ALAMEDA Isaiah Johnson Oakland Raiders Jersey , Calif. (AP) — in a certified helmet with the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday, two days after being given an ultimatum by general manager Mike Mayock to be “all in or all out.”“He’s all in, ready to go,” coach Jon Gruden said. “That’s my understanding. Really happy to have him out here. He’s a great player.”Brown didn’t attend practice Sunday as he worked to find a helmet he was comfortable using and that met safety standards set by the NFL and NFLPA. He lost a grievance last week in which he sought to be allowed to use the Schutt Air Advantage helmet he has worn throughout his career. But the helmet was too old to be certified as safe.He had hoped to find a newer version of his preferred helmet that could be approved but the one he submitted failed a safety test conducted by the league and union.He filed a second grievance Monday seeking a one-year grace period, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity because it wasn’t made public. But he is back practicing with the team while that gets resolved.Brown was not wearing a helmet during the open portion of practice and spent some of the time during stretch in the nearby weight room. But he walked off the field after practice holding a new helmet and Gruden said he’s running well after also missing time with frostbitten feet.“He’s really good,” Gruden said. “He’s shown great retention of what we’re doing. He didn’t miss the offseason program. … Just good to have him back. He’s in great shape. He’s running hard and running good routes.”Brown didn’t take part in a full practice during the Raiders’ entire training camp stay in Napa, which wrapped up Monday, missing time because of frost bite on his feet suffered in a cryotherapy accident in France and then over the helmet issue.That led to Mayock saying Sunday that the Raiders had supported Brown but had “exhausted all avenues of relief.”Gruden said the drama surrounding Brown hasn’t impacted the team’s preparation for the season.“It’s not been a distraction to me at all,” Gruden said. “I hate to break it to anybody but we’ve known what the status is regarding his feet. He just showed up with frost bite. I never had a guy show up with frost bite. Fortunately we got that thing under control. This grievance thing is no laughing matter. It’s something that’s really important to him. There’s nothing wrong in supporting your players on things they believe in. We also understand the league’s positon but I’m confident that he’s going to be a heck of a player for us and be ready to roll.”Brown had 686 catches and 9,145 yards receiving the past six seasons in Pittsburgh, the best marks ever for a receiver in a six-year span. But he still wore out his welcome with the Steelers after leaving the team before a crucial Week 17 game last season and Oakland was able to acquire him in March for the small price of third- and fifth-round draft picks.The drama that surrounded Brown in Pittsburgh didn’t stop upon his arrival in Oakland even though he was given a hefty raise with a three-year contract worth $50.125 million.Brown arrived at camp with the frost-bitten feet, sending him to the non-football injury list. He was activated on July 28 and participated in parts of two practices before leaving for more than a week to get treatment on his feet and to deal with the helmet grievance. It’s an off day for the Raiders Isaiah Johnson Jersey 2019 , making the perfect split because they’ve practiced 8 of their 16 training camp days so far.

Since we are at the halfway point, let’s take a look at some of the players who have shown well for themselves at each position.QuarterbackStandout: Derek CarrNot a big shocker here. He looks downright flawless thus far in camp. Rarely does he throw an errant pass. His new deep threats are enjoying when they get a step on their defender, he rewards them with the ball right on their hands. Keep in mind that there is no sacking the quarterback in camp. If there is pressure, the defender must just run by. Other times, in 7-on-7s or one-on-ones there aren’t any pass rushers at all. Carr’s biggest test will occur when pass rushers are bearing down on him. But there’s no questioning his arm talent and rapport with his new receiving corps.Sleeper: NoneNeither Mike Glennon or Nathan Peterman has jumped out. The lesser of the evils, if you will, is Glennon. Peterman has mostly looked plain terrible. Despite Gruden’s claim that “This Nate Peterman is growing on me.” Peterman has already given a woman a black eye with a pass that sailed into the stands and nearly hit me with one too (I don’t move quick with my leg brace from my broken kneecap surgery) and I was not exactly standing on the field. Running backStandout: Doug Martin The veteran back looks as quick and elusive as ever and has shown some great hands as well. Rookie Josh Jacobs is the one who is supposed to have the great hands, but it can be hard to tell the difference between them at time. And not just because Jacobs is now wearing Martin’s number 28 from last season.Sleeper: Alec Ingold With Keith Smith out with a knee injury, Ingold has stepped up as the only fullback on the field. He has made some aggressive blocks and has even mixed it up a couple times with defenders who get frustrated with him.Wide receiverStandout: Tyrell Williams Raiders coaches have said a couple times that coming into this offseason Cheap Isaiah Johnson Jersey , Williams was their target as the team’s number one receiver. That was until Antonio Brown became a possibility. With Brown out with injury, Williams has looked every bit the number one receiver talent the Raiders see in him. A long strider with plenty of height and leaping ability, he makes leaping grabs look routine and he has deceptive speed to separate both with and without the ball in his hands.Sleeper(s): JJ Nelson, Marcell Ateman, Keelan Doss I couldn’t narrow it down between these three. All of them have made a case for grabbing the final couple wide receiver roster spots. That’s what the rest of camp and preseason will work out. They’ve all put themselves in position to be chosen at this point.Tight endStandout: Darren Waller Pegged as the starter despite just a few months ago being signed off the Ravens’ practice squad and spending the final few games with the Raiders. As much of a ‘proof is in the pudding’ skeptic as a tend to be, I must say it’s not hard to see why Gruden has the faith in Waller that he does. He has been impressive. He’s like a big wide receiver out there. He’s a mismatch on linebackers and even gets behind the safeties quite often. Prior to the last couple days in which he hasn’t practiced with a shoulder injury, he was making a stellar catch every practice.Sleeper: Foster MoreauMostly he’s a blocking tight end. But he has also shown some sneaky receiving skills as well.Just the past couple days of camp, he’s had a long over-the-shoulder grab and a diving catching at the goal line. Both showed athleticism he’s not supposed to possess. Good for the rookie fourth round pick in his battle with veteran Luke Willson at the position.Offensive lineStandout: Trent Brown When he stands with the other offensive lineman, he is like a head taller than them. A monster of a man, he has his way with every pass rusher or linebacker he encounters. Vontaze Burfict called him a wall who is so big he blocks his sightline so he can’t even see the ball carrier. That’s a good description.Sleeper: TBD I haven’t noticed another offensive lineman making a case for himself to sneak onto the roster. Hopefully that will happen over the second half of camp and especially in the preseason. But I will tell you who has NOT made a case for himself and that’s Brandon Parker. He gets worked on the regular by speed rushers. That was a common sight last season when the third round rookie gave up 14 sacks in 12 starts and he has yet to show strides in that area. He better get to it.See the standouts and sleepers on defenseFollow @LeviDamien
