Trent Brown shared a terrifying story about the 2020 season that almost took his life.
The New England Patriots offensive lineman recalled a story where he was going through a normal pre-game routine before a game against the Cleveland Browns. The then-Raiders player said he receivedhis regular treatment, which included getting an IV.
Everything went terribly after that as an air bubble got into Brown’s bloodstream, and he was rushed to the hospital.
“To pass out and almost go into cardiac arrest was crazy,” Brown said. “I almost died, so it was scary. I was in Cleveland by myself in the hospital for a few days.”
While stuck in that hospital room, the then-27-year-old wondered how much more football he needed to play.
“I definitely thought about my kids. I even thought about retirement. It was that scary,” Brown said. “I was about to be done with it.”
He actually returned later in the season for Las Vegas.
“To actually fully recover, it probably took about eight months to feel normal again,” Brown said. “To actually start making steps as far as improvement to feel like myself again on the field.”
Following two injury-riddled seasons with the Raiders, Trent Brown headed back to New England in a trade. Back in March, he made his frustrations clear with the Las Vegas organization.
“I wasn’t really feeling the place of work, I guess you could say,” Brown said, via the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The veteran offensive lineman said it took him eight months to feel normal again.
