Antonio Brown Posts Cryptic Message On Instagram About Leaving Football Amid Dispute Over Helmet Issue

Antonio Brown might seriously retire over a helmet.

The Oakland Raiders star receiver is in the midst of one of the most bizarre holdouts in NFL history. A dispute that is centered around a specific prohibited helmet that Brown wants to wear.

To go along with the strange demand, Brown put up a cryptic Instagram post that seems to reference leaving the NFL.

The post is a clip of Brown’s Top 100 ranking but the caption is what is catching people’s eyes:

Brown hasn’t even been a full participant in an Oakland Raiders’ practice yet and he’s already threatening to retire?

Man, if only there were cameras following the Raiders along during training camp this year…

Oh wait.
