The Oakland Raiders wide receiver lost his second grievance, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source. Rapoport added that there are no further proceedings expected.
Brown's hearing this past Friday involved the same independent arbitrator as his first hearing. The All-Pro wideout argued he should be given a one-year grace period to phase out using his helmet. Brown has not played in the preseason while dealing with the helmet issue and a foot injury.
Does this mean Brown will again be stuck between a helmet and a hard place? He has 30 million reasons not to be.
