Drew Rosenhaus: “I don’t think AB is difficult to deal with whatsoever. I can tell you this is more just a byproduct of him wanting the right safety equipment that he’s worn his entire career. This is not about AB and the Raiders as much as it is Antonio, the league, the union, and the new helmet policy they have. This is bigger than the Raiders and Antonio, it’s really about Antonio’s safety and his health.” (FULL INTERVIEW AT BOTTOM OF PAGE)
Listen to prominent sports agent Drew Rosenhaus join The Herd to discuss his client Antonio Brown’s bizarre offseason with a flabbergasted Oakland Raiders team who is seemingly being held hostage by a series of uncanny controversies.
First, Brown was forced to miss the beginning of his first training camp with the team because of ‘frostbitten feet’ stemming from a cryotherapy chamber injury, and then Brown was absent from camp because of a helmet dispute, bred from Brown refusing to play because of a decision the league made that banned Brown’s now-safety stricken dated headwear.
After publicly supporting Brown, at least on the surface to the media, Raiders GM Mike Mayock finally issued Brown an ultimatum saying he’s either ‘all in or all out’ and that the team was no longer going to endorse Brown during his helmet dispute.
Check out the interview below as Rosenhaus says he doesn’t think his client is difficult to deal with, and says this isn’t a Raiders vs. Antonio Brown issue.
