According to to two sources, the arbitrator has ruled against Antonio Brown in his grievance to wear the old helmet.— Mike Jones (@ByMikeJones) August 12, 2019
Well, as it turns out, Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown will NOT be allowed to wear his old helmet as it didn’t pass the approved list of helmets from the NFL. Does that mean he’ll retire as he threatened last week?
In a statement on Instagram, Antonio Brown says he’s working to get healthy and “looking forward to rejoining my teammates on the field.” pic.twitter.com/bF2OMFlPyj— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 12, 2019
No, no he will not. The superstar receiver is apparently now looking forward to rejoining his teammates. Hopefully this weird saga is over, because none of it makes sense anymore.
I can confirm reports that QB Dak Prescott has, in fact, turned down 30M a year offer and is instead seeking 40M a year per source informed. #Cowboys— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) August 12, 2019
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has reportedly turned down a contract that averaged $30m per year and is instead seeking $40m per year. Now, obviously there is a hint of hyperbole and negotiation tactics in there, but the fact that Dak’s camp felt comfortable turning down $30m per is surprising. The two sides will likely settle somewhere in that $33-34m range, if at all.
Obviously Los Angeles Rams fans would be wise to keep their eyes on the negotiation between the Cowboys and Dak, simply because QB Jared Goff is next in line for a lucrative contract extension.
Cleveland Browns’ backup defensive end Chad Thomas suffered a scary injury at practice, though some good news was released shortly after as he regained feeling in his extremities. Hopefully Thomas is okay!

Rishard Matthews the football player No Longer Exist & it’s okay. In life regardless of the right or wrong decisions I’ve made. I’ve always moved forward with the understanding that regardless of what I’m going through someone is going through something a shit ton worse than my bull shit. For athletes it’s important to understand & Move the fuck on. One of the Greatest Coaches I’ve been around Coach Rizzi used to say when it’s time to make a play in sports. You think people give a fuck that your tired or hurt. FUCK NO. Apply that to life. Whatever happens. There’s another day & plenty others after that. Move the fuck on No Body Gives A fuck about You Or your problems ✌ ✌

The Patriots are acquiring third-year tight end Eric Saubert from the Falcons in exchange for a conditional seventh-round draft choice, per sources. Saubert is in his third sesson from Drake.— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) August 12, 2019

1) The coaches love 3rd-round WR Terry McLaurin's speed, toughness and versatility. He's already playing multiple spots in Jay Gruden's offense, and I'd say is a lock for a role on offense in the fall -- in addition to his special teams work. He made a circus TD catch this AM.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 11, 2019
The Washington Redskins have seemingly done nothing right as of recently, though the early returns on former Ohio State Buckeyes WR Terry McLaurin are largely positive. The route running extraordinaire has impressed the coaching staff and is likely to play a big role for the offense come September.
