Antonio Brown has never been the type of person to take accountability for anything he does, but he seems to have a reason for that.
The former NFL WR took to his Instagram Live and called out the one person he says that caused him to have CTE, which is a brain condition thought to be linked to repeated head injuries and blows to the head.
It was former Steelers player James Harrison.
“I wanted to tell you guys that I think James Harrison gave me CTE. 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.”

Harrison and Brown were teammates on the Steelers, so we can only guess this hit came from practice.
Over the years, many pointed to Vontaze Burfict as the guy who likely changed his career with a violent hit he delivered to Brown in a playoff game over seven years ago.
It should also be noted that CTE cannot be diagnosed in anybody until after they are deceased. Brown is merely speculating that he has it. He might be showing signs, but he won’t actually be alive to know it.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
