It was back in January 2016 when the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals were embroiled in a grueling playoff game that had the outcome change drastically when then-Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict delivered a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit on a defenseless Antonio Brown that knocked him out of the game.
Since that game, Antonio Brown’s behavior has become increasingly stranger and stranger, especially during his final year with the Steelers.
He reportedly got into with Ben Roethlisberger, no-showed to a practice ro meeting and forced the team to suspend him for the final game of the year. He then waged war on the team by trashing them constantly and calling for a trade to happen, all while completely changing the color of his his mustache, hair and hair texture for whatever strange reason.
He then called out JuJu Smith-Schuster out of nowhere which led to a report that he was highly upset during the 2018 season for not being named the team MVP.
That post was two hours after he informed people to keep their emotions off social media.
Fast forward to August and now Brown is threatening to end his career because he is not being allowed to wear a helmet style that isn’t approved by the league any longer.
That led to many thinking he might be suffering from CTE that goes back to that Vontaze Burfict hit, who strangely, is now his teammates on the Raiders.
