How Antonio Brown Sabotaged His Own NFL Career

Antonio Brown's massive flame out that resulted in him being cut from both the Patriots and the Raiders was one of the most massive stories of the 2019 offseason. In a span of months, Brown went from one of the highest paid wide receivers in the NFL, to out of a job, losing tens of millions of guaranteed money as his contracts were voided. But how on Earth did he fall from grace so hard and so fast? This video covers the full saga over the past year as Brown has plummeted from best wide receiver in the NFL, to out of a job entirely.

  • By all accounts he was a normal, hard working player for most of his career. The accumulation of hits to the head sent his brain back to a point where he's just a 10 year old kid pretending to be a controversial NFL star.

  • Look at pics and interviews with AB before Burfict hit then after, his eyes went from normal to CRAZY looking. He don't even look like the same person.

  • My goodness.... great work. I would love to @ Mr. Brown himself so that he may have proper introspection. I really look forward to never seeing this idiot touch a football field ever again (Arena League maybe) There are NFL Divas and then there is Antonio Brown. Team after team tried to secure your services and give you benefit of the doubt while some third string WR is fighting for touches. GTFO and STFO of the league.

  • I think Antonio Brown could win the guarantee money on both of his recent contracts because of chronic traumatic encephalopathy. It was thought that CTE developed later in life until Boston University examined Ex Patriots tightened Aron Hernandez brain. Boston University not only determined that Hernandez had CTE but his brain was at an advance stage. The stages of CTE go from 1 to 4 and Hernandez's brain was reported to be at the third stage. Hernandez was only 27 at the time of his death. With the symptoms lining up with Antonio Brown behavior over the last year. I know very little about how the legal system works in civil cases but I think that Antonio Brown's civil case would be a slam dunk for Mr Brown

  • I'm glad you pointed out the CTE thing. It is very interesting as a Cubs fan who observed how Sammy Sosa's personality and all the major other issues that started to plague him all seemed to follow shortly after taking a massive head shot pitch that shattered his helmet. Ever since that day he never seemed to be the same. Now again, it's not taken away his steroid use and that kind of crap I'm just saying his behavior his attitude in front of the camera and around players, etc. I truly believe there is something to be said about behavior and post-concussion.

  • Lets be honest that sport is full of people breaking the law drunk driving beating up girlfriends and wives, assaulting police and drug offenses and even murder, and people are surprised that another one was caught in a sexual abuse scandal true or false time will tell. President Trump was correct they are Thugs and unlike what some people claim it is not a black thing calling someone a Thug, a thug is a ruffian, gangster or quite commonly put a Criminal and someone who has a record and keeps doing bad things is a thug forcing others to do what they want.

  • Being a pro player today is less about playing and more about being a playboy & a star. All these players just want the money, the Gucci suits, and the women. Such is the case is AB. He thought he was more important than his teammates, the teams, and the league itself. Guess that can easily happen though when you're getting paid $30m to run 100 yards with a ball..

  • He was a 6th rd pic from Central Michigan. He blossomed and when the one trick pony Mike Wallace balked at his contract it was given to Brown. Both Brown and Bell were pains in the asses and the Steelers could have gotten some great picks or a slew of 2nd & 3rd round picks.

Watch an interview with derek carr, regardless of your opinion of his play! How bout tom brady not demanding a raise, contract etc.....being one of the lesser paid qb's and the absolute definition of team player. Paycut equals more better players to upgrade your team! And shit i am a chiefs fan so i have a slight hate for tb12 regardless from last year! ha ha
