But an arbitrator reportedly ruled against Brown on Monday.

Brown has worn the old style of helmet all throughout OTAs this season, in hopes it could lead to the National Football League legalizing the model. However, some of the older models can no longer stand up to the rigorous safety testing required by the NFL.

"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", Brown wrote on Twitter and Instagram. According to Brown's social media, the answer is no. So, is Brown - arguably the best receiver in the league - going to retire?

Brown is due to make over $30 million over the next two years.

The Raiders traded a third and a fifth-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft to the Pittsburgh Steelers for Brown on March 9, 2019.

Although, it probably won't be. "I hated to put it on the shelf", he said.

Antonio Brown, who is now dealing with a foot issue caused by cryotherapy, threatened to hang up his cleats forever if he can't use the same helmet he's been using since he got into the league. It really wasn't his fault, and it's a serious injury.

Brown argued that his helmet made him feel safe and, save for an illegal hit from Vontaze Burfict in the 2016 playoffs, kept him healthy, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. We understand the league's position as well, so we're in a tough spot. They win on big routes, post patterns, go routes, improvised routes if you get outside the pocket, Brown's always very good at uncovering, you have to be if you play with [Ben] Roethlisberger.

McCarthy didn't mention Brown by name when he tweeted: "The player can't practice or play in games with equipment that's not approved".

"I've got a feeling he would play with no helmet, that's how much he loves to play".
