RENTON https://www.raiderslockerroom.com/authen...own-jersey , Wash. (AP)The Seattle Seahawks are hoping Sebastian Janikowski can solve their kicking issues.The team signed Janikowski on Friday amid a number of moves.Seattle also signed quarterback Stephen Morris to have another arm on the roster behind Russell Wilson. Running back J.D. McKissic and defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson signed their exclusive rights free agent contracts for the 2018 season.Janikowski spent 17 seasons with the Oakland Raiders but missed the 2017 season due to a back injury. Janikowski, 40, has made 80.4 percent of his kicks during his career and holds the NFL record with 55 field goals of 50 yards or longer.Janikowski will join former Jacksonville kicker Jason Myers in the competition to replace Blair Walsh, who was inconsistent in his one season as the Seahawks kicker last year.Morris spent time with three teams during the regular season and was with Washington earlier this offseason before being released this month. Seattle had no other quarterbacks on the roster since Trevone Boykin was released late last month.McKissic developed into Seattle’s third-down running back for part of last season. McKissic appeared in 13 games and had three touchdowns. He averaged 4.1 yards per carry in limited work as a ball carrier, but was most effective as a pass catcher. McKissic had 34 catches, fifth-best on the team.— Oakland Raiders receiver Antonio Brown lost his grievance with the NFL on Monday over his use of an old helmet that is no longer certified as safe to use for practice or play.The arbitrator issued the ruling after holding a hearing last Friday with Brown, representatives from the league and the players' union."While I disagree with the arbitrator's decision, I'm working on getting back to full health and looking forward to rejoining my teammates on the field," Brown said in a statement on Twitter . "I'm excited about this season appreciate all the concerns about my feet."Brown has not participated in a full practice for the Raiders after starting training camp on the non-football injury list with injuries to his feet that reportedly came from frostbite suffered while getting cryotherapy treatment in France. Brown was cleared to practice on July 28 and participated in part of two sessions but wasn't around the team last week when he had the grievance hearing with the NFL over his helmet.NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy earlier in the day reiterated the league's stance that Brown wouldn't be allowed to practice or play without a certified helmet." that's not approved Womens Derek Carr Jersey ," McCarthy wrote. "If he doesn't play or practice he is in breach of his contract and doesn't get paid. NFL policy is that helmets have to be certified by NOSCAE. They don't certify equipment that's (older) than 10 years."The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment sets performance and test standards for equipment. Brown's Schutt Air Advantage helmet is no longer allowed because the NFL follows the National Athletic Equipment Reconditioners Association (NAERA) rule that helmets 10 years or older cannot be recertified.Schutt discontinued making the helmet three years ago because current technology had moved past it, according to the company.Brown was one of 32 players using helmets last season that are now banned by the league and players' association. Those players, including Tom Brady, were able to use the helmets last season under a grace period but were required to make the change in 2019.The Raiders didn't practice Monday but are hoping to get Brown back on the field soon."The helmet thing is a personal matter to him," coach Jon Gruden said Saturday. "He has a strong feeling about what he's worn on his head, and we're supporting him. We understand the league's position as well, so we're in a tough spot."Brown has been the game's most prolific receiver the past six years but the Raiders were able to acquire him from Pittsburgh for just a third- and fifth-round pick in March because of problems off the field.
