Former Steeler Antonio Brown blames James Harrison for giving him CTE
By Curt Popejoy,
Just when we think the saga of former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown cannot get more bizarre, he tops it. This time it came in the form of an Instagram Live video.
Brown said in the video that former teammate James Harrison gave Brown a big hit with what he called an illegal helmet and ever since that day Brown was super aggressive.
“I wanted to tell you guys that I think James Harrison gave me CTE,” Brown said. “James Harrison had an illegal helmet for over 20 years in the NFL. And he hit me one time. And ever since he hit me I’ve been super aggressive. So blame James Harrison for my CTE.”
At this point, it is impossible to know when Brown is joking and when he isn’t. I’m not sure he even knows anymore. Making the claim that Harrison wore an illegal helmet for over 20 years in the NFL is wild, especially since Harrison played in the NFL for 16 seasons.
