Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has made headlines for the wrong reasons this offseason. He has requested a trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers. There is no question Brown is the best receiver in the NFL, but other teams should hold off.

He is 30 years old. Brown will have three more years on his contract. The biggest issue with him right now is his erratic behavior and I don’t think anyone wants to deal with it. Antonio Brown’s erratic behavior might be due to CTE.

The definition of CTE is a degenerative brain disease that shows a history of repetitive brain trauma. Early symptoms of CTE usually occur in their late 20s or 30s. It also affects a patient’s mood and behavior and there is a change of behavior which includes impulse control problems, aggression, depression, and paranoia.

Brown suffered a hit in the postseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals on the road and I wonder if this one of the reasons why he is acting this way. He has been a headcase before, but he hasn’t been this bad.

Antonio Brown was involved with a domestic dispute with a woman. He changed the color of his mustache to blond also. Brown was found guilty after skipping a court date for a speeding ticket.

These are some examples of behavior that he has never done before. Not even New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has done this erratic behavior.

Whoever wants to consult the Pittsburgh Steelers about Antonio Brown for a trade, they should ask them to do a CAT Skan and see if he is suffering from CTE. I think this is the reason why he is acting all crazy all of a sudden and some other people are also starting to believe this as well.
