The Facts: Following up on the previous item. ... Another grievance has been filed by Brown against the NFL in his attempt to wear the helmet he prefers. It's expected that the arbitration will happen "on an expedited basis," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported, though an exact time frame is unknown.
Diehards Line:Brown, who had his first helmet grievance denied by an arbitrator on Aug. 12, is now arguing he should be provided the same right as other players in terms of having a one-year grace period to phase out using his helmet. He is claiming the NFL is arbitrarily applying its rules. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero added Brown is also arguing the NFL is unreasonably exercising its management rights in the seemingly never-ending saga of A.B. drama that extends all the way back to the final days of the receiver's 2018 season with the Steelers. And it's apparently not ending any time soon.
