Antonio Brown reports to Raiders training camp surrounded by ‘Hard Knocks’ crew

first_imgAntonio Brown reported to the Raiders’ training camp in Napa, California, Tuesday morning, ending days of drama filled with speculation, a threat of retirement, a lost appeal and more.Brown’s strange preseason ordeal might earn the HBO series “Hard Knocks” an award or two. This year’s show features the Raiders, and the “Hard Knocks” production crew was, not surprisingly, following closely as Brown reported to camp. So was Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus. Later, Brown balked at playing without his old helmet, which is no longer on the NFL’s approved list. He lost an arbitration appeal to use the old model, and reportedly threatened to retire if he couldn’t use the helmet.Monday night, Pro Football Talk reported the NFL and Brown had reached a compromise allowing him to use the helmet model he likes if he could find one made within the past 10 years. And first thing Tuesday morning, Brown tweeted out his search for just such a helmet.Rosenhaus did say, however, that Brown’s feet were always the bigger issue, and that he returned to camp because he had finished treatments. As far as the helmet issue, he said Brown has found some helmets he likes and they will be submitted to the NFL for approval. O.J.

He reported to camp on time — in a hot-air balloon, no less — but was sidelined at first reportedly by frostbitten feet suffered during cryotherapy. Brown brushed off a question about his feet, and Rosenhaus told reporters the All-Pro wide receiver had received laser treatment. He declined to offer specifics because of possible legal action.

What channel is LSU vs. Georgia on today? Time, schedule for SEC championship game 2019

first_imgIt’s a battle of college football heavyweights as No. 4 Georgia and No. 2 LSU meet in the SEC championship game on Saturday in Atlanta.After suffering an early-season setback with a home loss to South Carolina in October, Georgia (11-1, 7-1 SEC) has managed to bounce back with wins over Florida and Auburn. Georgia also looks to avenge its loss in last season’s SEC championship game to Alabama where a now-infamous fake punt doomed the Bulldogs’ chances at the playoff. The Bulldogs can all but guarantee themselves a spot in the College Football Playoff with a win on Saturday, but taking down the Tigers is a tall task.MORE: Watch LSU vs. Georgia live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)LSU (12-0, 8-0 SEC) has been one of the best teams all season. Led by Heisman Trophy contender Joe Burrow at quarterback, the Tigers have not only won this season, but done it in a dominating fashion. While LSU teams of years past have prided themselves on defense, this year’s team has broken the mold and become one of the nation’s best offenses.Burrow’s posted a 93.4 QBR this season while throwing for 4,366 yards, 44 touchdowns and six interceptions. He shattered the LSU single-season passing touchdown record of 28 earlier in the season and may very well eclipse 50 if the Tigers are able to go the distance.It goes without saying that a win on Saturday solidifies LSU’s place in the CFP, but a loss could create a predicament for the selection committee. The Tigers would be a one-loss team, but are they still worthy of a playoff berth over a one-loss Utah team or a one-loss Baylor or Oklahoma?
