed, but injuries do that to even the Cam Newtons and Andrew Lucks of the league who had considerably more time at the helm.  This year (or next) will tell us a lot.  
    • The thought is that the upper end QB's in this upcoming class are "safer" bets. Even after Lawrence and Fields it does actually look like a strong QB class, depending on who declares.
    • Not sure if you mean Trubisky, Darnell, Mayfield or Murray here?  Point being even if we manage a tanking, it is a coin flip at best.
