Understanding Antonio Brown from JV's blog

Antonio Brown has a history of concussions which can lead to CTE. One symptom

of  CTE is “erratic behavior.” Calling a “tantrum,” an “incident,” a meltdown shows a 

lack of understanding and knowledge. Brown and other @NFLplayers are playing 

undiagnosed. Living life with chronic headaches, changes in mood- including 

depression and agitation, and not realizing these are all symptoms of CTE.

Junior Seau died of suicide after coping with CTE symptoms for most of his life. Some say Seau chose to shoot himself in the chest instead of his head so his brain could be studied. They did, he had CTE. Lived his whole life not knowing, but knew “something was wrong.”
