The latest wrinkle to Antonio Brown‘s absence

A very weird story keeps getting very Gareon Conley Jersey , very weirder. from the Raiders comes from his refusal to replace his old helmet with an approved model. Unlike Tom Brady, however, the model of helmet Brown wears has not been prohibited. Per a league source, the specific helmet Brown wants to wear is simply too old.Yes, the grace period for 11 prohibited helmet models has ended, requiring players like Brady to ditch wearing models that were not deemed to be sufficiently safe. Brown’s helmet isn’t one of those 11 models. For Brown, the prohibiton comes from the requirement that each and every helmet must be certified by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment, and that the NOCSAE will not certify a helmet that is more than 10 years old.The source explains that Brown’s specific model has been discontinued, requiring him to find another model. But he doesn’t want to find another model, even though the rules apply to all players.Brown wants the rules to not apply to him. And the reason for that may be quite as simple as this: Ever since becoming one of the best players in the NFL, Antonio Brown has always gotten his way, on everything. So, naturally Johnathan Hankins Jersey , he expects to eventually get his way on this, too. The day NFL fans have been waiting impatiently for all offseason has arrived.

The 2019 NFL draft is upon us. The day when we finally get to see what the draft fairy puts under our pillows.The Raiders currently have a total of 8 draft picks, including three in the first round. Here is their full draft order:Round 1, pick 4Round 1, pick 24 (from CHI)Round 1, pick 27 (from DAL)Round 2, pick 35Round 4, pick 106Round 5, pick 140 (from NYJ)Round 7, pick 218Round 7, pick 235 (from SEA)See the full NFL draft order here.What the Raiders will do with their top pick has been the fascination of draft analysts this offseason and the rumors and smokescreens have been everywhere. If you believe them all, the Raiders will be picking basically every top QB in the draft, trade down Womens Bo Jackson Jersey , trade up, take every pass rusher, a couple defensive tackles, and a linebacker.A lot will rely on what the teams do at the positions at the top of the draft. Starting with the Cardinals at number one overall. The consensus has been that they are taking QB Kyler Murray, but lately some reports suggest they could go in another direction.In the end, the only player who seems to be a near unanimous selection in the top three is Ohio State’s Nick Bosa. Most think the 49ers will select him at second overall.The Jets three choices seem to be trade out (which they are said to want to do) or take Kentucky edge rusher Josh Allen or Alabama defensive tackle Quennin Williams. Should they trade down, it seems most likely it would be a team jumping up to grab a QB. Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins is widely considered the next QB off the board after Murray. Missouri’s Drew Lock is also in the conversation.The various scenarios could leave the Raiders with Allen, Williams, or a potential trade down scenario as well. That’s a lot of intrigue right out the starting gates of the draft, so you probably won’t want to miss it.
